After skipping his exit meeting last season over frustration with the Knicks, Kristaps Porzingis expresses confidence in the new management team of Steve Mills and Scott Perry: "I have faith in those people and I believe they want us to grow," Porzingis said. "They want for me to be in a position where I can succeed. I'm excited. A lot of new things are happening. A lot of new people are here. There's going to be a lot of changes. I'm coming in, as I said, with a fresh mind. I'm looking forward to this season."

Former Jets LB Erin Henderson is suing the team for wrongful termination and disability discrimination, according to NJ Advance Media. He's seeking $3.3 million in compensatory damages, plus punitive damages. Henderson, who battled alcohol problems in the past, was placed on the non-football injury list last October -- unjustly, he claims. He suffers from bipolar disorder and claims the team didn't provide proper care. Henderson became a free agent in February when the Jets declined an option.

Winning in the NFL is hard, and no one knows that better than Jets QB Josh McCown. Before yesterday, he had lost 27 of 29 games, going back to his two seasons with the Browns. He hopes yesterday can be a confidence builder for the Jets. "With this group, as young as we are, it was important for us to get that first win," he said today. "I was in a situation in Cleveland where it dragged out for some time." He meant last season, when they started 0-14 and finished 1-15.

Several Jets players traced the roots of yesterday's win to halftime of their Week 2 loss to the Raiders. The Jets lost by 25 points after trailing by 11 at halftime in Oakland, but "there was a different type of energy" in the locker room, Leonard Williams said today. "That same passion has been with us since."
