Rex Ryan Praises Mike Devito

The Jets allowed starting defensive end Marques Douglas go to division rival Miami. Rex Ryan gave an indication at his press conference as to why, stating his belief young lineman Mike Devito is ready for a bigger role. Gang Green Nation reacts:

Devito quietly turned himself into a valuable part of the rotation last year. If you believe Pro Football Focus (which admittedly at times doesn't tell the whole story), Devito was the 7th best interior lineman in the league last season. That might be overstating it, but he was really impressive. Back in 2008, he was too frequently sealed on run plays.
