NY Jets players being probed over alleged harassment

The New York Jets American football team is being investigated over claims its players behaved inappropriately to a female television reporter. Ines Sainz, a former Miss Spain who has been styled "the hottest sports reporter in Mexico," visited one of the team's practice sessions to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez for the Mexican station TV Azteca.

Ines Sainz, a former Miss Spain who has been styled "the hottest sports reporter in Mexico," visited one of the team's practice sessions to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez for the Mexican station TV Azteca.

Players and coaches were said to have begun overthrowing the ball to where she was standing so they could run up to her, and called out suggestive comments in the dressing room.

Sainz slinked into Monday night's Jet game insisting that she "felt very uncomfortable" when lusty Jet players made salacious comments about her.

"I didn't want any part of it," the blonde bombshell said at the New Meadowlands Stadium before the Jets' heartbreaking 10-9 season-opening loss to the Baltimore Ravens. "I heard the noise. I knew they were talking about me. I was just focusing on my job and hoping that Mark Sanchez was coming soon so I could interview him."

On Saturday, Jet coach Rex Ryan and defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman purposely overthrew passes to players on the field during practice so the footballs would land near Sainz, whose curves were displayed in tight blue jeans and a white blouse.

"Jeans and a white button-downed blouse with boots is not wearing something inappropriate," Sainz said in a message on her Twitter account.

She also posted a picture on Twitter (see above) of herself at the practice to try and silence any critics. However, she admitted: "My body type might be the type that could stretch jeans a little."

Embarrassed team owner Woody Johnson phoned the married mother of three on Sunday and offered her an "open apology."

Johnson said the players would be grilled about their conduct toward Sainz -- who posed nude for a magazine earlier this year.
