Ryan Fitzpatrick

Ryan Fitzpatrick

— Ryan Fitzpatrick’s stalemate with the Jets has shown no signs of ending. If anything, recent signs appear to indicate the chasm is growing wider with the start of training camp just one week away.

The Jets’ most recent offer (at least via reports) was a three-year, $24 million deal, but with only one year at $12 million guaranteed, which is a concern for the 33-year-old Harvard product who is coming off his best season (passing for 3,905 yards and 31 touchdowns).

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, there have been no discussions for the last few weeks. Tweeted Fowler on Tuesday night: Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jets have time to close gap, but I’m told as of now both sides haven’t talked in over a month.

Meanwhile, wide receiver Brandon Marshall, one of Fitzpatrick’s biggest supporters, said over the weekend that Fitzpatrick has stopped returning his texts.

“I don’t know what’s going on. To be honest, me and Fitz talk every day, all the time, but I texted him the last two weeks three times and there’s no response,” Marshall said on Michael Rapaport’s “IAM RAPAPORT” podcast. “The only thing that he can do to make this right is to say he was on vacation, ‘I was out of the country.’ It’s not like him. It’s scaring me right now. It’s scaring me that my guy hasn’t texted me back.”

Lastly, according to, the lease on Fitzpatrick’s rented home in Chatham, New Jersey, has been made available ($9,500 per month for the eight-bedroom, nine-bathroom house). However, Fitzpatrick appears to still be living in the home for the time being.

— Browns running back Isaiah Crowell made amends for his recent anti-police social media post by attending the weekend funeral of one of the five police officers slain in Dallas.

Crowell — who had posted an illustration of a policeman having his throat slashed in response to the shootings of black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota (he quickly deleted the post but not before it made its way around the web) — accepted an invitation from Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation president Sgt. Demetrick Pennie to attend the funeral for Patrick Zamarripa on Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas.

Carmelo Anthony says ‘the front office stepped up,’ Knicks now a contender

Carmelo Anthony

Speaking publicly on Monday for the first time since Knicks president Phil Jackson made a series of roster moves, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony applauded the front office and was hopeful about the team’s chances of being a contender in the Eastern Conference.

“The front office stepped up,” said Anthony, an 11-time All-Star who has been a Knick since 2011. “It was a collective effort. They did their job and they did what they had to do to make some moves and make things happen. They put us in a situation to give us an opportunity. All we have to do is take advantage of that.”

“I think we have a good opportunity to do some things this year. It’s all about what we do. It’s all about us now. It’s all about how we come together, how we jell together. For the most part, the pieces are there, so it’s up to us.”

The Knicks, who have not had a winning season since they won 54 games in 2012-13, were able to trade for point guard Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls the night before the NBA draft. Jackson and the front office brass then had the cap space to sign Rose’s teammate Joakim Noah, swingman Courtney Lee and point guard Brandon Jennings.

Although Anthony believes the Knicks “have a very special team on paper,” there are plenty of red flags. Noah and Lee are 31 and 30, respectively. Jennings, once a top young star in the league, averaged seven points per game with Orlando last season. And Rose, the 2011 league MVP, is 27 years old and injury-prone. He has not played more than 70 games since that MVP year.

Despite the injury concerns with Rose, Anthony said he is not worried about the point guard’s health.

“As far as injuries go, it happens,” Anthony said. “But I think sometimes you just need a breath of fresh air, in Derrick’s case. I talked to him maybe once or twice, but he’s locked in right now. He’s focused. I’m hearing he’s healthy.

Tuesday’s Morning Mashup: ‘Truly sorry’ Johnny Manziel promises fans, ‘I’ll be back’

Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel

— Johnny Manziel finally responded to a wave of criticism for wasting his football potential, promising fans, “I’ll be back,” despite remaining unsigned since being cut by the Browns earlier this year.

The hard-partying Manziel, whose immature behavior and legal problems have overshadowed his performance on the field since he won the Heisman Trophy at Texas A&M as a redshirt freshman in 2012, sent a message to fans of his alma mater after someone posted a video of one of Manziel’s touchdowns from his final season at the school in 2013.

Wrote Manziel: chills* I love A&M with all my heart I’m truly sorry. I’ll do whatever I can to make it right.I’m an AGGIE for life.

