March 1, 2013 | Daily News Wire Reports
THE DALLAS COWBOYS have reworked the contracts of five starters, including DeMarcus Ware , Jason Witten and Miles Austin , to save salary-cap space. Meanwhile, it also was reported Thursday that the NFL's salary cap for the 2013 season will rise to $123 million from $120.6 million in 2012. Dallas, which was penalized $5 million off its cap in both 2012 and '13, needed to scramble to free up space. By restructuring the deals of star linebacker Ware, tight end Witten, wide receiver Austin, cornerback Brandon Carr and center Ryan Cook , the Cowboys wiped out the $20 million they were projected to be over the cap this year.

The Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco's agent plan to meet this weekend in their first attempt to reach a new contract for the Super Bowl MVP. Joe Linta will be in Indianapolis at the NFL's scouting combine for the first negotiations since August. After the team and Flacco couldn't agree on an extension or a new deal last summer, Flacco played out the final year of his rookie contract - and struck it big. He led the Ravens to the AFC North title, then to playoff victories over Indianapolis, Denver, and New England before beating San Francisco in the Super Bowl.

Teenage rookie J.T. Miller scored his first two NHL goals in his second career game to lift the Rangers to a 4-1 victory over the Islanders at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night. Miller, who won't turn 20 until March, gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead just 1 minute, 29 seconds in and then pushed their advantage to 3-1 in the second period with a rare power-play goal for the club. Elsewhere: Sidney Crosby extended his points streak to six games with a goal and two assists, and the Penguins pounded the lifeless Capitals, 5-2. . . . Ilya Kovalchuk broke a tie with a shorthanded goal late in the second period, and the Devils won their third straight game with a 4-2 home victory over the slumping Tampa Bay Lightning.

VETERAN Kimmo Timonen may be close to signing a 1-year contract extension with the Flyers, but no deal has been completed, according to general manager Paul Holmgren. "We have had talks, but no deal is in place," Holmgren said in a text message, confirming the discussions with Chicago-based agent Bill Zito. Multiple reports pegged Timonen's extension at $6 million, which would make him the 16th-highest paid defenseman in the NHL at age 38. That's an interesting figure, since Timonen has been slowed by injuries over the years and the salary cap will shrink by $5.9 million to $64.3 million.

The Eagles have longer than the three days following the Super Bowl to decide if they want to keep Michael Vick without having to pay a guaranteed $3 million. The Eagles quarterback is due to receive that amount on Feb. 6, but the team is likely to buy time until the start of free agency on March 11 because of a provision in Vick's contract. The Eagles would owe him the money only if no one else picked him up or if someone signed him for less than $3 million, according to an NFL source.

Howie Roseman got what he wanted. In Chip Kelly, the Eagles general manager will have a copilot who will stay on his side of the cockpit. There had been reports long before the Eagles hired the Oregon coach that Kelly wanted full authority on football matters. Not so. When he showed up for his interviews with the Eagles, Cleveland Browns, and Buffalo Bills earlier this month, Kelly made it clear from the get-go that he didn't want final say on personnel matters, a source familiar with his thinking said.

Flyers founder Ed Snider usually sleeps until 8 a.m. on the weekend, but for whatever reason, he woke up at 5 a.m. in his suburban Philadelphia home on Sunday, checked his cellphone, and learned the NHL's 113-day labor dispute had ended. For Snider, it was the perfect way to celebrate his 80th birthday. "This ranks right at the top, as far as birthday gifts," he said in a telephone interview. "What a great birthday!" When Snider read that the lockout was over, he immediately sent an e-mail to Gary Bettman, the NHL commissioner.

At 5:30 Sunday morning, Flyers winger Scott Hartnell texted the good news to his teammates. "Deal done, boys. " When Jody Shelley read Hartnell's text that the NHL's 113-day labor dispute had ended, he did a double take. "I didn't know whether to believe him," Shelley, the Flyers' enforcer, said Sunday afternoon. "I was like, 'Yeah, right.' And then I did a little research on Twitter, and it was blowing up. " Hartnell wasn't fibbing. The NHL and the players' union reached a tentative agreement at around 5 a.m. on a 10-year collective bargaining agreement, putting an end to a work stoppage that lasted almost four months.

With an assist from a federal mediator, the NHL and the players' union appear to be inching closer to a settlement that would end their lengthy labor dispute, bring players back from Europe, and start a shortened season in less than two weeks. If an agreement is reached by Friday, a 48-game season would start Jan. 19, with teams likely playing a conference-only schedule. After both sides talked separately Saturday morning with federal mediator Scot Beckenbaugh in New York City, the parties got together near 1 p.m. - the first time they had met in the same room since negotiations broke down early Thursday morning.
