INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The reminders that Jeff Gordon won here 20 years ago plaster Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) — A lot was expected of Dee Milliner last year as the New York Jets' first-round draft pick.

The cornerback had a rough rookie season, but rebounded with solid play in the final few games.

With Antonio Cromartie gone after signing with Arizona, Milliner might have even more pressure on him in his second season. He's being counted on to be the Jets' No. 1 cornerback, a role Rex Ryan insists the former Alabama star is ready for....
