Jets coach Rex Ryan recently declined to rule out the possibility of moving quarterback Tajh Boyd to a new position. In response, Boyd expressed no interest in moving to a new position.
“I can’t see myself playing another position,” Boyd said Saturday, via Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. “If it happens, I guess I’ll make the most out of it. But I just really can’t see that happening.”
It’s a premature topic. And it’s a subject that may never become relevant. Per a league source, Ryan was simply applying coachspeak when answering a reporter’s question regarding the possibility of moving Boyd.
“No head coach will close the door on anything,” the source said. “He hadn’t considered it. He was just answering a question.”
And so while it remains impossible to rule out a potential move at some point, it’s not something the Jets are currently considering. Boyd was drafted eight days ago as a quarterback. That’s what he is. Whether he ends up being something else in the future is a subject for the future.
