Rex Ryan Is Fine With Braylon’s Idiot Comment, Says He’s Been Called Worse

Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards must have a bit of good karma after all.  A week after calling the people who run the Jets(Rex Ryan) idiots, Edwards is back with his former team. 

Ryan was asked about the infamous twitter comments from Edwards and provided a surprising response.  According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Ryan is fine with the comments.

“There’s a lot of comments that get fired at me, so I’m OK with them,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “He knows what I’ve always thought about Braylon. I’ve always been a big fan of Braylon’s because I like the way he plays. So I think that comment . . . There’s things privately where I’ve been called a lot worse from players.”

Rex either really loves Braylon, or knows he needs to get to 9-7 and make the playoffs.  Braylon Edwards gives Rex a better shot at that and right now that’s all he cares about.
