Beckham to start MLS team in Miami
With his playing career over, David Beckham has decided his next move: starting a Major League Soccer team in Miami.
Since leaving the Galaxy in December, and retiring from the game after a subsequent five-month stint at Paris St.-Germain, Beckham has been mulling over the location for his MLS franchise.
Beckham has now made up his mind and he would pay a discounted rate of $25 million to start an MLS team in Miami, a person with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because plans for the team aren't being publicly discussed yet.
The option of becoming a team owner was included in the MLS contract Beckham signed when he joined the Galaxy in 2007.

Suspended Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson said he used "poor judgment on a test," which is what got him suspended for the fall semester.
