FBI agents have raided properties in northeast Indiana belonging to a former NFL lineman and his brother as part of an ongoing investigation by a task force that focuses on combatting illegal drugs and violent crime. Federal, state and local agents searched Fort Wayne property belonging to former New York Jets player Jason Fabini and a home owned by his brother, Michael Fabini. FBI Special Agent David Crawford on Friday would only say that there was ''investigative activity'' at those addresses and five others in the Fort Wayne area. Crawford says the raids were conducted by the Safe Streets Task Force, whose mission is to combat gun-, gang- and drug-related crime. He says the task force also investigates other types of crime.

Examining the Jets Offensive Line Over the Years

Florham Park, NJ - If you ever get a chance to walk into an NFL locker room you won't be able to avoid the sight of a few gigantic 300 pound plus offensive linemen, it'd be impossible not to notice them as they waddle around room. The irony of course is how often they go unnoticed on the field, yes they are still giants among the other players, but they stay packed in tight...

Jets Wanted Chad Henne, Not Tim Tebow, to Compete With Mark Sanchez for Quarterback Job

The quarterback controversy in New York appears to have no end in sight. And another wrinkle just made it even more complicated. Mark Sanchez is keeping his starting job, for now. But after being benched for third-stringer Greg McElroy last week, and chants for Tim Tebow continuing to fill the stands at MetLife Stadium, Sanchez may not have that job for very long. Now, as the Jets...
