Rex Ryan Punked Sammy Watkins During His Conference Call with Jets Reporters (Audio)

Rex Ryan Punked Sammy Watkins

Rex Ryan punked Sammy Watkins during Watkins’ conference call with Jets reporters yesterday.

Does that seem strange to you, given that the New York Jets are 1-6 right now and Rex’s days as an NFL head coach are numbered? Because it shouldn’t. Being a serious human being is not what Rex Ryan is about. (Have you seen his tattoo of his wife wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey?)

So even in times like these, Rex keeps it loose. And yesterday keeping it loose entailed messing with Sammy Watkins ahead of this week’s Bills-Jets game.

You see, Watkins was a teammate of Rex’s son, Seth Ryan, at Clemson last year. So Rex knows him. And when he happened to be walking by the room where Jets beat reporters were having a conference call with the hot shot Bills rookie, Rex just could not resist. He went in, pretended to be a Jets reporter, and asked Sammy a question.

Obviously, it confused the hell out of him. Have a listen. The Rex Ryan question comes at the 5:00 mark:

I have to admit, that it pretty hilarious. I’m actually glad to see that being a terrible head coach hasn’t broken Rex’s spirit.

Hat Tip – []
