Coach Rex Ryan told the New York Times Saturday he still thinks Michael Vick could have a role on the team beyond just being the backup quarterback.
Oh, come on. Not the Wildcat again? How behind-the-times can the Jets be? Not only does it not work well anymore, but throwing a guy like Vick into it is just begging for him to go down with an injury within the first few weeks of the season. Why can't they just leave him as a good, old-fashioned, regular back-up. Playing with trick plays and college-like formations is so 2008. Let's just leave it in the past. Please. And no, this nonsense talk does not increase the value of Michael Vick from a fantasy standpoint.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
Braves signed P Jim Johnson to a one-year deal.
After saving 50-plus games two consecutive years in Baltimore, Johnson has been a shell of that the past two seasons. He only has 12 saves combined over the past two seasons. He posted a 7.09 ERA in 2014 and a 4.46 ERA in 2015. The Braves are giving him one year to figure himself out or he'll likely have a hard time finding work. He can only hope his sinker starts sinking like it did in Baltimore. Analysis: James Grande