Later Monday, Manziel put up a post on Instagram with the caption: You all write about a day in my life and what goes on…here it is. No secrets, no hiding, I”m not what you read about. I’ll be back… In time. It can’t end like this…it won’t. I love you all even though your comments suck.

Last month the NFL announced that Manziel was suspended four games, reportedly for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. The 23-year-old quarterback also is likely to face further discipline related to his domestic abuse case in Texas, for which he has been charged with misdemeanor assault.

Two agents have dropped Manziel since the season ended when he did not adhere to their demands that he seek treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. His family also expressed concern for his well-being.

— The former scouting director of the Cardinals apologized in federal court after being sentenced to 46 months in prison for hacking into the Astros’ player personnel database and email system in 2013.

Christopher Correa, who pleased guilty in January, also was ordered to pay $279,038 in restitution.

Solving ‘The Night Of': We Learn Who We’re Dealing with in ‘Subtle Beast’

It's all in the details. (Craig Blankenhorn/HBO)

It’s all in the details. (Craig Blankenhorn/HBO)

Over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2014, I — like just about every other person who measures time in new media sensations — discovered the “Serial” podcast.

“Serial” Season 1 focused on the murder of Hae Min Lee, an 18-year-old student at Woodlawn High School in Baltimore. Lee was last seen leaving school at 3PM on January 13, 1999.  Her body was discovered in a shallow grave in nearby Leakin Park two days later. The case was immediately treated as a homicide and eventually Lee’s ex-boyfriend, fellow student Adnan Syed, was arrested, charged, and eventually convicted of first-degree murder. For anyone reading a TV recap blog not familiar with this podcast, this probably seems like a huge spoiler, but it is not; these facts introduced to the listening audience almost immediately. The genius thing about “Serial” season 1 is that every episode was about the details surrounding the case, the “characters” involved, and questioning the “open-and-shutness” of a crime of passion.

The best episodes of “Serial” weren’t focused on forensics; the best episodes of “Serial” were focused on the personalities of those involved, the motivations for their actions in the turbulant aftermath of the murder and investigation and host Sarah Koenig’s constant questioning of the facts and her personal feelings to them. It sounds boring and was fascinating. “The Night Of” is the sequel to “Serial” we were all hoping Season 2 would be and wasn’t. Sorry, Sarah Koenig.

The reason I bring up “Serial” has less to do with the similarities between its main suspect, Adnan Syed, and the main suspect of “The Night Of”, Nasir Kahn, and more to do with the incredible detail being put into the character development of the main “players” in each story respectively. What we lacked in hardcore-network TV drama-style clue discovery goes above and beyond in the character development area, which reveals a ton about who we are dealing with in the wake of the murder of Andrea Cornish.

Questions Heading Into Episode 2:

  • What kind of kid is Naz?
  • What does John Stone see in Naz?  What drew him back to this kid?
  • Of all the detectives in NYC, why call Box?  What makes him so important?
  • What does the crime scene tell us about the killer and the crime?

Theory Heat Check

The Cat: The cat is more than likely a red herring.  The cat was a device to show:

  • Andrea left the back door open after she put the cat out.
  • Andrea putting out the cat was not shot from Andrea’s point of view; this could be a cinematic device showing that her putting out the cat and possibly leaving the door unlocked was seen by someone else/someone watching the house.
  • The cat showing up in Queens at Naz’s house is to show that the answer is closer than we think and that the answer is in what the cat saw. In other words, the truth will be revealed to the audience, not necessarily the characters.

You can check out the full notepad for both weeks HERE.  

Entitled “Subtle Beast,” the title of episode 2 beautifully describes the mutual admiration Jack Stone and Det. Dennis Box have for each other as they stalk patiently around Naz’s case just waiting for their moment to strike.  Jack admires the things Box has done in his career; Box admires what he seemingly knows Stone is capable of when properly motivated. Early on in the episode when speaking to his client, Stone reveals to Naz just who they are dealing with as Box’s reputation precedes himself:

“Box is the senior man here. He got that way by doing what he does well. He rolls up his sleeves, delegates nothing, takes all things personally. I’m not saying he’s a bad cop. On the contrary, he’s very good. And like all good cops, he does you over just inside the rules. He’s a talented oppressor. Subtle beast.”

We get to see how subtle Box is in virtually every single scene of this episode; it is genius-level procedural sleight of hand. Naz’s parents have no legal right to see him because he’s no longer a minor? That’s fine; Ol’ Box will just sneak your parents in to visit because they seem like nice people and casually get the conversation on video recording just in case Naz lets some details slip.

