The Jets keep on doing Jets things.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that the Jets may not fire coach Rex Ryan until a new G.M. is hired. Owner Woody Johnson, per Mort, wants the G.M. to make a decision on Ryan.
According to Dom Cosentino of NJ.com, Rex Ryan isn’t happy about that.
“Rex is livid right now,” a person with knowledge of Ryan’s thinking told Cosentino. “He hasn’t talked to Woody yet, but he wants to talk to him and say, ‘Fire me [bleeping] today. Fire me whenever. I’m not going to hang around and miss out on [another job opportunity].'”
This assumes that Rex will have another job opportunity. Perhaps he will; a guy like Rex would make plenty of sense for a team like the Bears, Falcons, Raiders, each of who have a quarterback but who each need the kind of defensive enema Rex would provide.
