SportsZone: Jets QB competition, Sandusky scandal, A-Rod woes

Posted: Updated:

HERNANDEZ -  Tuesday was the second day of the lake search for a gun that is thought be used in the murder of semi-Professional football player Odin Lloyd.

Pine Lake Park, a man-made pond in Bristol, Connecticut is hometown of Patriot's tight end Aaron Hernandez who was charged in the murder.  As late Tuesday, no evidence had been found in the pond.

SANDUSKY SCANDAL-  Three men were in court Tuesday in connection with the Penn State child sex abuse case.   Prosecutors showed enough evidence for the University's ex-President, former Vice President, and former Athletic Director to warrant a full criminal court trial.

They allegedly did not report sexual abuse claims to police.

A-ROD WOES-  The waiting game continues for Alex Rodriguez, while he hasn't played a game in the big leagues this season, he has been trying to get back to New York as fast as he can. 

But, the accusations of Rodriguez using performance enhancing drugs and his involvement with Biogenesis could lead to many outcomes from sitting a season to being banned for life.

JETS QUARTERBACK COMPETITION-  The quarterback saga continued at the New York Jets training camp.

Since former WVU standout Geno Smith was drafted to New York back in April the big talk surrounding the team was who would land the starting spot between him and Sanchez.  With the decision getting closer, the competition between the two in practice got intense.

"Competing for starting job against a veteran quarterback in Mark Sanchez, against a really good defense, collectively it all is a challenge, and I accept that challenge and I'm out here doing my best to match it," said Smith.
