PLAYERS: Rob RyanJeff Fisher
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
Last night we reported that Rob Ryan had agreed to become the next defensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams.  Today Ryan has shot down that report as false according to Pro Football Talk.   ”I’m on a beach and have talked to nobody and have no comment.” Ryan who boasted after his firing that he would be unemployed 5 minutes, is still unemployed some 4 days later, for now.  Most reports are saying that Ryan to the Rams was a bit premature, but that he is the front-runner for the job Jeff Fisher has open, he just needs to get out of the ocean water.
