Today's must-see content delivered straight to you.
Vick to the Jets?

After all, Michael Vick has looked good in green before. Could [Vick's] next home be at the Meadowlands? NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that, based on conversations in the past week, it's clear the Jets are viewed as a legitimate possible landing spot for the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, according to sources informed of the Jets' thinking. Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is Vick's former offensive coordinator with the Eagles. According to Rapoport, the understanding is that there is "mutual respect" between the two men. Vick is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next month. Vick's experience and professionalism is seen as a positive for Jets quarterback Geno Smith, who went through his rookie season without a legitimate backup quarterback on the roster.

LSU lands an eighth-grade QB

Quarterback Zadock Dinkelmann has never played a down of high school varsity football, but that didn't stop him from landing a college scholarship offer. What makes that more impressive is that the middle schooler with a big arm, polished mechanics and a 6-foot-4 and 200 pound frame is committed to play for LSU, one of the top schools in the nation's top conference. "You dream of stuff like that," said Johan Dinkelmann, Zadock's father. ... Johan played football at Cincinatti, while Zadock's grandfather, coaching legend Sonny Detmer, is the father of both Ty Detmer and Koy Detmer, who also serves as an assistant on the team. ... "Sonny knows Cam really well," Johan said. "He recruited Ty and has been around the family. They have a close relationship and all that stuff." (247Sports.com) Comment

Rondo under Celtics' scrutiny

As the losses pile up -- five in a row and counting -- Boston now has a sidebar headline. [The] team is still hoping to straighten things out with Rajon Rondo after his decision to stay in Los Angeles and not accompany the team to Sacramento for Saturday's game. While some were displeased by the move, for which Rondo did not receive official permission, others pointed out he was not scheduled to play in the game anyway. ... Multiple sources say he remained in LA for a birthday celebration. He turned 28 on Saturday. The captain didn't want to get into the matter before last night's 110-98 loss to the Jazz. "We already talked about it," Rondo said. "There's nothing to talk about." That doesn't appear to be the case. President of basketball operations Danny Ainge said [Monday] he is still looking into the situation. (Boston Herald) Comment