Can’t speak to the suspect without his lawyer present? It’s fine; Ol’ Box will just do some paperwork in the room the suspect, Naz, happens to be held.  

Can’t get Naz to spill any details about the night in question even though he literally handed him a lifeline in the form of an inhaler? That’s fine; let’s just ship you off to Riker’s Island in a Harvard tee-shirt; a nice subtle way to help a naive kid scared out of his mind stand out when all he wants to do is fade into the background.  

His actions aren’t vindictive, they’re just “Inception” level tactics of planting land mines that will eventually go off; they are ways to rattle the tree to see what falls out.  The dark eyes of the deer head in Andrea’s brownstone aren’t the only pair staring straight out in hopes of catching subtle details. This isn’t the first time Box has been in this situation.  

Standing across the ring from Box and pacing like a journeyman fighter who has made a career out of taking punches is Jack Stone.  While there is nothing subtle about his direct actions — verbally sparring with detectives in the bullpen, sitting beneath his own garish “NO FEE UNTIL YOU’RE FREE” signs on the subway, violently scratching his increasingly worsening eczema-ridden feet — he too is moving into the perfect position to strike. The audience is treated to a hint of just how sharp Stone is when crossing paths with Det. Box in the bullpen:


Box: I feel for him.

Stone: I’m sure you do.

Box: I do. I let him talk to his distraught parents.

Stone: Yeah? You tape it?

Box: This is a little out of your league, isn’t it, John?

Stone: [gesturing towards the vending machine] Bloomberg would have been appalled by the snacks here.

Box: You’re not gonna get rich off of it, if that’s what you’re thinking. It’s gonna be the shortest trial in history.

Stone: Yeah? Is that why you haven’t charged him? He doesn’t feel right for it, does he? Something in your gut isn’t liking him for this and you can’t bring yourself to pull the switch.

Granted, while you can expect David Price’s dialogue — which has made everything from movies like “Clockers” to television staples like “The Wire” to works of fiction like “Lush Life” explode off of their respective mediums — to pop like that, John Turturro’s delivery reminded me of a boxer just luring in his opponent so he can land some hurtin’ bombs right before the bell. Straight Rope-A-Dope style gamesmanship. Like his opponent, this isn’t Stone’s first match either.

Side Note: I want to see the backstories of both Jack Stone and Dennis Box and I want to see them now. I’m more interested in seeing their early tangles on the way up in the New York City justice department than I am seeing young Han Solo and young Boba Fett cross paths on various Kessel Runs.  

Ultimately, the most revealing parts of the episode had everything to do with the storytelling — not necessarily WHAT was said, but HOW it was said.  Every single character in tonight’s episode– with the exception of Naz and his family– approached the events of the worst night of this 23-year-old’s life as if they were as routine as getting a coffee on the way into the office.  

Det. Box has risen to his level of prestige because of his relentless pursuit of the truth;that pursuit takes time, patience, and repetition. Going through the motions of investigating this case is no different.  

Jack’s navigation of the legal system has been honed over years of battling in the courts on every case he can scare up — which by the looks of it are few and far between and not the most prestigious. He takes good news and bad news about his clients the same way: en route to another meeting trying to hustle for to be someone’s legal representation. That kind of numb perseverance takes a long time to craft.

We meet District Attorney Helen Weiss. She’s outside smoking a cigarette on the steps of a courthouse during jury deliberation, as she probably has every single day for her entire career. A person’s life hangs in the balance but it’s also hanging during my cigarette break — ho hum. Smoke ’em if you got ’em.  

We even learn the other men who are being transported to central booking before going to Riker’s Island — through ADR/off-screen dialogue — have all been there before. This overnight pitstop is just a part of the process.  

What is a journey through all pathways one can find themselves inside of a courtroom is presented as mundane: just your normal everyday inconvenience, except in this world the inconvenience is a first-degree murder charge.  

But not Naz. There has to be something to the fact that everything that happens to him is a surprise; absolutely nothing is routine for him here. He has spent zero time thinking about the future and all of his time trying to remember the past and what really happened the night of.  That has to mean something… right?

