Boys basketball: Mendham senior Peter Butkus plays through blindness
Calvin Pryor's organized team activity boycott is over-- if it was even an OTA boycott. The safety is believed to be back in Florham Park and practicing with his teammates on the second day of Jets OTAs, a source told NJ Advance Media. Media are not in attendance for the workout. All OTA practices are voluntary. Pryor missed the first day of workouts Tuesday. Coach Todd Bowles wouldn't provide any details when asked why after practice, saying (seven times) "it's voluntary."
FLORHAM PARK -- The Jets' offensive coordinator vacancy wasn't exactly the most sought-after job this offseason. Combine the talent-deficient roster, potential lame-duck coach, and where-to-even-start quarterback position, and it's pretty clear why the top-tier names on the market went elsewhere. But not John Morton. The longtime assistant jumped at the chance to join Todd Bowles' staff. "Opportunity," Morton said Tuesday. "I've been a position coach for almost 19 years, and feel I'm ready."
FLORHAM PARK -- It's hard to paint these last two years as anything other than a disappointment for Sheldon Richardson. Among the most talented defensive ends in the league, self-inflicted wounds have kept the Jets' troubled star from succeeding on the field. Richardson now enters the final year of his rookie contract at a crossroads. He can dominate this season and earn a big-money contract as a free agent, or he can continue downward. The Jets hope he finds the right path.
