I know. This is just Rexy being Rexy, and we wouldn’t expect anything less.

Even though he can be annoying and obnoxious, as time has passed I think we’ve taken Rex Ryan’s quotes for granted. Hate him if you wish — and so many do — but we can all agree on this: in the sea of white noise that is the inconsequential post-game drivel when a camera is put in front of a head coach’s face, at least Ryan seeks to entertain.

Oakland Raiders v Seattle Seahawks

According to ProFootballTalk, the New York Jets have signed former Oakland Raiders’ running back Mike Goodson to a 3-year $6.9 million contract.


The Jets needed to fill a vacant spot in their backfield after the departure of leading rusher Shonn Greene, who signed with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday.

ESPN is reporting that the Jets may see Goodson as a possible number one running back because of his big play potential (he averaged 6.3 yards per carry), and his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield (he had 40 catches for 310 yards in 2010).

In 2012, Goodson had 221 yards on 35 carries while playing a limited role behind Darren McFadden.

New York Jets v Tennessee Titans

According to a tweet by Jason La Canfora, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed former New York Jets’ defensive end Mike DeVito to a 3-year contract worth $12.6 million, including $6.2 million in guaranteed money.

 

The 28-year-old DeVito, who had played his entire 7-year career with the Jets, had 52 tackles, 1.0 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in 16 games in 2012.

Jacksonville Jaguars v Buffalo Bills

It was rumored weeks ago when David Garrard held private workouts with the team, but the veteran quarterback made it official on Monday, taking to twitter to break the news.

Revis

ProFootballTalk is reporting that, although there haven’t been any solid negotiations, Darrelle Revis does not wish to be traded by the New York Jets.

The source insists Revis doesn’t wanted to be traded, hasn’t asked to be traded, and has never at any time during his career in New York intimated directly or indirectly a desire to be sent to a new team.

About a week ago, it was all but certain that Revis was on his way out of New York, and it still seems as though the Jets are leaning in that direction.

Kansas City Chiefs v Denver Broncos

With only about $8 million to spend in free agency, the New York Jets will take a ‘cost friendly approach’ to create competition for incumbent Mark Sanchez at the Quarterback position.

The New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta reports former Jacksonville Jaguar David Garrard, who worked out the Jets facility last week, and Brady Quinn are on General Manager John Idzik’s radar.

Quinn started eight games for the Kansas City Chiefs last season. The former Notre Dame star threw for 1,141 yards, two touchdowns and eight interceptions for a QB rating of 60.1.

When John Idzik became the new Jets general manager, pissing off his best player was surely his top priority. Bravo then, sir.

Whether the Darrelle Revis trade rumors leaked from inside the organization or not is irrelevant. What’s important is that when Revis appeared on NFL Network earlier this week he asked for answers regarding those rumors of his demise in New York, and he was frustrated by a lack of communication. The Jets aren’t a team that can have such a problem with one of the few sources of talent on their roster. Yet there was Revis last month, having to hear about his possible trade through the media instead of from his new general manager.

One way to fix the public perception of a problem is to put Rex Ryan behind a microphone and have him say a lot of things loudly. Or maybe that just makes it worse. So much worse.