  • The hazy, fuzzy sounding dialogue in the opening, that’s new information; we have not heard this part of the conversation between Andrea and Naz previously. He’s remembering things.  
  • There is blood on the deer head. How did it get there? It can’t be from from Naz sprinting out of the house; that blood is on the railing. Perhaps from the knife game? Perhaps from Andrea and Naz hooking up mid-walk up the stairs?  
  • The forensic scientist at the scene of the crime mentions the cat to Det. Box. I’m telling you, the cat is more than a red herring — it’s Chekhov’s cat.  
  • There is a tremendous amount of blood splatter on the walls of Andrea’s room. There is no way Naz could have killed her based on the the splatter alone. Naz wouldn’t be absolutely covered in blood when he came to in the kitchen.  
  • Don Taylor (the stepdad) is no good. He is almost certainly hiding something or at the very least, he is withholding crucial pieces of evidence. This is explicitly shown when called to ID the body. As next of kin, it is his word that can put the part of the case to rest and he withholds it until he would have to be confronted with seeing the body itself. Even if he isn’t the killer (BUT HE DID JUST SHOOT THE TOP OF MY SUSPECTS LIST), he is a character whose very presence on screen is screaming out that he feels underappreciated for a bevy of reasons that double as motive.  
  • I’m not letting this cat thing go. 


Monday’s Morning Mashup: NFL reportedly finalizing plan to insert computer chips in footballs

— The NFL reportedly is close to finalizing a plan to insert computer chips into game balls used in the upcoming preseason and in Thursday night games. And no, this has nothing to do with Deflategate.

The chips could help determine where the ball should be placed when a ball carrier is ruled down. They also would provide data on how close kicked balls come to the uprights, helping the league determine how much of a difference it would make if the uprights were moved closer together.

There was a small reduction in conversion rates on extra points last season after the league pushed back the spot so that it’s a 33-yard kick. But field goal rates continue to be exceptionally high, with last season’s 84.5 percent rate the second highest in league history.

According to an ESPN report, the league sent chip-equipped footballs to some veteran quarterbacks for them to test out and ensure they did not feel or travel through the air differently than the current balls used in games. Then the league contacted all 32 teams to inform them of the plan to used the technology.

Thinking Out Loud: Tom Brady leaves Patriots fans feeling deflated

07.15.16 at 9:12 pm ET
By   |   Comments

Rooke_JohnThinking out loud … while wondering if Pikachu, Squirtle or Charizard might be lurking around the corner.

— Well, then. That’s it? What do we have to complain about now?

— Eighteen months after the torturous tale began, Tom Brady has decided not to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, effectively ending Deflategate. And my initial reaction is a deflated one, like the way I felt after watching “The Sopranos” finale. That’s it?

— All along, the smarter Kool-Aid drinkers (and I’m still one of them) believed TB12’s best chance at playing in September was through a stay granted by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg, if we are to believe in her precedents, generally has sided with labor over management in labor-related causes.

— However, the burden of proof was on Brady’s team to show this case traveled well beyond a simple football spat between a player and a commissioner. Ultimately, based on case precedent, the odds weren’t on TB12’s side. And we know how he loves to win. So let’s strike up the band and climb aboard the Jimmy Garoppolo bandwagon.

— Perhaps the recent public display of “dislike” for presidential candidate Donald Trump could have caused a problem with Justice Ginsburg’s consideration of TB12’s case – especially with Brady as a Trump “friend”? You’d like to think not. You’d like to think our Supreme Court justices can be impartial, even though they are human. But impartial enough to keep TB12 in the fight? Nope. You have to think his legal team suggested as much.

Tim Tebow among sports figures to speak at Republican National Convention next week

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow

At one point, there were rumors of Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger would be speaking at this year’s Republican National Convention.

There will be a quarterback there, but it’s not either of the aforementioned two.

It’s former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.

The Heisman Trophy winner, now an analyst on ESPN, has always been known for his ultra-conservative views. Now he is now scheduled to speak on night four of the convention, set to take place in Cleveland July 18-21, per a list released by the New York Times.

Tebow has not played an NFL game since 2012, and was released from the Eagles following the preseason on Sept. 5 of 2015, but that has not kept him out of the limelight. This could very well be a jumping off point of a different avenue for the 28-year-old, who has even toyed with the idea of a political career down the road.

In an interview on Fox and Friends on March 29, when asked about a political career, Tebow said: “It’s been crazy, hasn’t it? It’s been a whirlwind watching everything. You know, I don’t know in this time in my life, but if there’s a chance you can make a difference some day in something, then that would be intriguing.”

