Despite speculation that Ryan would be fired after this season, another well-connected source told ESPN that the atmosphere surrounding his status has turned from negative to positive.
It remains unclear whether Ryan will enter next season on the last year of his contract or whether the Jets will give him a contract extension, sources said.
Although Ryan has received consistent backing from Jets owner Woody Johnson, his support from first-year general manager John Idzik has been questioned. But to the surprise of many around the league, Ryan and Idzik have gotten along better than most anticipated.
Ryan started his five year career with the Jets on a high note, reaching the AFC Championship game his first two years with the team. Do you think the Jets should keep Ryan around for a few more years, or should they just cut their losses and find a new coach?
