Rex: Jets might go after ex-Pats' LB Thomas

An injury to Jets linebacker Calvin Pace could clear the way for a reunion of Rex Ryan and former Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas.

Pace, who broke his foot in the third quarter of Friday’s game against the Redskins, will reportedly be out a few weeks with the injury. That could leave New York in the market for a free agent linebacker like Thomas, who played for Ryan in Baltimore when he was the defensive coordinator with the Ravens.

“I would say it would be a possibility,” the Jets head coach said Sunday when he was asked about New York possibly signing Thomas. “I’m not going to rule that out.”

Thomas played for the Patriots the last three seasons, but his time in New England came to a bitter end in April when he was released by the team. It marked the end one of the most eventful three-year careers with the Patriots — Thomas went from moments of brilliance in 2007 to being a...

Johnson's 10th-inning homer sinks Sox

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Dan Johnson hit a 2-2 pitch from Scott Atchison over the right field wall with nobody out in the 10th inning to give the Rays a 3-2 win over the Red Sox, Saturday night at Tropicana Field. The loss moves the Sox to 5 1/2 games in back of Tampa Bay in the wild card chase.

 

Clay Buchholz turned in another solid outing, allowing just two runs over seven innings. The Red Sox starter, who lowered his American League-leading ERA to 2.21, saw his scoreless inning streak stopped at 26 when Carlos Pena tagged up on a Matt Joyce fly ball in foul ground in the seventh inning. Pena had reached third after Buchholz' pickoff throw sailed wide of first baseman Mike Lowell.

 

The only other run against Buchholz came in the eighth inning, after Victor Martinez had given the Red Sox a 2-1 lead with his third homer of the series. Tampa Bay was able to tie it up at 2-2 when B.J. Upton deposited the Sox' starter's second...
