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."

C's work out McCants, Morrison

WALTHAM — Two former college stars are in Waltham this week, working out with the Celtics, a source familiar with the team told WEEI.com.

 

Former North Carolina star Rashad McCants and Gonzaga standout Adam Morrison are in town this week working out for the Celtics. Morrison worked out on Tuesday and had a second session scheduled for Wednesday. The third overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Bobcats, Morrison spent 2½ seasons in Charlotte — missing one season with a knee injury — before being traded to the Lakers, where he played limited minutes while his team won two NBA titles.

 

McCants starred on the 2005 Tar Heels team that captured the NCAA title and played with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings and was involved with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian before she met and married Lamar Odom.

Sox add four international amateurs

The Red Sox have signed two Latin American amateurs and agreed to terms with two others. The team has added Colombian right-hander Edwin Osorio and Anthony Amaya, an outfielder from Panama. Right-handed pitcher Joseph Carpabire and shortstop Denier Lopez, both from Venezuela, have also agreed to terms. Their contracts are not yet official as routine background investigations are performed on both.

Francona on D&H: Kalish is 'a keeper'

Red Sox manager Terry Francona made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday afternoon and talked about the team's philosophy heading into the final days of the regular season with a playoff berth highly unlikely.

 

"It changes, but the philosophy of our games certainly don't change," Francona said. "Regardless of who plays, you try to play the game right and you try to win. Obviously, we're incorporating some younger kids in the lineup, and we're trying to get them to understand what a huge honor it is to play in these games. If you're a Lars Anderson and you're playing a couple of games instead of a Mikey Lowell, he needs to understand that, 'Look, man, this guy has had a long career and you're taking some of his at-bats, so get after it.' And I think they're doing that."

 

Francona praised the work of Ryan Kalish, suggesting that he viewed the 22-year-old as "a true center...
