Rex Ryan's remarks made to a fan in frustration after last Sunday's home loss to the New England Patriots will likely make him a little lighter in the pocket. According to Adam Schefter, Ryan is going to be fined as much as $100,000 for remarks he made to a fan after the 37-16 loss:

NFLL is expected to fine Rex Ryan between $75,000 and $100,000 for using profane language to fans at halftime of last Sunday night's game. - @AdamSchefter via Twitter

The incident in question came as Ryan was leaving the field following the loss. A fan near the tunnel reportedly yelled, "Hey, Rex, Belichick is better than you," to which Ryan responded with, "shut up," followed by an expletive.

This is not the first time that Ryan has been fined for his action. In February 2010 he was fined $50,000 by the league after being caught giving the middle finger to a fan during a mixed martial arts event in Florida.
