Jets' McElroy rips 'selfish' teammates

The latest highlight of the meltdown that is the New York Jets came Wednesday when rookie quarterback Greg McElroy went on an Alabama sports radio station to rip the chemistry he witnessed in the locker room, especially toward the end of the season, which ended Sunday as the Jets missed the playoffs.

“It’s definitely not a fun place to be, I can assure you,” McElroy said on 97.3 "The Zone" in Birmingham, Ala. “It’s the first time I’ve ever been around extremely selfish individuals. And I think that’s maybe the nature of the NFL. But there were people within our locker room that didn’t care whether we won or lost as long as they got theirs, they had a good game individually. And that’s the disappointing thing.”

McElroy, a seventh-round pick out of Alabama, dislocated his throwing thumb in the preseason and watched the locker room implode as a member of the team's injured reserve....

Pats practice: Brady, Welker, 3 others miss

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady and Wes Welker were among the five players not spotted on the main Gillette Stadium field Wednesday as the Patriots returned to practice in sweats and shells, the first workout of their bye week. 

Logan Mankins (left knee), Sebastian Vollmer (foot/back) and Marcus Cannon - all offensive linemen - were the three other players not in attendance for the start of a frigid practice. 

Brady is nursing a sore left shoulder after taking a big hit during the Dolphins game on Christmas Eve while Welker took a viscious hit to the ribs in the second half of Sunday's game against the Bills. 

Mankins injured his left knee against the Dolphins on Christmas Eve while Vollmer hasn't practiced or played since injuring his right foot against the Eagles on Nov. 27. The Patriots have planned practices Wednesday and Thursday, with Friday's schedule still to be determined. The team is expected to get Saturday and Sunday...

Bailey on M&M: 'Stoked' to be joining Sox

During a call with the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday, new Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey talked about how excited he is to be joining the Red Sox and getting the opportunity to play in front of a passionate fan base.

Bailey said he wasn't surprised to be traded after hearing rumors since the end of the season and seeing teammates get shipped off by the cost-conscious A's.

"I was very excited when I found out I was a Red Sox, because I love the organization, I love the team," he said. "Obviously, they're always in contention and we're ready to do big things this year. … I was very, very stoked when I heard it was the Red Sox."

Added Bailey: "I came up in the A's organization, I was drafted by the A's and they'll always be my first team and I'll always have a tie there. But your window as a player to win a World Series is only so big. I'm fortunate enough now to be part of an organization that has that chance...

Esiason on D&C: Steelers a 'layup' in Denver

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about the Patriots, the NFL playoffs and the dysfunctional Jets.

Esiason predicts the Steelers will handle the Broncos, and the Texans will get past the Bengals this weekend, setting up a visit from the Steelers to Foxboro the following weekend.

"To me, [the Steelers have] the layup this week," he said. "They've got Tim Tebow, who obviously is in way over his head. Everybody knows that. It's been a nice story. But 6-of-22 [in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Chiefs], the last three weeks he's been terrible. This is a layup for the Pittsburgh Steelers, even without Ryan Clark."

Asked what can go wrong for the Patriots this postseason, Esiason said: "Pittsburgh can go wrong for them. They are a damn good defense. And you know that. Nothing's changed for them. It's the same thing over the last 20 years. They're always going to...

Mashup: NFL, Jets investigate Scott's antics

On Tuesday we told you about the Jets' messy breakup day Monday, which included linebacker Bart Scott flipping off a photographer (who snapped a photo of the obscene gesture). The NFL was not pleased, and a league spokesman said there will be an investigation. The team also expressed disappointment.

"What he did was unacceptable," Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum told ESPN Radio. "We're going to address it. We'll certainly talk to him."

Coach Rex Ryan -- who himself was fined $50,000 by the Jets for giving the middle finger to fans in 2010 -- added that Scott's behavior was "not acceptable in dealing with the media."

Scott's actions could make it easier for the Jets to part ways with the veteran. There have been reports that they would like to drop him, although Scott has three years remaining on his contract and is due a guaranteed $4.2 million next season.
