The Jets are back on the practice field to begin the final week of the preseason. They still have to make three roster moves before tomorrow's 75 deadline. The expectation is that Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg will be the quarterbacks on Thursday against the Eagles.

The Giants first-team WRs today were Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard on the outside with Victor Cruz in the slot. Don't expect that to change barring injury.

Brandon Jennings shared his thoughts about the value of winning an NBA title - and performing on the league's biggest stage - in building a player's legacy when he tweeted that he'd sign up for Robert Horry's career over Reggie Miller's. "A lot of people don't think winning is important," Jennings tweeted over the weekend. This may be in reference to DeAndre Jordan saying an Olympic gold medal is "above" an NBA title." Jennings certainly brings up an interesting point in a debate that will likely continue for years to come. On the Knicks, Jennings added, "Winning a ring in NYC will be the biggest thing since the Lakers won in 00. But bigger!" New York last won a title in 1973.

In case you were wondering, Madison Square Garden CEO and Knicks owner James Dolan has no plans to sell any part of his ownership of the team. MSG president Doc O'Connor was asked on an earnings call if Dolan had any plans to sell a monitory stake in the Knicks. "We have no plans to sell minority stakes in any of our teams at this time," O'Connor said, according to a transcript provided by business site Seeking Alpha. With valuations of NBA teams at an all-time high, Dolan could probably sell a piece of the team for a high price. But, according to O'Connor, that's not under consideration.
