During his time as an NFL coach in the 1980s, Buddy Ryan was accused of putting bounties on opposing players’ heads.
This week Buddy’s sons, Jets coach Rex Ryan and Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, are preparing to square off against each other. And Rex says he’s learned a little something from his old man.
“There is a rumor going around that there has been a bounty placed on his head,” Rex said today. “Let’s be honest: There is a bounty.”
So how much will Rex give his players if they take his brother out?
“Not much,” Rex said. “Five bucks.”
Oh, and Rex also met the media today while dressed up like his brother. You’d think that dressing up as his twin wouldn’t really make Rex look unusual, but you’d be wrong. He looked ridiculous.
