"I have had other high profile athletes who have been incarcerated with no problems and this latest athlete follows that same pattern," the sheriff said. What remains unclear is how the entire episode flew under the radar for nearly half a year. Either way, it's now in the past for McNabb, who appears poised to keep his multiple jobs in the media.
New Jets RB Chris Johnson understands he's entering a timeshare.
Memorably, Johnson was against the Titans' signing of Shonn Greene last season, but has changed his tune. "I want to come into a program where I think we could win," Johnson said. "And if that's what the coach feels we (have to do to) win, then that's what we have to do." Johnson's YPC slumped to 3.86 in 2013, but he could be reinvigorated as a committee back who gets to concentrate on his strengths. Johnson should be in for 12-15 touches per game.
