Holmes on Harrison fine: 'It's [expletive]'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Santonio Holmes was asked Friday by WEEI.com about comments made by his former teammate Hines Ward on Wednesday. Ward called the NFL “hypocritical” and said the league “doesn’t care” about the players. Holmes quickly agreed with Ward’s thoughts and also came to the defense of another former teammate, James Harrison, who was fined $25,000 for a hit on Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday.

 

“They don’t [care], they don’t,” said Holmes, who played with the Steelers from 2006-09. “I think it’s [expletive]. I don’t care, you tackle a guy, you hit a guy? That’s the [expletive] object of the game. That hit that he [Harrison] made on that quarterback? That was a [expletive] clean hit that he shouldn’t get fined for.”

 

Harrison has been fined four times now for a total of $125,000 this season, but it is the...

Ryan: Jets 'ready' for sarcastic Pats

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Rex Ryan met with the media following Jets practice on Friday and was asked if his team was excited to play in Monday's heavily-anticipated showdown with the Patriots.

 

"We're ready - we are ready to play," said Ryan. "There's no doubt. We know New England is. I know they say we are a great team and I see the sarcasm. But they are going to find out if we are a great team or not, I can tell you that much."

 

Ryan was asked where he sensed sarcasm in the Patriots comments.

 

"I just sense it," said Ryan. "They all have the same comment. You know, 'we will just say this and this' but you know what? We're coming, we will show up and see what happens."

Jets lose safety to 'severe' leg injury

The Jets secondary will have to rely more on the talents of their two shut-down corners after coach Rex Ryan announced Friday that starting safety Jim Leonhard had to be carted off the practice field in Florham Park, N.J., with a "severe" leg injury. 

 

Ryan said Leonhard likely suffered a break of the leg and will be out against the Patriots. Leonhard leads the Jets secondary with 65 tackles and served as the signal-caller for the secondary, including cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie. WEEI.com's Kirk Minihane is on site covering the Jets in Florham Park and will have more on how this injury could impact Monday night's game.

Sox would have dumped Papelbon for Rivera

According to ESPN.com, the Red Sox made a two-year, $30 million offer to Mariano Rivera, with the idea that, had he accepted, they would not have tendered a contract for the 2011 season to closer Jonathan Papelbon. Rivera instead is close to finalizing a two-year, $30 million offer to return to the Yankees, according to the Associated Press.

 

Rivera had a 1.80 ERA and converted 33 of 38 save opportunities for the Yankees in 2010. Meanwhile, Papelbon -- who entered last year with a career 1.84 ERA -- had a career-worst 3.90 mark, and while he saved 37 contests, he also blew eight saves.
