Report: Jets already inquired about Manning

According to a report from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets have already inquired about Peyton Manning's interest in signing with the club as a free agent.

Manning -- released by the Colts on Wednesday afternoon -- has been rumored as a possibility for the Jets since the team collapsed at the end of the regular season, losing three straight games to finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs. Mark Sanchez struggled down the stretch, throwing seven interceptions in the three losses, and was ripped by several teammates (anonymously) after the season, with one suggesting Sanchez was "lazy and content because he knows he's not going to be benched." 

Rex Ryan has defended Sanchez to several different media outlets and has said that believes Sanchez will be the starting quarterback next season.

Aviles plays nine in Red Sox, Jays tie

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Shortstop Mike Aviles played all nine innings in the Red Sox' 3-3 tie with the Blue Jays Wednesday afternoon, notching a double to leadoff the game while making a key relay throw to gun down the potential go-ahead run at third in the seventh inning.

Aviles, who is in competition to earn the Red Sox' starting shortstop job, said he hadn't played nine innings at the position in March since his participation in the 2009 World Baseball Classic as a member of Team Puerto Rico.

"Out of all the positions, the one that feels the easiest for things to come back naturally has been short for me," he said. "It's one position I feel like I can take the least amount of reps and get the most comfortable quicker. Third, second or even the outfield, I feel like I have to take more reps to feel comfortable, whereas at short I can take a couple days of ground balls and feel right at home. I'm starting to feel more comfortable playing...

Turco clears waivers, joins Bruins
By: DJ Bean

 Goaltender Marty Turco cleared waivers Wednesday and joined the Bruins for their practice at Ristuccia Arena. Signed on Monday by the team, Turco had to clear waivers before he could officially join the B's.

Turco, 36, played the first nine seasons of his career with the Stars before playing for the Blackhawks last season. He went 11-11-3 with a 3.02 goals-against average and .897 save percentage. In his 10-year NHL career, Turco has a 2.35 GAA and .910 save percentage.

The B's signed Turco following Monday's news that goaltender Tuukka Rask will miss the next 4-6 weeks with an abdomen strain/groin strain.

Manning on Colts: 'Nothing lasts forever'

Peyton Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay held an emotiional press conference Wednesday to announce the decision that Manning will become a free agent after 14 years in Indianapolis.

"It's a difficult day here of shared pain, between Peyton, myself, the fans, everyone," a tearful Irsay said, adding: "The 18 jersey will never be worn again by a Colt on the field."

Manning, reading from a prepared statement, also showed a great deal of emotion while explaining his thought process.

"I guess in life and in sports we all know that nothing lasts forever," he said, his voice frequently cracking. "Times change, circumstances change, and that's the reality of playing in the NFL."

Asked if he's comfortable with his decision, Manning said, "It's weighed real heavy on my heart. But yeah, I am at peace with it."

Theismann on M&M: Peyton fits in Arizona

Former NFL quarterback Joe Theismann, now an NFL Network analyst, joined Mut & Merloni Wednesday morning to offer his thoughts on Peyton Manning's future.

Most of the talk about Manning has centered on his ability to come back from his neck issues. But Theismann, who retired at age 36, said the soon-to-be 36-year-old Manning faces a big challenge because of his age alone.

"The difference between 30 and 32 is not as significant as the difference between 34 and 36 going to 37," Theismann said. "Your eyes tell you where you want to go with the football, but the zip isn't quite there. And we all know that football is just really a game of inches -- just half-inches, quarter-inches, being able to get a pass in. You can see the route, you know where it's supposed to go, but the body isn't cooperating. And then it really becomes frustrating."

Asked to speculate on Manning's mindset as he prepares to return following a year...
