Former Seahawks player Tarvaris Jackson arrested in Florida (The Associated Press)

Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested in central Florida after authorities say he pulled a gun on his wife. An Osceola County Sheriff’s Office arrest report says the 33-year-old Jackson had been visiting family in Kissimmee when the incident occurred early Friday. Jackson’s wife told the deputy that Jackson had returned to their rental home drunk and began yelling at her, eventually pulling the gun and threatening to kill her.

U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank gave Wells Fargo 30 days to remove elevated signs from the rooftops of two office towers near U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis, the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/28ORqi6 ) reported. Frank also ordered Wells Fargo to pay the Vikings’ legal fees, finding the San Francisco-based bank had breached a contract.

NBA draft picks in the NFL? It’s pretty rare, exclusive company (Shutdown Corner)

This offseason, Shutdown Corner will travel down memory lane with a series of stories presenting some interesting and sometimes forgotten stories from the NFL’s past. Join us as we relive some of the greatest and craziest moments in the sport’s history. There was a lot of talk amid the Cleveland Cavaliers’ run to an NBA title about LeBron James’ greatness, and it even leaked over into his athletic versatility — and just how good an NFL player the former high-school receiver might be. Fascinating discussion, but thankfully, James stuck with hoops. He’s pretty good at that. But with the NBA draft upon us , it brings up a really interesting fact as it relates to the NFL: There have been shockingly few crossovers in football and basketball, at least in the professional ranks. [ Yahoo Fantasy Football is open for the 2016 season. Sign up now ] Just recently, we had former NBA dunk champ Nate Robinson — the former Apple Cup hero who played cornerback at Washington — try out for the Seattle Seahawks, who are passing for now . Although Robinson claimed to want to be the first player to play in both sports, we believe he’s wrong on that fact.

Which championship-hungry team can be NFL’s Cleveland Cavaliers? (Shutdown Corner)

Half of the 32 NFL teams will have gone 25 seasons or more between championships by the end of this season, or never won one at all. Think about that for a minute. A league that prides itself on the idea that any team has a chance to win it all has produced only 11 different championship franchises in the past 20 Super Bowls and 14 in the past 30 years. But all bad things must end, as the city of Cleveland’s 52-year championship drought across all pro sports with the Cavaliers’ NBA title Sunday night proves. (We hope, anyway.) [ Yahoo Fantasy Football is open for the 2016 season. Sign up now ] With that in mind, here’s a ranking of NFL teams that have suffered the most and the longest by which ones actually have the best chance to end said drought with a Super Bowl championship. 1. Minnesota Vikings Last NFL championship: None Formed in 1961, the Vikings have reached four Super Bowls and won none. For these purposes, we don’t consider their 1969 NFL title prior to the AFL-NFL merger because the Vikings went on to lose SB IV to the Kansas City Chiefs the next game. But these Vikings appear to have something special brewing. There’s a young, impressive core on defense. The offense is still developing, but there’s a lot to like. The two factors to wonder about: Can Teddy Bridgewater take that next step? And can Adrian Peterson help deliver a title in his prime? As they get set to move into their impressive new stadium, Mike Zimmer’s Vikings have the look of a perennial contender for the next four or five seasons. Will there be a great team among those? It’s unclear but they’ll get ample opportunities to make runs before the end of the decade. 2. Arizona Cardinals Last NFL championship: 1947 season The Cardinals last won a title as residents of Chicago ( playing in Comiskey Park before a small crowd of just over 30,000 for the game), before enduring title-less streaks of 28 years in St. Louis and another 28 as the Phoenix/Arizona team. It’s the longest-running streak of any team that has won a title. But this team has come close a few times in the past eight seasons, losing a Super Bowl and losing the conference championship game last season to the Carolina Panthers. Now the Cardinals are set up to contend the next few seasons with a talented defense, an offense with enough playmakers and a head coach in Bruce Arians who will take the necessary dice rolls at key times to turn the odds in his favor. The biggest question is the length of the window. Does Carson Palmer have one or two years to make a run at a ring? Is Larry Fitzgerald looking at the same timetable? There’s no doubt they’re making a push for right now, but it might close quickly. 3. Oakland Raiders Last NFL championship: 1983 It’s wild to think that there are only four players on the Raiders’ roster now who were born the last time the Raiders won it all, back in Super Bowl XVIII in early 1984. That speaks to the youth on this roster, one that has added an incredible amount of talent the past three years to one that looked largely devoid of any not long ago.

NFL-National Football League roundup (Reuters)

Free agent cornerback Charles Tillman is hoping to return to the Carolina Panthers for a 14th NFL season. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Carolina is the only team Tillman wants to play for in 2016 once he is fully recovered from the torn ACL that cost him a chance to play in the Super Bowl last season. “I just want to play for Carolina,” Tillman said Saturday as he assisted former Chicago Bears teammate Matt Forte with his annual football camp in Slidell, La. Tillman helped the Panthers to a 15-1 regular-season record last year before the injury in Week 17 forced him out of the team’s run to the Super Bowl.

Vikings receiver from Germany trying to catch up quickly (The Associated Press)

When Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer canceled the last session of minicamp as a reward for the team’s offseason work, most players were surprised and delighted by the early start on summer vacation. Nobody on the 90-man roster needs more training than Boehringer, the rookie wide receiver from Germany who became the first draft pick in the history of the NFL to come directly from a country outside the United States. This is simply the situation he’s in, having discovered the sport about five years ago through YouTube videos of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.
