NFL Injury Report:
Free-agent outside linebacker Bryan Thomas was the longest-tenured New York Jets player last season, having appeared in 157 games over 11 seasons.
Yet, Thomas now 33 is contemplating retirement after doctors found a torn tendon in his shoulder when they operated on a pectoral muscle injury six weeks ago. As Thomas explained to the New York Daily News:
“I haven’t even thought about it, to be honest with you, If I go now and sign for the vet minimum for one year, I wouldn’t even pass the physical right now.”
A part-time player in 2012, Thomas will have trouble drawing interest from teams on a one-year contract since he won't be able to participate in spring practices.

Jets Are Rebuilding, Right?
The John Idzik Jets are making changes. Lots of them. Personnel wise and schematically on offense. Can anyone honestly make a case for the notion that this...
Believe it or not Tebow is still a member of the Jets. At least for right now they have no plans on releasing or trading him, but no matter what they say, he isn’t in the mix to be the starting quarterback.
He has a lot of post career options, he will make a ton of money (already has) from speaking engagements, but maybe he can make a few more dollars acting.
Producer David Dginguerian...
It was a season to forget for both Tim Tebow and the New York Jets. Now it seems as if their unhappy marriage will be over sooner rather than later.
It’s appearing more and more likely that the Patriots will only have to face Darrelle Revis once this year.
The Jets cornerback is expected to be traded to the Buccaneers for two “high draft choices,” according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated. New England plays the Bucs at Tampa Bay next season.
The Jets owe Revis $6 million in 2013. Trading Revis won’t save them any...
If the whole NFL quarterback thing doesn’t work out for Tim Tebow, he has an offer for a second career.
The Jets quarterback has been offered a starring role in a faith-based film by executive producer David Dginguerian. Dginguerian produced the 2012 religious film Crossroad (not to be confused with Crossroads, the 2002 film starring Britney Spears).
“I would like to extend...
The New York Jets are so far away from the Super Bowl this season, even Rex Ryan is afraid to talk about it. He won’t admit he is in a rebuilding year though, but I’m okay with that. That’s only because the Jets aren’t trying to rebuild. They just seem to be content falling apart. Even the “strongest” part of their game, played by the running back, is completely missing...
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Wichita State University's men's basketball team got an unexpected new fan when they arrived home after their latest NCAA tournament victory.
A plane carrying New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was refueling in Wichita when the Shockers' bus arrived Sunday after their upset win over top-seeded Gonzaga. Tebow's representative asked coach Gregg...
