Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, in a sit down with the beat writers, said it was a "big relief" to get Ryan Fitzpatrick signed. He wouldn't get into the specifics of the negotiations. He said Mo Wilkerson's contract won't preclude them from signing Sheldon Richardson, who is signed through 2017. Maccagnan praised Geno Smith, all but assuring him a spot on the 53. He said they're open to keeping four quarterbacks.

Amar'e Stoudemire will discuss ending his NBA career and the next chapter in his life at a press conference on Monday at Madison Square Garden. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Stoudemire works for the Knicks in some capacity. Stoudemire had a great relationship with Knicks owner James Dolan.

Jets coach Todd Bowles was vague when asked about a return date for CB Darrelle Revis, who had wrist surgery in March and isn't practicing. Revis, too, declined to give a timetable. Bowles said he expects Revis to be ready for the season opener.

Although Zack Wheeler had tentatively been expected to face batters this week for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery, that did not occur. Manager Terry Collins said there has been no setback with Wheeler. Regardless, it looks like Wheeler will be back no earlier than September -- if then. Once Wheeler throws batting practice for the first time, he still is about 10 days away from a minor-league rehab assignment that could last for as long as a month. Logan Verrett has capably stepped into the rotation spot formerly occupied by Matt Harvey as the Mets bide time for Wheeler to return.

The Giants signed DTs Jermelle Cudjo and Davon Coleman. They waive WR Donte Foster and DT Melvin Lewis. Lewis was on NFI. Move was necessary with DTs Damon Harrison and Jay Bromley not practicing and on PUP.

New York's dangerous red zone duo

Last year was no fluke for Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Per Bill Barnwell, both players rank in the top 10 in red zone route-to-TD ratio over the last decade. Red zone analysis

In promoting the lefty-hitting Brandon Nimmo, the Mets concluded they did not have an attractive righty-hitting option who could play center field. They considered promoting 27-year-old Travis Taijeron, who is hitting .297 with 15 homers and 73 RBIs in 347 at-bats with Las Vegas. But they were dissuaded because Taijeron has 122 strikeouts -- the third-highest total in the Pacific Coast League -- and might have difficulty making contact at the major league level.
