Bills claim linebacker who punched Geno Smith

Just one day after he was waived by the Jets for breaking quarterback Geno Smith's jaw in a locker room altercation, linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali was claimed by the Buffalo Bills.

There, he will be reunited with former Jets head coach Rex Ryan.

"If we didn't think this young man or anybody else would be successful on the football field, in our locker room or in the community, he would not be here," Ryan told reporters.

Ryan's Jets were no stranger to locker room controversies, either. It's no surprise that the defensive-minded coach would take on the embattled young linebacker.

While his motives are unclear, it's fitting that Ryan's name has somehow popped into the Jets' drama once again, just like old times.