Other athletes set to speak include golfer Natalie Gulbis and UFC President Dana White.

Gulbis has been an outspoken supporter, most noticeably when she penned “The Donald Trump I Know, by Natalie Gulbis,” which ran on on June 2.

White, who was just involved in the record-breaking 4 million dollar sale of UFC, has adamantly supported Trump, starting with his appearance on TMZ Sports, where he says that he would, in fact, vote for Trump.

Joe Paterno knew of Jerry Sandusky sexual assault as early as 1976, according to newly unsealed records

A man claims he told former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno about a sexual assault on him committed by assistant coach Jerry Sandusky in 1976, but Paterno ignored his claims, according to newly unsealed court records.

The victim testified in court in 2014 that when he attended a football camp at Penn State as a 14-year-old, Sandusky touched him as he showered. Identified as John Doe 150 in court records, the victim said he specifically told Paterno of the sexual assault, but Paterno brushed him off and just walked away.

“I was shocked, disappointed, offended. I was insulted,” the man told lawyers for Penn State University’s insurer in a deposition two years ago. “I was embarrassed.”

The man would become one of many Sandusky accusers paid millions by Penn State. His testimony was recently released as part of records unsealed by Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Gary Glazer due to a current legal fight over who should cover the costs Penn State has paid.

In a statement on Tuesday, the family of Paterno denied that any coverup ever took place.

“With this latest release of information, the total mishandling of the Sandusky investigation is highlighted once again,” the statement said. “The overwhelming evidence confirms that Joe Paterno never engaged in a cover up of Jerry Sandusky’s crimes. Multiple independent parties have confirmed this conclusion.”

The records include pieces of depositions from accusers who say they reported sexual abuse by Sandusky to Paterno and other Penn State coaches in the 1970s and 1980s. Paterno denied any knowledge of sexual abuse by Sandusky before his death in 2012. Sandusky was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison in 2012.

The university hoped to keep the settlement records sealed, claiming that publicizing them would unfairly expose victims to ridicule and embarrassment, and that some information in the documents was privileged, gleaned through mediation sessions.

Minneapolis officers working WNBA game walk out over players’ warmups shirts

07.12.16 at 10:33 am ET
By   |   Comments

Four off-duty Minneapolis police officers who were supposed to work the Minnesota Lynx game walked away from their post Saturday night after players wore Black Live Matters warmup shirts before the game.

“I commend them for it,”president of the Minneapolis Police Federation Lt. Bob Kroll said. “Others said they heard about it and they were not going to work Lynx games.”

The Lynx players wore black shirts that read “Change Starts With Us — Justice and Accountability” on the front, while the back included the names Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, who both were killed by police in separate incidents in Baton Rogue and St. Paul last week. The back of the shirt also featured “Black Lives Matter” and a Dallas Police Department emblem to honor the five police officers killed in Dallas by a heavily armed sniper during a Black Lives Matter protest last Thursday.

“If we take this time to see that this is a human issue and speak out together, we can greatly decrease fear and create change,” the Lynx’s Maya Moore said before Saturday’s game. “Tonight we will be wearing shirts to honor and mourn the losses of precious American citizens and to plead for change in all of us.”

Kroll said that he did not know who the officers were, but that they removed their names from a list of officers working future Lynx games.

When asked if other officers will step in to work future games, Kroll said, “If [the players] are going to keep their stance, all officers may refuse to work there.”

By   |   Comments

Warriors forward and U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team member Draymond Green was arrested Sunday on a charge of misdemeanor assault and battery, according to court records.

The alleged incident happened in East Lansing, Michigan near the Michigan State campus that Green played college basketball from 2008-12. Green, 26, was arrested at 2:28 am on Sunday and released on $200 bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned on July 20.

According to East Lansing Lt. Scott Wrigglesworth, the alleged victim was an adult male outside of a popular bar who was taunting Green. The male was not injured.

“We are aware of news involving Draymond Green in Michigan over the weekend,” the Warriors said in a statement Monday. “At this point, we are collecting information and will have no further comment until we have a better understanding of the situation.”

Green faces a maximum of 93 days in prison or fine of up to $500, or both. He is coming off of a season in which he averaged 14 points and 9.5 rebounds for the Warriors and was named to the All-NBA Second Team and All-Defensive First Team. He is expected to attend Team USA’s camp from July 18-21.
