AUTO RACING

NASCAR: Fox Sports analyst Darrell Waltrip, 72, will retire at the end of the network’s portion of the NASCAR schedule following the June 23 race at Sonoma Raceway in California.

The Hall of Fame driver has been working for Fox Sports since 2001.

FOOTBALL

NFL: The Seattle Seahawks have added depth to their pass rush by signing free agents Cassius Marsh and Nate Orchard.

Marsh was a fourth-round pick by the Seahawks in 2014 and played his first three seasons in Seattle. He split the 2017 season between New England and San Francisco and played last season with the 49ers.

Orchard was a second-round pick by Cleveland in 2015 but has yet to live up to his high draft selection.

• The Minnesota Vikings signed guard Dakota Dozier, adding more depth at a position in flux.

The 6-foot-4, 313-pound Dozier started two games last season for the Jets, playing under current Vikings offensive line coach and running game coordinator Rick Dennison. He could compete with Danny Isidora and Brett Jones for the left guard spot.
