EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Calvin Johnson got the biggest contract in NFL history Wednesday, and he wasnt even a free agent. The All-Pro wide receivers eight-year deal through the 2019 season is worth $132 million, with $60 million guaranteed, surpassing the $120 million with $50 million guaranteed being paid to Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald. "They were happy to get this thing done with, and I was happy as well," Johnson said. "It wasnt a lot of confrontation. We werent butting heads or anything. It was just something that we knew needed to get done." Another All-Pro, guard Carl Nicks, left New Orleans for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a five-year contract. Considered one of the NFLs best pass blockers, Nicks is a two-time Pro Bowl player and was a key on the Saints record-setting offence. Former 1,000-yard rusher Peyton Hillis is getting a fresh start in Kansas City after a drama- and injury-filled second season in Cleveland after rushing for 1,177 yards in 2010. Terms of the deal werent immediately disclosed. Hillis won a nationwide fan vote to be the cover figure for "Madden NFL 12" last off-season, but then rushed for just 587 yards. Meanwhile, the wait for prized free agent defensive end Mario Williams to decide whether to sign with the Buffalo Bills will last yet another day. The Bills announced Wednesday night that Williams had left their facility and would return Thursday morning. That means the former Houston Texans star pass-rusher will sleep on making up his mind by spending a second night in Buffalo. In Detroit, Johnson lived up to his "Megatron" nickname with his spectacular receptions in 2011, catching 96 passes for 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns in leading the Lions back to the playoffs for the first time since 1999. Jerry Rice, Randy Moss and Johnson are the only players in NFL history with at least 95 receptions, 1,600 yards and 15 touchdowns in a season. "Calvins one of those guys -- weve said this about a few guys that we have in our building -- whatever they pay him is not enough," coach Jim Schwartz said. "Hes truly a special player." Tampa has been among the busiest teams in free agency, hardly surprising after the Bucs slumped from 10-6 to 4-12 last year. Nicks joined cornerback Eric Wright, who also signed Wednesday. Wright got a five-year deal, too. On Tuesday, the Buccaneers added star receiver Vincent Jackson for five years and $55.55 million. "Weve made our mark for what we wanted to accomplish," Bucs general manager Mark Dominik said. Jacksonville finally got going in free agency, agreeing to terms with receiver Laurent Robinson, defensive tackle C.J. Mosley and backup quarterback Chad Henne. The Jaguars also re-signed defensive end Jeremy Mincey, filling the teams most pressing needs on the second day of free agency. Robinson agreed to a five-year, $32.5 million contract that gives the team a No. 1 receiver. The deal includes $14 million guaranteed. Mincey signed a four-year contract worth $20 million. It includes $9 million guaranteed -- an $8 million signing bonus and a guaranteed salary of $1 million in 2012. Indianapolis made receiver Reggie Waynes return official, and also signed defence end Cory Redding to a contract. Wayne will get three years and $17.5 million in what likely is the last deal of his career. Hes likely to be the No. 1 target for Andrew Luck, who the Colts are expected to take with the top pick in the draft. Redding enters his 10th NFL season with a fourth team. He also has played for Detroit, Seattle and Baltimore. "Cory is a big and aggressive interior ... player who is an ideal fit in this defence," coach Chuck Pagano said. Philadelphia agreed on a five-year contract with wideout and kick returner DeSean Jackson, who was given a franchise tag and would have cost any team signing him two first-round draft picks. Jackson held out last training camp because he wanted an extension and then had a mediocre season. He even was inactive for a game for being late for a team meeting. But hes a game-breaker that coach Andy Reid wanted back. "He has the speed and ability to score from anywhere on the field, and he has proven himself to be a big threat for our offence," Reid said. Eagles defensive end Trent Cole, who had 11 sacks last season, agreed to a four-year extension with Philadelphia. Chicago agreed to a three-year deal with wide receiver Eric Weems, also a standout on special teams who could ease the kick returns burden on Devin Hester. The previous day, the Bears traded with Miami for wideout Brandon Marshall and signed quarterback Jason Campbell. Yet the Bears also brought back Josh McCown on a one-year deal. McCown joined Chicago late last season and appeared in three games, making two starts after Caleb Hanie struggled filling in for Jay Cutler. New St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher brought in one of his regulars when he was with the Titans, agreeing with cornerback Cortland Finnegan on a five-year contract. Finnegan was an All-Pro in 2008 and is known for his physical style. He got into a punching match with Texans star receiver Andre Johnson during a game in 2010 and both were fined $25,000. "Obviously, Ive had a relationship with him, know him very well and I know hes going to fit in and be a very fine player for us. Were very, very excited about that," Fisher said. "Hes a complete corner in that hes got great cover skills, hes a run support corner. Hes got flexibility to move inside. Theres always potential to match him up with a top receiver on a game-to-game basis." Finnegan will get $50 million, $27 million guaranteed and $33 million in the first three years. He also can earn and additional $1 million with incentives. Another Tennessee player, defensive end Jason Jones, was visiting Rams Park on Wednesday. Pro Bowl cornerback Carlos Rogers will get $31.3 million over four years to remain with the 49ers, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press. Rogers had six interceptions last season and his return would mean all 11 starters from San Franciscos strong defence will be back for the upcoming season. The Peyton Manning courtship continued, with the Titans taking their turn at wooing the four-time MVP quarterback who was released earlier this month by Indianapolis. Coach Mike Munchak, general manager Ruston Webster and owner Bud Adams top executive in