Re: Jets tampered with Ryan ?
Florio has gone from a rumor mongering site to a rumor generator wannabe.
Maybe it's just me but if he had already been told he was not wanted and has already secured his next job maybe he did one after the other.
Who knows, he could have had permission.
There are certainly a few discrepancies and some questions here.
1) When did Rob Ryan know he was going to be fired?
2) Did he have permission to talk to the Jets?
3) If I was a player and they gave Ryan permission to interview, I'd be upset because it would mean his focus wasn't on the last game of the season.
4) If Ryan signed the contract while still under contract to the Raiders, it smacks of Bill Parcells-esque ala 1996. It is also tampering, unless, of course, he had permission, but I don't believe he is allowed to sign the contract. It would have to be a verbal commitment.
Moss is on the bubble!
Florio is increasingly falling into the gossip-monger's trap: he's all sanctimonious about teams and players Doing Right, but really he's desperately hoping for them to do wrong so he has something to act scandalized about. Sorry to disappoint you Mike, but "tampering" with a guy whose already been given his pink slip has to be the least scandalous scandal in town.
Tampering is the Jets' m.o.
