Sports briefs: Former Raider indicted

Sean Jones, a former defensive lineman who played for the Raiders and Houston Oilers and won a Super Bowl ring with the Green Bay Packers, pleaded not guilty to bank fraud charges alleging he and four others ran a scheme to pocket portions of more than $42 million in mortgage loans. Jones has been plagued with legal and financial problems in recent years.

Love him or hate him, Barry Bonds could appear on your TV sets more often than anticipated. Fox and ESPN are discussing the possibility of expanding coverage of the Giants’ slugger as he approaches Hank Aaron’s home run mark of 755, anticipating viewers will tune in — out of admiration, curiosity or contempt. “First we have to decide, when can we break in and begin to do live cut-ins of his at-bats, and that’s being negotiated now,” said Len DeLuca, ESPN’s senior vice president for programming and acquisitions. “Is it within two? Within three? Within five? Where does it become reasonable?”
