Jets OL Harrison’s post-football path will include mystery
Jonotthan Harrison's career path after football will include lots of mystery.
The New York Jets center has his sights set on helping solve murders as a larger-than-life homicide detective.
"It sounds strange, but I'm a real puzzle-type guy," the 6-foot-4, 300-pound Harrison said with a smile. "I have all kinds of puzzles on my phone, puzzles at home, I do picture puzzles. It's just something that, to me, is a form of a puzzle and it really sparked my interest."
The Latest: Jets, on 5-game skid, lead Titans at halftime
The Latest from Week 13 of the NFL season (all times Eastern):
The New York Jets are halfway to possibly ending a five-game losing streak.
The Jets lead the Tennessee Titans 16-6 at halftime thanks to three field goals from Jason Myers and a 31-yard interception return by Trumaine Johnson.

Jets’ Harrison overcame years of bullying to achieve dreams
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Jonotthan Harrison has not forgotten a single punch or kick, the brutal pushing and shoving, the sudden tackles to the ground with his classmates piling on top of him.
There was also the constant and flat-out mean name calling. And all the laughing. So much laughing — at his expense.
The New York Jets center endured years of bullying while growing up in central Florida, but refused to let those painful moments stop him from achieving his goals.
