If I didn’t think Rex was taking a shot at the Patriots I might believe he believes what he’s saying.
The New York Post is reporting that Jets head coach Rex Ryan stated to 49ers reports that he will face the toughest tight end in the NFL this year, he just doesn’t play for New England.
“If you’re not looking at Vernon Davis, what are you kidding me?” Ryan said while listing the 49ers’ weapons. “The guy runs a 4.3, the best tight end, the No. 1 tight end in football, in my opinion. You got that Gronkowski kid, but this guy is a 4.3 speed guy.”
I guess Rex feelings were a little hurt when Gronk scorched the Jets for 8 catches 113 yards and 2 touchdowns in their second meeting last season.
