With a big lead in the process of slipping away in the second half against Minnesota, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo called guard Cassius Winston over to the sideline during a break for a quick message. "I told him it was time for him to take over." Izzo said. Winston listened. Over the next 1 1/2 minutes, Winston scored seven points and had two steals to extend Michigan State's lead from nine to 16 points. Winston just shrugged off the stretch. "That's my role for this team."

The Cowboys have agreed to a one-year deal with safety George Iloka, according to a source. Iloka met with the Cowboys on Friday and was the third safety to meet with the club during the week along with Clayton Geathers and Eric Berry. The Cowboys have concerns about their depth at the position that was manned by Jeff Heath and Xavier Woods last year. Iloka, who has nine career interceptions, can play both safety spots. The Cowboys had some interest in Iloka last year before he joined Minnesota, where he started three games. He is the fourth free agent the Cowboys have come to terms with so far, joining Christian Covington, Kerry Hyder and Randall Cobb.

The Seahawks have re-signed Neiko Thorpe, a backup cornerback and one of their top special-teams players for the past three seasons. Thorpe was a special-teams captain last year and finished third in snaps on that side of the ball despite missing four games. Thorpe's re-signing comes a day after Seattle lost one of its other top special-teamers, Maurice Alexander, to the Bills. It leaves Dion Jordan, Sebastian Janikowski and Tre Madden as the Seahawks' remaining unrestricted free agents.

Robert Kraft's attorney, William Burck, to ESPN: “There was no human trafficking and law enforcement knows it. The video and the traffic stop were illegal and law enforcement just doesn't want to admit it. The state attorney needs to step up and do the right thing and investigate how the evidence in this case was obtained.”
