  Former Baylor basketball star Mark Vital signed to Seattle Seahawks' practice squad Mark Vital, the 6-5, 250-pound guard who won an NCAA title at Baylor, will get a look at tight end after not playing football since middle school. “I’ve worked out for a couple of teams and they liked the way I looked," Vital recently told KPLCTV.com. "They said I had great hands and I was fast and big. I can do a lot of things that can help teams. It’s a learning experience because it’s something different.” © Robert Scheer, IndyStar-USA TODAY Sports Baylor guard Mark Vital, right, blocks a shot by Gonzaga's Corey Kispert during the men's 2021 NCAA Tournament championship game April 5 in Indianapolis.

Ryan Santoso's time with the Carolina Panthers didn't last long.

The Panthers cut the kicker on Tuesday, less than three weeks after acquiring him in a trade with the New York Giants and just two days after his lone game with the team.

Santoso converted two field goals – a 29-yarder and a 22-yarder – but missed one of his two extra-point attempts in the Panthers' 19-14 win over the New York Jets.
