Jets on 'Hard Knocks,' in New York, Hewitt not in Queens

Just got back from Jets camp, where the team officially announced it will be featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks" this summer. More on that later.

(Rex Ryan on how the post-lap-band-surgery is going: "It's really a piece of cake.")

Also, ESPN announced that will launch April 2, with former Newsday copy edtior (1984-92) Leon Carter at the helm. More on that later.

Also, Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt has turned down St. John's, despite what almost everyone other than Newsday's Steven Marcus had been reporting.

Marcus wrote in Tuesday's and Wednesday's papers that Hewitt likely would pass on the St. John's job.

Just sayin'.
