New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan made an appearance on 98.7 ESPN New York with The Michael Kay Show (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) and was asked if he’ll give Chad Johnson, Terrell Owens or Plaxico Burress a look.
“I think right now, with the way Mike Tannenbaum is and the scouting department, we look at all the possibilities and things, but I think the big thing, hopefully we can get Stephen Hill back soon and we think he is player with a bright future. We gotta get him back on that field. I like the way Chaz Schilens is playing. You look at Clyde Gates. Clyde Gates is learning the system and I think he is going to give us a little more and there’s a guy with world-class speed and I like the way Jeremy Kerley is playing, too. Hopefully we can get Stephen back soon and hopefully we get Santonio Holmes back sooner rather than later and I’ll feel good about it. I think we’ll all feel good about our receiving core, but certainly we look at every possibility.”
The Rex didn’t rule out the possibility of bringing in Johnson, Owens or Burress is that there might come a time this season where he’ll have no choice but to go out and sign one of them if the Jets continue to go down hill.
