“Absolutely not,” the...Read more »
Rex Ryan came away "impressed" after watching cornerback D.J. Hayden’s workout in Houston Monday, according to Houston’s KPRC-TV.

Shame on you, Orioles. At least that's how Rex Ryan feels.
The Jets coach believes the Major League ballclub should, and could, have done more to ensure the Super Bowl champion Ravens opened up the regular-season at home.

It’s no secret why Ryan would be intrigued by the...Read more »
If anyone in the Jets organization is discussing trading Darrelle Revis, it isn’t Rex Ryan.
Or, so he claims.

PHOENIX – Rex Ryan believes that the 2013 Jets will have better play from their quarterback. He just doesn’t know who that quarterback is.

“I’m confident that we’re going to improve,”...Read more »

"I know for a fact that we're not actively trying to trade Darrelle Revis," the Jets coach told reporters at the AFC coaches breakfast in Phoenix Tuesday. “But if somebody calls, you listen.”
