PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — New York Mets captain David Wright won't participate in baseball activities for two months because of back and shoulder issues. It's another setback in his attempt to return from injuries that have sidelined him for two years. Meanwhile, Mets star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is sidelined after hurting a wrist. New York made the announcements today, a day after Wright was examined by Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson tells ESPN he plans to sign with the Chicago Bears. The 2015 Pro Bowl selection says he intends to sign a three-year, $42 million contract when free agency opens tomorrow. The Bears were looking to upgrade their struggling receiving corps and surround quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with more playmakers.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins is predictably the top priority on Minnesota's offseason shopping list. His agent says Cousins will visit with the Vikings on Wednesday after the league year begins. ESPN reported today that Cousins will sign with the Vikings, but McCartney said no decision has been made yet by his client. The New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals are the other clubs expected to pursue Cousins.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams is putting off retirement to return for a 13th season in Buffalo. The 34-year-old has established himself as the team's most respected leader both on and off the field. Williams is a one-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection and been a starter since the Bills selected him in the fifth round of the 2006 draft out of LSU.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have re-signed safety Tavon Wilson. Detroit made the move today, a day before the start of free agency. Wilson has started 23 of 25 games the last two years with the Lions. The New England Patriots picked Wilson in the second round in 2012 and the former Illinois star played in 54 games, starting four, over four years with them.
