According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson may not be as devoted to head coach Rex Ryan as much as people think.
Ryan was painted as the owner’s pet two weeks ago at the previous one-week-after-the-fact news conference. In the season-ending presser, Johnson acted like 6-10 never happened. He professed his faith in Ryan, even saying the embattled coach (so we thought) would participate in the GM selection process. Johnson was sharply criticized for what was depicted as a Rex crush.
Behind the scenes, Johnson has been giving off a different vibe. While he admires Ryan’s innate leadership skills and his ability to relate to players, Johnson isn’t blind to the other stuff, according to people familiar with his thinking. As one person said, “He’s tired of the circus.”
When Ted Sundquist interviewed for the Jets’ general manager position he got a different impression of Ryan from Johnson than he thought he would.

WHAT A MESS
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan reportedly wrecked his Mustang after getting into a collision when he ran a red light last week.
The New York Jets have fired offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo, and hired former NFL punter Louie Aguiar as an assistant as Rex Ryan filled out his coaching staff.
The team announced Tuesday that DeGuglielmo would not return after one season, and will be replaced by tight ends coach-assistant offensive line coach Mike Devlin. The Jets also announced that assistant tight ends...
NO MAN IS AN ISLAND
Current Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis took to Twitter to express his disbelief regarding rumors that the team might be looking to trade him.
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has officially announced the expected hirings of Marty Mornhinweg as his offensive coordinator and Dennis Thurman as the team's defensive coordinator.
Ryan also announced Thursday that David Lee was hired as the team's quarterbacks coach, replacing Matt Cavanaugh, and Tim McDonald will be the Jets' defensive backs coach.
ST. LOUIS Well so much for the Rams and coach Jeff Fisher having a defensive coordinator that hasnt been in the news lately.
A year after the Rams hired well known and respected defensive coordinator Gregg Williams only to have him never coach a game due to a suspension stemming from the bounty gate scandal they hired another character to replace him.
The Rams hired former Cowboys...
Matters appear to be getting particularly nasty in the impending divorce between Sale Johnson and Ahmad Rashad. Last week we shared the story that the two were getting divorced, and that Johnson didn’t like Rashad hanging out with Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, whom she considered to be bad influences. The latest report says that Johnson is banning her soon-to-be ex-husband from...

8) Promised to smuggle some WRs with him on the way out of Philadelphia

Like the rest of us, Darrelle Revis has caught wind of the reports that the New York Jets are exploring the possibility of trading him this offseason. On Thursday afternoon, the three-time All-Pro took to Twitter to share a brief thought about the rumors:
I’m speechless by far but more importantly I feel more upset for the jet nation for having to go through this!!!
You’d be hard pressed to find another team in the NFL that is in as much current disarray than the New York Jets. The Jets have been dysfunctional for the last two seasons and the situation does not seem to be calming down anytime soon. Yesterday, news broke that Jets owner Woody Johnson told a general manager candidate that QB Tim Tebow was forced on him last season. Excuse me...
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson claims that he was forced to trade for quarterback Tim Tebow. It now sounds like he wasn’t telling the truth.
According to the New York Post, even though it was former general manager Mike Tannenbaum’s idea to acquire Tebow, Johnson owns the team and could have easily put his foot down and blocked the move.
A league source with direct knowledge...
“Oh man, this Kidz Bop album is dope.”
Last we heard of the New York Jets and their second- and sometimes-third string quarterback, Tim Tebow, owner Woody Johnson was trying to convince us that he was “forced” into making a trade with the Denver Broncos to acquire the eventual inspiration for Skip Bayless’ sex doll. Because if we’ve learned anything in this silly little...
Sources close to New York Jets
owner Woody Johnson have told ESPN that the Jets’ owner is open to trading arguably the best cornerback in the league this offseason.Speculation is because he only has 1 more year left on his contract. The Jets are $19 million over the cap, and Revis’ contract pays him $6 million next year. To make things worse for the Jets, Revis has a “non-franchise...
