Ten-time All Star free agent Ichiro Suzuki has agreed to join the Miami Marlins this season, according to multiple reports.

Ichiro, who will enter the season at 41 years of age and is 157 hits away from his 3,000th hit, is being brought in as depth and insurance to a thin outfield corps.

The contract, a reported, one-year $2 million deal, could be extended after this season if the Marlins want to be the team Ichiro reaches the 3,000th hit with, though a 2016 extension probably won't be in the cards.

The Miami Dolphins finally did something right, it would seem.

After a three-year relationship with SeaWorld, the Dolphins are ending their marketing partnership with the theme park. For SeaWorld, it's yet another company that has broken ties. Southwest Airlines, Virgin America, STA Travel, Hyndai, and Taco Bell have all distanced themselves.

Just last year, animal rights groups were calling the Dolphins out for promoting SeaWorld as a way to entice people to become season ticket holders.

While the Dolphins finished another year without making the playoffs and their owner has bungled things up yet again by building a confusing hierarchy, there's been at least one bright spot: Ryan Tannehill's emergence.

And now reports from Dolphins camp have begun to surface that the team is ready to make Tannehill their long-term guy by giving him a contract extension.

On Wednesday, General Manager Dennis Hickey met with the media for the first time since the season ended and addressed the possibility of giving the Dolphins quarterback that extension.

Five Reasons the Florida Panthers Should Be Getting Your Full Support

Last year, the Florida Panthers ended the season at the bottom of the conference standings and among the worst teams in the league. They're a team constantly mired in controversy. For various reasons -- from terrible management to a lack of fans buying tickets to the fact the South Florida has never truly embraced ice hockey -- the Cats have been mostly an afterthought in the local sports narrative.

Yet the Panthers have been sneakily making some serious noise in the NHL this season. Enough to where serious hockey fans and opposing teams have begun to take notice.

Fact is, going to a Panthers game at the BB&T Center is one of the cheapest thrills you can have in South Florida. Better still when the team no longer sucks.

Here are the five reasons you should stop ignoring the Panthers and throw your full support behind them:

It was recently announced that retired Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldo would be part of the ownership group that purchased the Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

With his World Cup-winning pedigree and well-known grin, Ronaldo is expected to lend his name to the North American Soccer League and the Strikers, which is never a bad thing from a marketing standpoint.

But the 38-year-old apparently still has the itch to lace up the soccer boots and get out there and play, having recently expressed a desire to maybe suit up as a Striker and play for the team.

Like, for real.

Rob Konrad Says Shark Circled Him as He Swam Nine Miles to Shore

A visibly shaken and emotional Rob Konrad held a news conference in Palm Beach to recall his nearly 16-hour ordeal of being forced to swim nine miles to shore after he had fallen off his fishing boat.

Konrad, 38, was aboard his 36-foot boat last Wednesday when he tripped and fell overboard as the vessel, which was on autopilot, drifted away from him. Konrad was forced to swim to shore and had to be hospitalized for hypothermia when he arrived on shore early Thursday morning. The boat was on autopilot at 5 mph, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report.

Konrad, who was joined by his wife, Tammy, at the presser, had just been released from the hospital and recounted how he twice could have been spotted by the Coast Guard and another fisherman but was ultimately forced to have to get to shore on his own to survive.

Rob Konrad, a popular former fullback for the Miami Dolphins, reportedly fell off a boat during a fishing excursion, then managed to swim nine miles to shore off the coast of Palm Beach.

According to the Coast Guard, Konrad was out on the waters alone on Wednesday, fishing for about nine hours. Reports say the boat was on autopilot.

When Konrad fell into the ocean, the boat steered away from him, leaving him abandoned in the middle of the ocean.

He then swam back to shore. One report says it took him nine hours to do so.

After yet another mediocre season in which they missed the playoffs and lodged themselves firmly in the middle of the draft, the Miami Dolphins have gone ahead and hired Mike Tannenbaum to be their next head of football operations.

Who is Mike Tannenbaum, you ask? He once ran the New York Jets as their general manager until some questionable decisions and signings by him caught up with the team, and he was eventually fired.

Tannenbaum, who is also a sports agent, was then scooped up by the Dolphins to be a consultant. But now he's been given a promotion and tasked to turn the Fins around.

Jameis Winston's Crazy Fumble Hilariously Encapsulates FSU's Embarrassing Loss

jameis-winston-fumble.png
FSU's dreams of repeating as National Champions were rebuffed with extreme prejudice Thursday night after the Noles were demolished by Oregon in the Rose Bowl by the score of 59-20.

It was the end of what has been a tumultuous run by the Seminoles and their polarizing star QB Jameis Winston. While Oregon won big, FSU managed to keep things competitive in the first half of the game, turning in a feisty never-say-die fight as they have all season long.

But then things derailed horribly for FSU.

And perhaps no other play in the game encapsulated the Seminoles' undignified massacre at the hands of the Ducks as Winston's third quarter fumble that resulted in an Oregon recovery and 68-yard touchdown. It was a play that was equal parts hilarious, tragic, sad and riotous. And it took the Internet by storm.
