I mean to be fair if it was someone who hadn't played for Rex that'd be one thing, that would clearly be only a tweak move. You can argue he just wants one of his guys and someone who knows the system, but honestly Rex is just tone-deaf as much as anything. Now it's like he's trying to live up to a cartoon persona...they want to be a 'bully team' and bring in Incognito who bullied a teammate, Harvin who gave Golden Tate a black eye and now this in addition to the coach suspended for the first six weeks. Rex has become a caricature of himself.
this is who ryan always was. a clown.
