New, comments

From PFT.com: At a time when it was widely believed that Rex Ryan's first choice was the Falcons, it turned out that Ryan wanted to make a choice before the Falcons were ready to make a decision. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Rex was in a rush to get his situation resolved. And that resolution came by accepting the offer in Buffalo. In other NFL news, long time Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau will not return to the team in 2015.
