Ryan Denounces Trade Talk

Oh thank goodness, the fact that I am apparently a terrible human is being vindicated. Per the New York Post, Rex Ryan has publicly denounced that the Jets are trying to trade Darrelle Revis.
“I know for a fact that we’re not actively trying to trade Darrelle Revis,” Ryan said Tuesday at the NFL league meetings in Phoenix. “At the same time, if somebody calls, you’re going to listen no matter who the player is — Darrelle Revis, Joe Montana, whoever.”
Ryan said he thought the reports were made up when it was first rumored the team was considering trading Revis.
“Everything we talk about is speculation,” Ryan said. “People are like, well, it’s a foregone conclusion. I don’t believe it. With that, I’m not naive enough … obviously, there are going to be several people that are interested in your good players, whether it’s Revis or anybody else. There’s always that.”
Phew! I’m sure that’s a load off everyone’s mind to get that cleared up!
