Jay Feely and Braylon Edwards share some history with both Michigan and the Jets? [Feely] is now an Arizona Cardinal. Could the same be said for Edwards soon? "I'd love to see it, I really would," Feely told Sports 620 KTAR's Dave Burns and John Gambadoro. Feely said teaming Edwards with Larry Fitzgerald, Chansi Stuckey and Todd Heap would create a dynamic offense. "I think getting that number two guy," he said, "if we can get him, and if the finances work." And that's one of the big ifs. Edwards, who had 53 catches for 904 yards and seven touchdowns last year, is supposedly looking for a long-term deal. The Cardinals, on the other hand, would likely want to sign him for just one season -- two at most. (Arizona Sports)Comment
Nearing the 20th anniversary of the announcement that he had contracted HIV, Magic Johnson sat down for a one-on-one conversation recently at Loyola Marymount University. [It] pains Johnson to this day that he cut his NBA career short, frankly because he didn't believe it was necessary. "If I knew what I know now, I wouldn't have retired," Johnson said. "But I didn't know that then. And you've just got to go with what happened." At the time, many wrongly perceived that Johnson had contracted AIDs and that he could spread the disease through simple contact. ... "I decided to retire because I didn't want to hurt the game."

Clay Buchholz began a new rehab routine Tuesday that he hopes puts him on track for a playoff appearance. "If there was a timetable, I think the postseason would be where I'd want to come back," Buchholz said before [Tuesday] night's 3-2 Sox win over the Cleveland Indians at Fenway Park [map]. "That makes the most sense to me as far as being able to help this team out." ... All sides said the injury is not career-threatening and Buchholz will be 100 percent healthy by the start of spring training. Of course, no one wants to think about next season with the Sox positioned as World Series contenders. "It hasn't been ruled out," manager Terry Francona said of a return this season. "We don't know. If you see him pitch, he's OK. So we'll see." (Boston Herald)Comment
