    San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday on felony domestic violence charges after officers responded to a home in an upscale neighborhood, San Jose police said.

Boone, represented by the agency of Schwartz & Feinsod, is expected to join the 49ers as soon as Monday as they prepare for their season opener at Dallas next Sunday. The person spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity because the team had yet to announce Boone's return.

    Marvin Austin: latest veteran bargain for Broncos (Yahoo Sports)

    John Elway's free agency bonanza included $109.5 million worth of contracts for a trio of defensive stars in Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward and DeMarcus Ware. So it was easy to overlook the one-year, no-bonus $570,000 deal that nose tackle Marvin Austin signed with the Denver Broncos this spring. The former second round pick of the New York Giants whose career has been bogged down by injuries made the Broncos' 53-man roster after a strong training camp six months after back surgery. Austin's re-emergence led Elway to release nine-year veteran Kevin Vickerson, who carried a $2.266 million cap figure.

Sam showed up for his face-to-face exit meeting with coach Jeff Fisher Sunday, a few hours after clearing waivers. Fisher said numerous times during his post cutdown-day news conference Saturday that releasing the SEC co-defensive player of the year was a ''football decision.''
