FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- After resolving his contract dispute with the New York Jets, Ryan Fitzpatrick pulled up to the team facility Wednesday night, eager to attend the first meeting of training camp.One problem: He couldnt get in. His door code no longer worked.Woody completely shut him out of the facility, wide receiver Brandon Marshall joked Thursday, referring to owner Woody Johnson.It was a fitting end to the six-month stalemate -- one last obstacle to cap an ordeal that lasted longer than both sides expected.Fitzpatrick was able to laugh about it after his first practice, a rusty performance in which he threw two interceptions, but the Jets starting quarterback indicated he wasnt too happy at the start of the negotiations. He declined to use the word insulting, but he was taken aback by the teams first offer in February -- three years, $24 million.I made clear to them I would never accept an offer like that, Fitzpatrick said.That was a deal that basically said, We want you here, and then we want you to stay here as the backup, he added. Thats not how I view myself. Id much rather pass up on some of that guaranteed money and just sign a one-year deal and bet on myself and see what happens.Fitzpatrick wagered on himself by signing a contract that will pay him $12 million this season. Technically, its a two-year deal, but the second year will void five days after the Super Bowl, he said. The second year was added for the purpose of spreading his signing bonus ($10 million) over two years. As a result, his cap hit is only $7 million for 2016. There will be a $5 million dead charge in 2017.Fitzpatrick called it a compromise that helps both sides, adding that he figured months ago it would take a deal like this to end the impasse. He was confident a deal would happen at some point, but he wanted no part of the original offer.I mean, I would almost not want them to sign a guy [to that contract], he said. How could I look myself in the mirror every morning and say, Yeah, Ill try to play good this year, and next year, Ill collect checks and teach the young guys. Thats not who I am, thats not my nature.The young guys are Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg, neither of whom is ready to compete for playing time. The No. 2 is Geno Smith, who would have been the starter if Fitzpatrick hadnt re-signed.The Jets never wavered with their plan, saying Fitzpatrick always had dibs on the starting job, so Smith wasnt blindsided by the demotion. He handled it well, although he admitted some frustration.Im not disappointed. Im kind of pissed off, Smith said. Its not a detrimental thing. Its not something where Im pissed off at anyone, because we all want to be out there. This just adds fuel to the fire, but not in a negative way.I dont want it to be a headline, because its not what Im trying to say. Its more as a competitor, as a quarterback, knowing what Im capable of and always believing in myself and knowing the work I put in in the offseason. You want to be out there.Coach Todd Bowles reiterated that Fitzpatrick is the starter, saying only an injury would prevent him from being the Week 1 quarterback.Its his job, Bowles said. I told you that in the spring. Its OK to have two quarterbacks. Its a good problem to have. Based off what he did last year, hes earned it.Bowles said the team gave Fitzpatrick a 7 p.m. ET Wednesday deadline because we had to move on. He also said it was good for some players in the locker room to have clarity.The drama ended at 6:59 p.m., when Fitzpatrick walked into the team meeting. He used Marshalls door code to get in the building and apologized to Bowles for being almost late.Thats a $12 million fine, Bowles said in front of the team, drawing laughs. Puma Womens Shoes Blue . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat.

No. 13-seeded John Isner and No. 21 Philipp Kohlschreiber were among six players who dropped out of the tournament on Tuesday, joining No. 12 seed Tommy Haas and two other players who withdrew on Monday. http://www.cheappumawomensshoes.com/ . Galatasaray said in a statement on its website Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4.

Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Another major championship is upon us, and so quickly. Werent we just lamenting the possibility of gusty winds and sideways rain off the coast of Scotland?That has been replaced by temperatures 40 degrees warmer, five time zones but just 11 days removed from the thrilling conclusion to The Open at Royal Troon.With barely any time to get acclimated, the PGA Championship is set to begin at Baltusrol Golf Club on Thursday morning. The rain and chill of Scotland has been replaced by New Jerseys unrelenting heat and humidity for the years final major championship.And for the first time since 1968, two major champions will be crowned in the same month -- provided Mother Nature does not push the 98th PGA Championship to a Monday finish.Theres no time to really dwell on anything, said Rory McIlroy, a two-time PGA Championship winner who is ranked No. 4 in the world. You can just keep going forward. It could actually be a good thing for some people.Perhaps Henrik Stenson? The Open champion is riding a wave of good play, having won the BMW International Open last month in Germany prior to his historic Open victory, during which he matched a major championship scoring record with a final-round 63.Stenson outdueled Phil Mickelson, who played brilliantly himself, finishing 11 strokes ahead of the next competitor. Mickelson, 46, is returning to the scene of his 2005 PGA Championship victory, with no time to feel sorry for himself after a performance that would have won 140 of the 145 Opens.Because we have a big tournament coming up right now and because I am playing well, he said, I dont want to let an opportunity, another really good opportunity that I have to play a PGA Championship here at Baltusrol at a course I like while my game is sharp ... and let the effects or disappointment linger.The idea is to just get back and start playing at that level again, and hopefully it will be enough this week.The PGA Championship has been played in August since 1971; that year, it moved to a February date in Florida. The last time two majors were completed in the same month was 1968, when Gary Player won The Open on July 13 at Carnoustie, Scotland, followed by Julius Boros PGA Championship victory on July 21 in San Antonio, Texas. (Player skipped the PGA that year.)The move this year was necessitated by golfs return to the Olympic Games in two weeks, hence the PGA being played two weeks earlier than usual. PGA of America officials say they are fine with it -- the tournament has announced a sellout -- aand players for the most part have come to terms with the unusual schedule.ddddddddddddPreferably one more week would have been a good thing, said Stenson.After winning The Open, Stenson headed to Switzerland for an outing, then to his home in Sweden to visit with family before returning to the U.S. over the weekend.But at the same time, when youve got the momentum and youre playing well, it might not be bad to get straight back at it, he said. It could be a bit of both.Stenson admitted, however, that the schedule has been brutal and will continue to be. Hes playing for Sweden in the Olympics, and then the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoffs -- over five weeks -- begins just two weeks later. Then comes the Ryder Cup.I know Im going to be sleeping for at least a week after the Ryder Cup, Stenson said. Thats kind of blocked out in the calendar. Just a couple of zzzzzs next to each other for a week. I knew this was going to be the case. We were going to have four months of virtually nonstop golf. Its always the busy part of the schedule, but even more so in the 2016 schedule.Defending champion Jason Day has seen his preparation impacted by the tight schedule. Two weeks ago he was battling the elements in Scotland. A week ago he traveled to Toronto to defend his Canadian Open title; he didnt contend at either tournament.He planned a much-needed day off for Monday and felt under the weather on Tuesday, electing to skip a practice round. That meant Wednesday was his only look at Baltusrol.With the limited practice and limited prep that Ive had this week, Im not coming into this week expecting a lot, said Day, the No. 1-ranked player in the world who has won three times this year. Obviously, Im expecting to win, but Im not really going to go out and force things straightaway. Ive got to really try and manage my patience out there.Last year Day set a majors scoring record in relation to par, shooting 20 under at Whistling Straits to capture his first major championship. Since then, three more first-time major winners have prevailed: Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson and Stenson.With the deepest field of any of the majors, predicting a PGA winner is always a challenge, made more so by the difficulties of the schedule and the various obstacles it has presented up to this point.But 72 holes are on tap for the next four days, the low score wins, and someone will make history, regardless.