Tennessee took off in the teams private plane to Raleigh-Durham, N.C., picked up Manning and returned to meet in Nashville. The quarterbacks suitors already include Denver, Arizona and Miami. Dallas landed its backup to Tony Romo when it agreed on a three-year deal with Kyle Orton, who has been a starter in Chicago, Denver and Kansas City. Jon Kitna, Romos backup the last two years, retired after last season. Derek Anderson said he has agreed to remain in Carolina as Cam Newtons backup. He did not throw a pass last season. Green Bays Matt Flynn -- considered the top available QB behind Manning -- had a scheduled visit to Seattle. The Cowboys bolstered their secondary with Brandon Carr, who was a starting cornerback for Kansas City and will replace Terence Newman, released this week by Dallas. Carr got a five-year deal. The Chargers re-signed left tackle Jared Gaither to a four-year contract and signed former Ravens linebacker Jarret Johnson to a four-year deal. Gaither helped solidify the Chargers line during the last five games after he was waived by Kansas City. He replaces Marcus McNeill, who was released Tuesday. San Diego also agreed to a one-year deal with tight end Kory Sperry, whose contract had expired. The Super Bowl champion Giants signed tight end Martellus Bennett to a deal. They lost starter Jake Ballard and backup Travis Beckum to major knee injuries in the Super Bowl win over the Patriots. Bennett has played behind Jason Witten in Dallas. The Jets re-signed kicker Nick Folk, who spent the last two years with the team, and cut safety Gerald Alexander. Oakland cut two more players as part of an off-season overhaul: right guard Cooper Carlisle and defensive tackle John Henderson. The Raiders are now about $10 million under the salary cap. Cleveland released veteran offensive guard Eric Steinbach, once a major acquisition who missed last season following back surgery and was due to make $6 million this season. Tight end John Carlson signed a five-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, bringing him to the team he grew up cheering for as a kid in Litchfield, which is about 90 minutes west of the Twin Cities. A person familiar with the negotiations told the AP that nose tackle Paul Soliai signed a $12 million, two-year contract to remain with the Miami Dolphins. The deal includes $6 million guaranteed. wholesale jerseys

Not even against one of the NBAs worst teams. Atlanta lost a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter before coming back to hit six free throws in the final 40 seconds and secure a 112-109 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. Paul Millsap had 24 points and Jeff Teague added 23 to help the Hawks earn just their seventh road victory of the season. "I wish they could put a leadership column on the stat sheet. Tonight when we got down, Paul was the one that pulled them together," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "All the other stuff is great ... but I think its his leadership, and I think our group needs that going forward." Seven players finished in double-figures for Atlanta, which has won two straight and has a day off before hosting San Antonio on Friday. Millsap stayed confident despite losing the big lead, that it wasnt going to be their latest road shortcoming. "We were falling apart a little bit," he said. "They made a nice little run. We didnt want to just call it quits then. So we had to regroup, get back on the right track." Victor Oladipo led Orlando with 24 points. Tobias Harris had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Jameer Nelson finished with 17 points. For the Magic, the loss was the latest setback for a team that was hoping to build on a win over Boston on Sunday that snapped a 10-game losing streak. Theyve now started another streak with back-to-back losses to Brooklyn on Tuesday and the Hawks. The Magic have lost 12 of their last 13 overall, and fell to 1-14 this season without starting centre Nik Vucevic, who continues to recover from a concussion. "Its tough for us to make shots down the stretch," Harris said. "We had some good opportunities, we just couldnt convert." The Hawks entered the game just 6-13 on the road, an issue that coach Mike Budenholzer said could be solved by showing more attention to detail and mental toughness. They would need those attributes late against the Magic. The Magic fell behind by as many as 11 in the first half, before trimming the Hawks lead down to 60-59 in the opening minutes of the third quarter.dddddddddddd. Atlanta responded by hitting nine of its first 16 shots in the quarter to ignite a 22-4 run that opened up a 19-point lead at 82-63. But Orlando closed the quarter with its own 17-6 spurt and trailed by eight entering the final period. The Magics momentum continued in the fourth, and they took their first lead of the game, 93-92, on a dunk by Kyle OQuinn. They were leading 98-92 when they lost Doron Lamb, who fouled out after scoring seven quick points in the quarter. With Lamb gone, Orlando got a little sloppy offensively and the Hawks closed to 102-100 on Shelvin Macks layup with 3:47 to play. After a pair of lead changes Atlanta went back in front, 110-109, on a pair of free throws by Pero Antic with 22.8 seconds to play. Orlando got Glen Davis free for a short jumper that bounced off the back of the rim. Antic got the rebound, was fouled, and hit two more at the foul line with just 11.1 seconds left. The Hawks never trailed in the first half and took a 60-56 lead into halftime. Both teams shot above 50 per cent in the half, but the Hawks held a 36-24 edge on scoring in the paint. Millsap led all scorers with 14 first-half points. Teague said Millsap continues to carry the Hawks since Al Horford was sidelined for the season with a torn right pectoral muscle. "He does that every night, Do-It-All-Paul," Teague said. "Hes been the ultimate player for us this year, and he did it again tonight. If he doesnt make (the All-Star team) it would be highway robbery, I think." NOTES: Atlantas Kyle Korver extended his NBA record to 110 consecutive games with at least one made 3-pointer. ... Orlando fell to 1-24 when its opponent scores 100 or more points. ... Vucevic missed his ninth straight game due to a concussion. Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said he isnt sure where Vucevic is in the leagues concussion protocol, saying only that "Hes still in the doctors hands." ' ' '
