Report: Jets pass on Moss, deny meeting

According to a New York Daily News report, the Jets will not put in a claim for Randy Moss by Wednesday's 4 p.m. deadline. Gary Myers writes that a league source indicated the team will not attempt to claim Moss nor Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman.

 

Earlier Wednesday, the team denied a radio report of a meeting between Moss and the Jets in New Jersey. "There has been no contact with Moss or his agent," a team spokesman said. "Zero."

 

It would be tampering for a team to contact Moss while he is on waivers.

Brady on Moss: 'Try to keep my mouth shut'

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady admitted Wednesday he has a very close friendship with Randy Moss off the field but he stopped well short of pleading to coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots to make a waiver claim on the troubled wide receiver. 

 

“Would I welcome him back?" Brady said in repeating the question asked of him midway through his Wednesday presser at Gillette Stadium. "You can ask coach Belichick. I don’t make the decisions around here. If I did, Lawyer Milloy would still be here and Deion [Branch] never would have left. Whatever I want doesn’t happen anyway, so I just try to keep my mouth shut.”

Casey Kelly named top Red Sox prospect

Right-handed pitcher Casey Kelly was named the top prospect in the Red Sox organization by Baseball America, which released its Top 10 ranking of the farm system on Wednesday. Kelly just concluded his Arizona Fall League season, and while his 4-5 record and 5.51 ERA between Double-A Portland and the Arizona Fall League hardly proved eye-popping, the pitcher's stuff -- a fastball that touched as high as 96 mph this year and a swing-and-miss curve and change -- made him the clear No. 1 in the Sox system, ahead of second-ranked prospect Jose Iglesias.

Mankins: 'It was the time to come back'

FOXBORO -- One day after reporting following a three-month holdout, offensive guard Logan Mankins admitted he's not sure if he got what he wanted out of his dispute with the Patriots. But he acknowledged Wednesday at a news conference at Gillette Stadium that he missed the game and was happy to be back with his teammates.

 

"I'm not looking at it like I'm early," said Mankins, who came back two weeks before the deadline for receiving credit for playing this season. "I'm eight weeks late. I felt like it was the time to come back."

 

Mankins was asked if he will regret holding out. "We'll see," he said. Mankins added he's not sure missing half the season was worth making the point to the organization, "Not at the moment," Mankins said.

Tim Thomas expected to start Wednesday
By: DJ Bean

Tim Thomas was first off the ice at the Bruins' morning skate in Buffalo, according to multiple reports on Wednesday, and it appears the 36-year-old goaltender will be between the pipes for the Bruins when they take on the Sabres on Wednesday night. 

 

Thomas was named the NHL's No. 2 star of the month for October after going 6-0 with a 0.50 goals against average, a .984 save percentage, and three shutouts. Ryan Miller is not expected to play for the Sabres due to a lower body injury suffered on Friday, and Patrick Lalime is expected to replace him in net on Wednesday.
