         Chiefs' Gonzalez saves man at restaurant

A California man says Pro Bowl tight end Tony Gonzalez of 
the Kansas City Chiefs kept him from choking to death. 
"Tony saved my life. There's no doubt," Ken Hunter, a ship-
ping company manager, said. Gonzalez, a nine-time Pro Bowl 
selection who has set numerous NFL records, was having 
dinner with his wife, brother and 5-week-old daughter at 
Capone's restaurant in Huntington Beach Thursday night. 
Hunter, 45, was dining with his girlfriend at the next 
table when suddenly a piece of meat stuck in his throat. 
The 6-foot-5 Gonzalez, about a foot taller than Hunter, 
jumped out of his chair and came up behind the stricken 
man and began to perform the Heimlich maneuver. "After just 
a few seconds, the piece of meat popped out," Hunter said. 
"I could breathe again. It's a good thing Tony is so tall 
because I had stood up - I think."

 Tatupu pleads guilty to DUI charge, sentenced to one day

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu pleaded guilty to a 
charge of driving under the influence on Monday. After his 
plea, Tatupu was sentenced by Kirkland Municipal Court Judge 
Michael Lambo to serve one day in jail and pay fines totaling 
$1,255. Tatupu was arrested May 10 in Kirkland after he was 
pulled over for speeding and driving erratically. At the 
police station two hours later, Tatupu registered 0.155 and 
0.158 in breath test readings, nearly twice the state intox-
ication threshold of 0.08. On March 25, the Seahawks signed 
the 25-year-old Tatupu to a six-year, $42 million contract 
extension.

         Seahawks sign two late-round draft picks

The Seattle Seahawks are nearly half way to signing all of 
their draft picks. The Seahawks have signed two more, 
agreeing to multiyear deals with long snapper Tyler Schmitt 
and kicker Brandon Coutu. The team announced the signings 
Wednesday afternoon. Schmitt was drafted in the sixth round 
out of San Diego State, while Coutu was taken out of Georgia 
with the first of Seattle's two seventh-round picks. Schmitt 
heads into training camp next month as the leader to be the 
Seahawks long snapper, while Coutu will compete with veteran 
Olindo Mare for the job of replacing kicker Josh Brown, who 
signed with St. Louis in the offseason. Coutu and Schmitt 
join running back Justin Forsett from California as signed 
draft picks.

Forte agrees to terms with Bears, only Williams sill unsigned 

The Chicago Bears agreed to terms on a four-year contact with 
RB Matt Forte. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Forte was 
selected by the Bears in the second round (44th overall) out 
of Tulane and is the 11th of 12 Bears drafts picks to sign or 
agree to terms. The only player who remains unsigned is first-
round pick Chris Williams. Forte is expected to replace Cedric 
Benson in the lineup. The Bears waived Benson in June after 
three ineffective, injury-plagued years following his second 
alcohol-related rest in a month. Unless the Bears sign a 
veteran, Forte figures to get most of the carries.
