NEW YORK (AP) -- Running back Joe McKnight, who has had a tumultuous summer, and veteran guard Stephen Peterman are among the first roster cuts by the New York Jets.

McKnight, the team's primary kick returner the past two seasons, was let go Monday after a series of incidents that included a concussion, an arrest for unpaid traffic warrants and tension with the media.

Peterman, signed in the offseason, appeared in line to start at left guard but the improved play of Vladimir Ducasse and rookie Brian Winters made him expendable.

Also cut are running back Chad Spann, offensive linemen Patrick Ford and Trey Gilleo, wide receivers Joe Collins, Marcus Rucker, K.J. Stroud and Rahsaan Vaughn, linebacker Sean Progar-Jackson, defensive backs Donnie Fletcher and Bret Lockett, punter Ryan Quigley and long snapper Patrick Scales.

    With the All-Star break over and the second half of the MLB season well underway, the New York Mets (46-52 as of July 20) and the New York Yankees (50-47 as of July 20) find themselves in the same situations each team is accustomed to at this time of the season. The Yankees are in the middle of the AL East Division title while the Mets are scrapping for every win possible to stay relevant in the NL East. But while the record says one thing, reality says another.
