Carmelo Anthony said he wants to stay in New York, and said he wants to win. It will be up to Phil Jackson to convince him that he can do both.
Chris Johnson is looking to quickly prove his critics wrong. The Jets signed the former Titans running back Wednesday, a little over a week after he was officially released by Tennessee.
There’s a new quarterback in town — even if it’s just for a few months. Freeman has agreed to a deal with the Giants, the QB’s agent confirmed via Twitter on Wednesday.
Melo will miss the final two games with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, ending his first playoff-less season and potentially his Knicks career.
The free-agent running back attended the Knicks-Nets basketball game in Brooklyn on Tuesday night, and told reporters that he had a productive visit with Gang Green.
Is New York about to add a big-name rusher? Johnson was reportedly seen at the Jets’ training facility Tuesday, one day after taking a physical with the team.
Patterson spent last season with the Giants after eight years in Philadelphia. He played in all 16 games for the first time since 2009 and made 35 tackles (22 solo).
In other words, the free-agent QB won’t be immediately typecast as a backup. But he shouldn’t expect to be handed the starting job, either.
At this point, with little left on the open market, Jets GM John Idzik looks like a hitchhiker on a lonely road; his thumb out, looking for a ride.
Who would have thought GM John Idzik would be so polarizing? Who does he think he is — Tim Tebow?
The Jets have re-signed veteran linebacker Calvin Pace to a two-year deal, bringing back one of their sacks leaders from last season.
Henry Hynoski became an unrestricted free agent recently after the Giants refused to tender him a contract. He spoke with the Lions on Wednesday before rejoining Big Blue.
Big Blue did the smart thing money-wise. Probably football-wise, too. But in terms of leadership, they left themselves with a gigantic hole.
If you thought Revis landing with Bill Belichick and the rival Patriots was bad, that’s nothing compared to what could end up being a long-term nightmare.
The Jets agreed to terms on Wednesday with the former Broncos wide receiver, considered by many the top free agent at his position after two seasons catching passes from Peyton Manning.
