The Rangers said “a vile individual hijacked the chat to post racial slurs, which we disabled as soon as possible. We were incredibly appalled by this behavior, which has no place online, on the ice, or anywhere.” The NHL condemned it as well, saying “the person who committed this despicable act is in no way an NHL fan and is not welcome in the hockey community.”

New Jets WR Breshad Perriman doesn't lack confidence. He said his impressive finish last season for the Bucs was "just a tiny glimpse" of his potential. He also said, "I also have no doubt in my mind it's definitely going to be a season to remember for me as far as production-wise." Last year he became the first player in the last 15 seasons to have 500 yards, five TDs and 20 yards per catch in his team's final five games. In his first 46 games, he had 1,055 yards and six TDs.

It's highly unusual for the team to announce signings before the physical, but these are unusual times because of COVID-19. Van Roten lives on Long Island, only 90 minutes from the Jets' facility. Players have contract language that spells out the ramifications if they eventually fail the physical.
