Rex very involved in decision #nyj Dan Leberfeld

While John Idzik has final say on Jets personnel matters, Rex Ryan was heavily-involved in the decision to trade CB Darrelle Revis, according to the GM.

“I can say that ever since I’ve been here, Rex and I have been joined at the hip,” Idzik said. “All things that we do, they’re going to be collaborative. They’re going to involve everyone’s input. And certainly Rex was heavily involved in the discussion and the ultimate direction we headed. We discussed this often.

“When it deals with a player of Darrelle Revis’ stature, you’re going to think of every angle, and we did. We did so in this case, and it certainly involved Coach Ryan.”
