New York Jets
Running back Joe McKnight, who has had a tumultuous summer, and veteran guard Stephen Peterman are among the first roster cuts by the New York Jets.
McKnight, the team's primary kick returner the past two seasons, was let go Monday after a series of incidents that included a concussion, an arrest for unpaid traffic warrants and tension with the media.
Peterman, signed in the offseason, appeared in line to start at left guard but the improved play of Vladimir Ducasse and rookie Brian Winters made him expendable.
Also cut are running back Chad Spann, offensive linemen Patrick Ford and Trey Gilleo, wide receivers Joe Collins, Marcus Rucker, K.J. Stroud and Rahsaan Vaughn, linebacker Sean Progar-Jackson, defensive backs Donnie Fletcher and Bret Lockett, punter Ryan Quigley and long snapper Patrick Scales.

DO IT LIKE ORLOVSKY
New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has had an absolutely terrible night in his first NFL start. He currently has three interceptions and just did his best Dan Orlovsky impression, running out of the back of the end zone while trying to avoid a sack. The only person happy to see all of this transpire has to be Mark Sanchez.

New York is the best place in North America to be great at sports. When quarterback Mark Sanchez was leading the New York Jets to back to back AFC Championship games he was the toast of the town yielding all kinds of perks, like dating supermodel Kate Upton. But with that success came even higher expectations and as Sanchez, and the team, failed to...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, dealing with a shoulder injury, is at practice riding a stationary bike but unlikely to participate in any throwing drills.
During the 30-minute window that reporters are allowed to watch, Sanchez was among a group off to the side of the practice field and had his right arm at his side as he pedaled.
The Jets announced Sunday that Sanchez...
New York Jets running back Mike Goodson says his arrest in May was ''embarrassing,'' and he was ''disappointed'' in himself.
Goodson has returned to the team after being away during training camp for undisclosed personal reasons. He was suspended by the NFL on Monday for the first four games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse...
New York Jets running back Mike Goodson has returned to the team, and he also found a four game suspension sitting in his locker when he arrived.
Goodson was hammered by the NFL for violating the leagues substance abuse policy according to Pro Football Talk.
Goodson who signed with the Jets during the off-season, had missed training camp and the Jets’ first three preseason games...
The New York Jets are a complete circus from the front office, down to coach Rex Ryan, down to the quarterback competition between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith. We get it, New York City never sleeps and the media there is brutal. However, you know things are getting downright ridiculous when New Jersey Governor and die-hard Jets fan Chris Christie took to radio to bash Jets beat writer...
Rex Ryan has taken heat following Saturday night, for sending Mark Sanchez in the game during the fourth quarter of the 'MetLife Bowl', to play with backups. Sanchez injured his right shoulder joint, as a result of a blow.
In the press conference, following the game, Ryan got slightly aggravated (somewhat reasonably so) due to repeated questions from NYDN's Manish...
We sent Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio to last night’s game thanks to the MetLife Foundation and their Road To MetLife Stadium experience. Here are five things he thinks after attending…
1. I think that Giants fans were generally very respectful. I wore a Jets hat and had a Giants fan tell me that i’m too good for the Jets, which was pretty hilarious. I cheered loudly for Geno...
Wide receiver Braylon Edwards has been released by the Jets.Fantasy Spin:Edwards hasn't held much fantasy value since his first stint with the Jets back in 2010. Santonio Holmes (if healthy) and Stephen Hill figure get most of the targets, but Edwards could have been a nice option near the goal line.
The NFL has slapped Jets halfback Mike Goodson with a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.Fantasy Spin:He's been absent for all of training camp though ESPN's Adam Schefter is hearing that Goodson will arrive at Jets camp sometime within the next 24 hours. Goodson racked up 221 yards on just 35 carries last year with Oakland. He'...

The Jets' quarterback picture got even murkier despite winning the annual bragging rights game with the Giants.
Billy Cundiff kicked a 32-yard field goal with 8:04 left in overtime and the Jets defeated the Giants 24-21 Saturday night. It's the only time the rivals will play this year unless they qualify for the cold-weather Super Bowl here in February. The way the Jets...
Talk about “Rome is Burning”.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan’s white-hot coaching seat just reached ‘scorcher’ level after his bonehead decision to play quarterback Mark Sanchez against rival NY Giants Saturday night.
The only amiable way both the Jets and its fan base can come to a mendable conclusion is for the team to fire Ryan.
Rex’s choice to insert the all-but...
The New York Jets and David Harris were able to escape with a victory against the New York Giants but more important positives could be taken from the game. A long touchdown run only inspired greater play from a potentially powerful defense.
