Authorities say New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft visited a Florida massage parlor for sex acts on the morning of the AFC Championship Game, which he attended in Kansas City later that day. According to documents released by the Palm Beach State Attorney’s Office on Monday, it was the second visit by Kraft to the parlor in less than 24 hours. The documents say Kraft arrived at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in a chauffeured 2015 blue Bentley at 11:00 am. on Jan. 20. He was videotaped receiving sex from a woman at the spa in Jupiter. Officials say he gave her a $100 bill and another bill before leaving at 11:15 am.

The Baltimore Ravens informed Michael Crabtree that they are releasing the veteran wide receiver after one disappointing season. Crabtree, 31, was scheduled to receive a $2.5-million roster bonus next month and earn $7.5-million in 2019 after leading the NFL with eight dropped passes last season. Baltimore will free up $4.667 million in salary-cap room by parting ways with Crabtree.
