ESPN is reporting that Oakland defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will be accepting the same position with the New York Jets, replacing Bob Sutton. It's a logical fit, as Ryan was Eric Mangini's first choice two years ago, but Al Davis refused to let Ryan leave. There is also a bit of a family tie-in, as Rob's father Buddy was on the defensive staff of Weeb Ewbank's Super Bowl winning club.
