Dolphins' Bush says if Jets don't like him, tough

The Miami Dolphins don't play the archrival New York Jets again this year, yet the barbs keep coming.

Three days after the Dolphins' emotional 30-9 road win against the Jets, Miami running back Reggie Bush revisited his feud with cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Following a succession of verbal jabs last week between the teams, Bush gave Cromartie a vicious stiff-arm in the first quarter that set the tone for the rout.

After the game, Cromartie called Bush a punk who showed "his true colors."

"I've been called a lot of things, but not a punk," Bush said with a laugh on Wednesday. "I don't feel like I did anything illegal. I didn't try to hurt him. I didn't talk about hurting him or ending his career or anything like that. What I did was perfectly within the rules, and if he didn't like it, it's tough. That's football. I've been on the side of some ugly stuff. The last thing I'm going to do is cry about it and call somebody a punk."

Jaguars' Mularkey unaware of any Tebow trade talks

The Jacksonville Jaguars are back in the middle of Tim Tebow talks again.

Though this time, they say the reports are not true.

A local television station reported that the Jaguars and the New York Jets were talking about a trade involving the popular quarterback.

The report by Action News in Jacksonville sounded plausible since the Jaguars tried to acquire Tebow in March. But Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey says there's no truth to the report of ongoing talks between the Jets and the Jaguars.

Mularkey said Wednesday there are no discussions "that I am aware of."

Tebow, the former Florida Gators star, has completed 2 of 3 passes for 32 yards with the Jets as Mark Sanchez's backup this season. Tebow also has eight carries for 23 yards.
