In the latest effort to turn around the Cleveland Browns, Coach Eric Mangini looked to none other than NBA superstar LeBron James. "I think he should come on down," Mangini told reporters. "I know he's pretty busy right now, but if he wants to give it a shot, the guy is gifted. He's competitive and tough. I'm sure whatever he applied himself to, he'd probably be good in baseball or soccer or swimming." The invitation came after James, a high school standout in both basketball and football, told the Associated Press on Tuesday he could turn around the struggling franchise.

Running back Brian Westbrook will sit out his second game in three weeks when the Philadelphia Eagles play the 49ers on Sunday at San Francisco.

Brady Quinn, benched by Cleveland Browns Coach Eric Mangini 2 1/2 games into the season, will start Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens, the team the former Notre Dame star was facing Sept. 27 when he was yanked at halftime. "I'm excited to play," he said. "I'm excited to be part of Monday night." Mangini's decision to switch back from Derek Anderson to Quinn wasn't met with overwhelming support in Cleveland's locker room. Several Browns players interviewed Wednesday said they were unaware of Quinn's return to the top of the depth chart.

Junior Seau returned to the NFL on Friday after a four-day retirement, trading surfing in San Diego for a one-year contract with the New England Patriots that the 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker hopes will pay off with a long-sought Super Bowl ring. "I'm going after my master's now," the jet-lagged Seau said in a conference call. That was a reference to his lavish retirement ceremony Monday at the San Diego Chargers' headquarters when he said: "I'm not retiring. I am graduating."

Matt Hasselbeck threw for 216 yards and two touchdowns with newly signed Edgerrin James watching on the sideline, leading the Seattle Seahawks to a 14-10 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday night in Kansas City, Mo., in a game in which the Chiefs lost quarterback Matt Cassel to a leg injury. James, the NFL's active rushing leader, signed with Seattle on Tuesday but spent the game in sweats, pen and notepad in hand. Hasselbeck put on a good show for his new teammate, leading the Seahawks on scoring drives to end the first half and open the second.

Mike Martz, the headstrong coach who took St. Louis to the 2002 Super Bowl, was fired Tuesday after one season as the San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator. San Francisco Coach Mike Singletary announced Martz's third firing in less than three calendar years after an afternoon meeting with the veteran offensive mastermind. This parting had long been expected, and it wasn't nearly as acrimonious as Martz's last two dismissals in St. Louis and Detroit.

Brett Favre turned up the heat on the Green Bay Packers on Friday, telling them he plans to show up Sunday for the start of training camp, according to an NFL Network report. Poker, anyone? The Packers, who have made it clear they're moving forward with Aaron Rodgers as their quarterback, have compiled a list of teams that might trade for Favre. In a recent interview with Greta Van Susteren, Favre essentially called Packers General Manager Ted Thompson a liar and indicated he cannot trust him.
