Punter Lac Edwards, drafted by the Jets in the seventh round, grew up in Australia. After high school, he took a year off from school, worked for a brick layer and played Australian football. He punted an American football for the first time in 2012. He put together a highlight film, sent it to American universities and landed at Sam Houston State.

The Yankees got some "tough love" from manager Joe Girardi after Friday night's 4-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. According to a source, Girardi addressed his team in a voice loud enough to be heard outside the steel door of the Fenway Park visitors clubhouse. Girardi's agitation with his team, which has lost 3 in a row, 7 of their last 10 and sits in last place in the AL East with an 8-13 record, was confirmed by a player and a coach, neither of whom would speak on the record. Asked for specifics, one of the clubhouse sources shrugged and said, "We've been losing." Girardi refused to confirm he had spoken angrily to his team but when asked if he uses the tough love approach said, "I've given them plenty of that."

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, explaining why he traded a 2017 fourth-round pick to take OT Brandon Shell in the fifth, said he was willing to part with the pick because he expects compensatory picks in '17. That softens the blow. He said they liked Shell so much they almost picked him in the fourth. "We thought the player has a lot of ability and potential," he said.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo says fifth-round RB Paul Perkins is a complete back. "The two most important things for a running back: No. 1, protect the call. No. 2, protect the quarterback. And he certainly fits that role."

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Jerry Reese says Jerell Adams is a "better blocker than a receiver" at this time.
