New York Teams

The New York Yankees' bullpen is positively terrifying. They added Adam Ottavino — on a three-year, $27 million deal — to a group that already includes Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, Zach Britton, Chad Green and Jonathan Holder, among others. The best pen in the game, period.

Jets coach Adam Gase, in a radio interview today, said he hasn't seen any of the memes from his introductory presser. Said Gase: "I don't have Twitter or Instagram. I don't read the Internet. I don't watch TV. All that stuff is irrelevant to me. It's pollution of the brain. I really don't care. That's not how I operate. I'm here to do one thing and that's to help this organization win."

Jets coach Adam Gase, commenting on new DC Gregg Williams, said he has no issues with Williams' long-ago involvement in BountyGate. "Gregg was penalized for that heavily." Gase said. "Football was taken away from him. He did his time. That's what makes this country great, right? People get second chances all the time. He's gotten a second chance. He's done it right. He's gone and worked extremely hard to do things right. For me or anyone else to hold that over his head, to me, is wrong. ... People make mistakes. We've moved on from it. That's not something I'm even concerned about.'' (Via Pro Football Talk).

Newly-hired Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is looking to fill out his staff. From what I'm hearing, some names under consideration are: LBs — Blake Williams, his son; DBs — Dennard Wilson (retained from previous Jets staff); DL Clyde Simmons. Assistant DBs — Steve Jackson (previous Jets staff). Simmons and Williams were with Williams last season in Cleveland. Wilson and Jackson coached with Williams in previous stops. Kris Kocurek was eyed for the DL job (he coached under Adam Gase last year in Miami), but he was hired by San Francisco.
