Rex Ryan slips and says he tried to trade for Odell Beckham Jr. during his rookie year hamstring injury.
The Bills head coach was trying to defend the notion that Sammy Watkins is not injury prone in an interview with SI.com.
“Has he missed a little time? Yeah. Big deal. He and everyone else. The [Odell] Beckham kid came out the same year, and he missed how many games with a hamstring issue? Believe me, I was trying to trade for him [with the Jets] when he had the hamstring. I was reading the [New York] papers, and I was like, ‘Well, hell, we’ll take him.’ But Sammy’s not even going to miss any time. He’s going to be ready to roll when it matters.”
Rex Ryan is instant entertainment. Besides, what could The Jets have possibly offered?
