    Austin Seferian-Jenkins drops 25 pounds after Vegas training

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - He's been a disappointment on and off the field for most of the last two seasons, and he knows the Jets have tried their best to ship him somewhere else. Yet as the Jets begin preparing for the 2017 season, Sheldon Richardson is still on their roster. And the Jets believe -- or at least hope -- he's returning more motivated than ever before. "After just one day in OTAs, and watching him move around, this guy -- I shouldn't say (he has) a chip on his shoulder," said Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers. "I think he kind of has something to prove." That seems obvious given how the last two seasons have gone. He's been suspended twice -- four games in 2015 for violating the

    Jets' Morris Claiborne: 'I can be the No. 1 corner in this league if I'm healthy'

The biggest problem, of course, is that Claiborne has yet to stay healthy since the Cowboys made him the sixth-overall pick in 2012. He's appeared

    Why I'm a Patriots Fan: Dramatic Beginnings of a 32-year "Marriage"

    My Patriots fandom has a more complicated, twisted lineage than those for other sports. I'm a straight "Boston Guy" in my fandom (Providence College, my alma mater, excepted), but with the NFL, it wasn't always that way. I started following sports in the late 70s. The first time I seriously sat down to watch an NFL game was with my older cousin, on Thanksgiving, 1978. My cousin was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fans (of course!). He explained the basics of the game to me, but also pointed out that, as pro football teams go, the Dallas Cowboys were THE BEST and definitely the team to root for. So, I was hooked. The first NFL game I ever watched by myself, end-to-end, was the Cowboys' playoff loss to
