Rob Ryan reportedly close to deal with Rams

It looks like New York is only big enough for one of the Ryan twins after multiple reports Friday said  that Rob Ryan was nearing a deal with the St. Louis Rams as their defensive coordinator.

Rob Ryan was the Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator until he was fired Tuesday.  Ryan's dismissal, along with the New York Jets canning of defensive coordinator Mike Pettine and linebackers coach Bob Sutton prompted speculation that he might join twin brother Rex in New York.

Instead, reports now claim that he will join Jeff Fisher's team in St. Louis.

Rob preferred a defensive coordinator job with a team but that plan was unlikely with the Jets because defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman is expected to take that position.

Too bad.  The Rex and Rob show would have been a nice followup to Tebowmania next season.
