Last year, before a Jets-Dolphins game, Rex Ryan said he wanted his players to “put some hot sauce on” then-Dolphins running back Reggie Bush. Bush didn’t take kindly to that, viewing it as a suggestion that Ryan wanted Bush to get hurt.
This year, Bush is on the Lions and the Jets are about to see him again in the preseason opener. And Ryan wants Bush to know there’s no hot sauce in the preseason.
“I won’t say we’re going to put hot sauce on you Reggie,” Ryan said at his press conference today. “I don’t want to offend you. Get him [saying] ‘Oh, I’m going to kill you.’ Alright, thank you Reggie.”
Ryan apologized last year and said he thought Bush should also apologize for comments he made about Darrelle Revis getting hurt. Perhaps the two can hash out their differences in Detroit on Friday.
