Sports briefs: Biggio to hang 'em up

Craig Biggio, who began his career with the Houston Astros as a standout catcher beforemoving to second base, the outfield and back to second, will retire after 20 years. Biggio last month became the 27th player in history to get 3,000 hits. “For me to be able to walk away now, on top, on my own accord, I’m very happy with that,” Biggio said.

Falcons want to suspend Vick

Saying “This sort of behavior is really horrific. This is certainly not the player or the person that I knew the last six years,” Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said the team has considered releasing quarterback Michael Vick for his alleged involvement in an illegal dogfighting operation.
