NFL notebook: Gase calls Bell trade talk 'ridiculous'

New York Jets coach Adam Gase on Thursday dismissed speculation that All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell was on the trading block, calling it "ridiculous." After the Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan and named Gase the interim GM last week, there was talk that Gase had objected to Maccagnan's March signing of Bell to a four-year, $52.5 million deal. Asked if he thought the Jets overpaid for Bell, Gase replied, "No." "No, the contract was what it was," he said.

Alexander: Lakers GM Rob Pelinka tries to stay above the fray

EL SEGUNDO — Who would have been willing to bet, at mid-morning Monday, that Rob Pelinka would actually show his face at the 11 a.m. news conference to introduce new Lakers coach Frank Vogel? Give him credit, regardless of what you think of his ability as a general manager. Pelinka showed up and did not shrink from the questions, a large number of them referencing Magic Johnson’s scorched-earth appearance on ESPN’s “First Take” on Monday morning, when he accused Pelinka of backstabbing and outli...

NEW YORK -- Coming off a disastrous 1-5 road trip capped by a three-game sweep at the hands of the Miami Marlins, the worst team in baseball, the Mets could very well have chosen to fire Mickey Callaway. “Mickey is our manager now and Mickey is our manager going forward,'' Van Wagenen declared.

Why the New York Jets deserve the controversy, dysfunction surrounding them

1. I think the Jets architecture job is not the one to take if you want to run a franchise, Peyton Manning. To be charitable, the Jets are not close to contention. 2. I think I won't be the first to use this rationale for my opinion about what happened when Mike Maccagnan got dismissed the other day as Jets GM, but it's the first thing that occurred to me: The Jets truly deserve this controversy.
