Tebow: 'Honored and humbled to be a Jet'

New Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow discussed his potential role with the team and his relationship with starting QB Mark Sanchez when he met the media for a 35-minute press conference Monday at team headquarters in Florham Park, N.J.

"I'm so honored and humbled to be a Jet and thankful they wanted me," Tebow said, adding: "I'm excited about being a Jet. This is where I want to be."

Tebow confirmed a report that Broncos management asked him his preference when considering offers from the Jets and Jaguars, and he said that he told Denver he would have been happy with either destination.

"I had a better relationship with the Jets coaches," he said, noting that he had not met the new Jaguars staff.

Added Tebow: "I've always had a great relationship with coach [Rex] Ryan."

Tebow said he's known Sanchez for about three years, and the two have texted each other during that time. During a...

Papelbon: 'I wasn't trying to offend' Sox fans

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Speaking prior to the Phillies' spring training game against the Red Sox Monday, former Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon clarified his comments made in early March in which he suggested Philadelphia baseball fans were more knowledgeable than Boston baseball fans.

"Obviously I wasn't try to offend nobody," Papelbon said. "I was just calling a spade a spade. I've been in the bullpen down there many a time in Boston to know this guy doesn't have a clue what he's talking about, and it happens in Philadelphia, too. I was simply saying because the American League is different than the National League there's a little bit more thought process that goes along with that."

The controversy started when Papelbon went on CBS Radio in Philadelphia on March 8 and said, "The difference between Boston and Philadelphia, the Boston fans are a little bit more hysterical when it comes to the game of baseball. The Philly fans...

Mashup: Giants tweak Jets about Tebow

The Giants are the defending Super Bowl champions, but the Jets have been grabbing the offseason headlines, most recently with their trade for Tim Tebow.

At the NFL owners meetings in Florida, Giants owner John Mara joked about the fact that the Jets have a press conference scheduled for Monday to introduce their backup quarterback.

"The David Carr press conference will be [Monday] afternoon, too," Mara said, referring to the Giants backup who did not throw a pass last season while playing behind Eli Manning.

Added co-owner Steve Tisch: "Well, [the Jets] are getting a lot of attention, so if that was one of their goals, I think they have been successful."

Jets coach Rex Ryan was respectful when apprised of the Giants bosses' comments.

"When you win a Super Bowl, you can say anything you want because they are the world champions," Ryan said. "That's all fine and dandy. To the young man [Tebow...

Wizards coach: We allowed Bradley to score

While everyone from Doc Rivers to Rajon Rondo praised Celtics guard Avery Bradley on his career night, Wizards coach Randy Wittman wasn't impressed.

"I could have scored those layups," Wittman said after watching Bradley score a career-high 23 points in an 88-76 Celtics victory over his Wizards. "I'm being serious. We didn't have anybody guarding him. When I was a player, if you gave me four layups to start the game, I'd have a pretty good groove on to make some jump shots. He ought to send us a postcard of thank yous or something for allowing him to score. I'm sure he thought it was still layup lines before the game."

Bradley's 23 points came on 9-for-14 shooting. For the record, Wittman averaged 7.4 points over nine NBA seasons for the Hawks, Kings and Pacers from 1983-92.
