NY Jets coach 'did not deny causing the accident' after allegedly going through red light.
New York Jets head football coach Rex Ryan told authorities he was trying “to beat the light” when he apparently caused a minor three-car crash during the evening rush hour last week in Bethlehem, Pa., police said. The accident occurred at the intersection of Wyandotte and W. Third streets, just south of the Hill-to-Hill Bridge on Jan. 14 at 6:13 p.m. One eyewitness and the driver of one of the other two cars in the crash told police they saw a 2013 red Ford Mustang, which Ryan was driving, go through a red light as it traveled west along W. Third Street, police said. Though police said the investigation remains ongoing, the partially redacted accident report Bethlehem officials released Tuesday said Ryan, a Summit resident, received a …

15-year career with organization ends after team misses playoffs for second straight season.
Tuesday, January 1
Basking Ridge resident Mike Tannenbaum was fired Monday as New York Jets general manager after 15 years with the team. After missing the playoffs for the second straight season, the Jets dismissed Tannenbaum in an early-morning meeting at their Florham Park practice facility, according to ESPN. Tannenbaum became emotional when he read a farewell letter to the team after his firing, ESPN reported. The team then applauded Tannenbaum, who began his Jets career as a salary-cap manager under Bill Parcells before becoming the GM in 2006. Tannenbaum and the Jets organization were criticized last year for the signing of popular quarterback, Tim Tebow, when the team already had a starting signal caller in Mark Sanchez. Tannenbaum spoke in 2011 at a…

Area real estate agents say gated communities are scarce if that's his wish.
Is Tim Tebow trying to take Mark Sanchez's job and invade his neighborhood? That's what some were saying when a report surfaced over the weekend that the newest New York Jet was looking at a home in the upscale Trump National Golf Club community in Bedminister. It also happens to contain the residence of the team's current starting quarterback. It's not hard to see why some were doing a double-take. After all, the most highly-publicized backup quarterback ever has not only been getting all of the media attention, but that comes right after Sanchez signed a three-year contract extension. Many fans believe he's here to take Sanchez's job. But now his house? Then again, Tebow's options may be limited, according to area real estate agents. "…

Florham Park Police and training facility security were on the scene ready for Tebow Mania.
Football fans gathered outside of Florham Park's Atlantic Health Jets Training Facility on Thursday to welcome the newest member of Gang Green.

New York is holding its training camp at its home facility for the first time since moving to Morris County.

The practice was part of a public event, which featured games, merchandise booths, and, of course, the players running drills. Former New York Giant Plaxico Burress was on the field on …
