2005 Heisman Trophy will stay vacated

On Wednesday, the Heisman Trophy Trust announced that the 2005 Heisman Trophy -- forfeited by former USC running back Reggie Bush on Tuesday -- will remain vacated.

 

"The Trustees of the Trust have been monitoring the NCAA investigation of Reggie Bush and USC since first announced," said the Heisman Trophy Trust in a statement. "We determined that no action was necessary by the Trust unless and until the NCAA acted and issued its report. Since the issuance of the NCAA decision vacating USC's 2005 season and declaring Reggie Bush an ineligible athlete, the Trustees have met, discussed and reviewed all information underlying this decision in an effort to exercise the due diligence and due process required of any decision regarding the awarding of the 2005 Heisman Trophy.

 

As a result of Reggie Bush's decision to forfeit his title as Heisman winner of 2005, the Trustees have determined that there will...

Revis: Moss 'played like a slouch'

According to a report in the Boston Herald, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Wednesday refused to step back from his comments last season about Randy Moss. Revis referred to Moss as a "slouch" after limiting the All-Pro wideout in both 2009 matchups.

 

"I called him a slouch because I felt he played like a slouch," Revis said on Wednesday at the Jets practice facility in Florham Park, NJ. "They tried to come after me in the second game. He wasn’t a slouch in the second game but if I said it in January you guys know I said it."

 

Revis is aware of the comments made by Moss in his postgame press conference following the win over the Bengals Sunday. Moss told the media his entire offseason preparation was...

Rex on Adalius Thomas: We don't need him

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that he has spoken with Adalius Thomas but stopped short of saying that the Jets were close to bringing him on board as part of their star-studded linebacking corps.

 

"We're set pretty good with the guys we have," Ryan said. "We have Jason Taylor and Bryan Thomas, so we feel pretty good about our outside backers."

 

Ryan, who added that linebacker Calvin Pace [foot] wouldn't be sidelined as long as originally thought, said Thomas was not being considered for a job with the Jets right now. 

 

"It was no surprise that New England picked him up. I think he played better than people give him credit for up there," Ryan said. "He almost won the Super Bowl against the Giants. He had a strip-sack, just missed another one that ended up being a long gain."
