Bengals re-sign Taylor Mays

CINCINNATI — The Bengals re-signed safety Taylor Mays on Monday, a week after he became an unrestricted free agent.

Mays is a 4-year veteran who played in the first eight games last season before dislocating his shoulder, ending his season.

The 49ers drafted Mays in the second round in 2010. Cincinnati got him in a trade the following year. Mays has played 50 games overall, starting 10 of them.

Seattle, K Steven Hauschka agree to new deal

RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks and kicker Steven Hauschka have agreed to terms on a new multi-year contract after the best season of his career.

The team confirmed the agreement on Monday. Terms of the contract were not released. NFL.com reported it's a 3-year deal worth up to $9 million.

Hauschka was a standout last season for the Seahawks. He missed only two field goals during the regular season, one of which was blocked. He made 33-of-35 kicks overall, was perfect from beyond 50 yards and made all of his extra point attempts. Hauschka also improved his kickoffs with a career-high 48 touchbacks.

In the postseason, Hauschka was a perfect 8-of-8 on field goal attempts.

Hauschka finished his third season with the Seahawks. Before coming to Seattle in 2011, Hauschka kicked for both Baltimore and Denver.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Minor league outfielder Steve Selsky doubled in two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for the Cincinnati Reds, who bounced back from blowing a 3-run lead and rallied to beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 on Monday.

Indians minor league pitcher Tyler Guuilmet gave up singles to Argenis Diaz and Ramon Santiago, who is bidding for a bench role for the Reds.

Selsky then drove in the tying and winning runs. Tyler Holt was injured trying to field the ball in the left-field corner.
