FOOTBALL: Former New England Patriots owner Victor Kiam filed a $450 million lawsuit against the NFL, saying it forced him to sell his team by denying his right to move it to Florida. The suit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, N.Y., said the NFL and its teams violated antitrust laws when they kept the Patriots "hostage" in Foxboro, Mass. The lawsuit says the NFL awarded a franchise to the owners of the Jacksonville Jaguars as a payback for their agreement to stop negotiating with Kiam to relocate the Patriots to Jacksonville, Fla.
