  • Real Breaking News on Rex Ryan

    From espn.com:

    "Defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, who presided over the NFL's top-rated defense with the Baltimore Ravens in 2006, has been rewarded with a new, two-year contract and a salary more commensurate with the success he has enjoyed in his two years on the job.

    The contract, first reported by The Baltimore Sun and confirmed by team officials, includes salaries of more than $1 million per season. Ravens officials had been in discussions with Ryan about a new deal since the end of the 2006 season. There was just one season remaining on Ryan's previous contract.

    Ryan, 44, is the son of former NFL head coach Buddy Ryan. His twin brother, Rob Ryan, is the Oakland Raiders' defensive coordinator.

    "I'm excited about it," Ryan told The Sun of the new contract. "Now, I don't have to worry about finding another job as a coordinator. I can just go out and worry about kicking butt."

    A 13-year league veteran, Ryan was elevated to the coordinator position in 2005, and the Ravens' unit statistically ranked No. 5 in the league that season. Baltimore improved to No. 1 in the NFL in 2006, surrendering just 264.1 yards per game as the Raven posted a 13-3 record and won the AFC North crown.

    The Ravens were second in the league in sacks (60) and takeaways (40) and were first in takeaway/turnover differential (plus-17).

    Baltimore held the potent Indianapolis offense without a touchdown in a divisional-round playoff game, but still lost 15-6 to the eventual Super Bowl XLI champions.

    Ryan was a candidate after the season for the head coach vacancy in San Diego, and was said to have interviewed well, but the job subsequently went to Norv Turner. Ryan has said that his goal remains to be a head coach in the league.

    A defensive end at Southwest Oklahoma State, Ryan began his coaching career at Eastern Michigan in 1987. After stints at five colleges, he joined his father's staff with the Arizona Cardinals in 1994 and moved to the Ravens in 1999.

        Somehow I doubt that Ryan would have trouble finding any defensive coordinator position in the league if his contract had expired. We all know he is going to be one of the top 3 head coaching candidates next year.

        Nice to see Ryan get a well deserved one year raise before moving on.

              Not if we go 5-11, and the defense falls off, then he'll be the forgotten guy.

                  Anything is possible buddy, what if Ray and Ed Reed get hurt in preseason and miss the year that pretty much ends the season right there.

                      What are you talking about Ray not so much?

                      Our heart and soul, lets not forget how the Titans ran all over us when Ray missed that game last year, he is still the best MLB in the NFL he makes a huge difference.

                        While your points are true and valid, the reason the Titans ran all over us was mainly the injury to Mike Smith. He comes back healthy and if God forbid Ray goes down he can step up not to mention Suggs and Scott are pretty good leaders on that D as well.
