NFL-BROWNS/FALCONS

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Cleveland Browns and Atlanta Falcons have been reprimanded by the NFL.

Browns' general manager Ray Farmer has been suspended for the first four games next season for sending text messages to the sideline during games. Farmer, who has acknowledged sending the messages, will not be paid during his suspension. The Browns organization was also fined $250,000, but not stripped of any 2015 draft picks.

The Atlanta Falcons weren't so lucky as the league stripped the organization of a draft pick and suspended team president Rich McKay from the league's Competition Committee beginning April 1 following the team's use of fake noise at home games. The league also announced that the Falcons have been fined $350,000 and will forfeit their fifth-round selection in the 2016 draft. If the Falcons have multiple picks in that round, the highest selection will be forfeited.

The NFL noted throughout the 2013 season and into the 2014 season the Falcons violated league rules that state "at no point during the game can artificial crowd noise or amplified crowd noise be played in the stadium."

NFL-PANTHERS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Panthers have signed free agent running back/kick returner Jordan Todman from the Jacksonville Jaguars to a one-year contract. The 25-year old spent the last three seasons with the Jags, playing in all 16 games in 2014, carrying the ball 32 times for 186 yards. He also caught 25 passes for 198 yards with a 23-yard score.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL-AP ALL AMERICA TEAM

UNDATED (AP) -- The Associated Press has named its annual men's basketball All-America team. The starting five is led by three players headed to the Final Four this weekend, Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky, Kentucky's Willie Cauley-Stein and Duke's Jahlil Okafor (juh-LIHL' OH'-kuh-for).

Kaminsky, a 7-foot senior from Wisconsin, was a unanimous choice while Okafor, a 6-11 freshman from Duke, received all but one first-team vote. Rounding out the first five are Notre Dame senior Jerian Grant and Ohio State freshman D'Angelo Russell.

MLB-TRANSACTIONS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Catcher Sandy Leon (lee-OHN') has been traded to the Boston Red Sox by the Washington Nationals for cash considerations. Leon was the third catcher on Washington's depth chart and in 34 major league games with the Nationals over the past three seasons hit .189 with three doubles, one homer and five RBIs.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Left-hander Paul Maholm has been released from a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds. He agreed to the deal Jan. 28 and had a 2.19 ERA in five spring-training games, allowing three runs, seven hits and two walks in 12 1-3 innings with five strikeouts. Maholm was 1-5 with a 4.84 ERA in eight starts and 22 relief appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers last year.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The battle for supremacy of the NBA's Southwest Division continues tonight as the two teams vying for the top spot, Houston and Memphis, are both in action. The now first-place Rockets, who have won four straight and seven of 10, are visiting Atlantic Division champ Toronto, while the slumping Grizzlies, who have lost three in a row and five of 10, are home to Sacramento.

Two teams vying for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference are squaring off tonight as Charlotte plays host to Boston. As a new day begins the Celtics are a half-game back of idle Brooklyn for the eighth spot while the Hornets are a full game back of the Nets.

The remaining games this evening feature the Southeast Division champion Atlanta Hawks, who have clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference, home to Milwaukee, the Utah Jazz at Minnesota, Portland home to Phoenix and the Lakers at Philadelphia in a game that features two teams with a combined 37 wins.

NBA-ROCKETS

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist and will miss the remainder of the season. He injured the wrist during the Rockets' win over the Indiana Pacers on March 23. He had averaged 10.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 56 games for the Rockets this season.
