Ryan To Jets: Stay Out Of Trouble

Wonder why Rex Ryan felt compelled to deliver this message to his New York Jets as they headed off for their bye week.

Relax. Be professional. Stay out of trouble. This is a team that has made news recently for the wrong reasons — i.e. Braylon Edwards’ drunk-driving arrest and Darrelle Revis’ speeding ticket.

“We try to do the professional thing,” Ryan told reporters. “Just be pros. We have a lot of great people here, but clearly, you want to make sure they know there is PlayerProtect (a free, 24-hour driving service) that is available, and to take advantage of that. They know they represent the Jets on and off the field, and I think that’s important to these guys. It’s something you remind them of. The number one thing is to be safe.”

You should not have to lecture grown men like high school kids on vacation, but these are NFL players. Ryan is right to worry.
