Saints News, 6/23/15: Rob Ryan recalls when brother Rex punched him out

From Nola.com: For this, go back nearly 30 years, long before the New Orleans Saints hired Rob as defensive coordinator and the Buffalo Bills hired Rex as head coach. The brothers at the time were inseparable enough for them to share not only the same wallet, but also the same car key. So, when Rob had a date with a lady and needed Rex to be a wingman, you can imagine Rob's surprise when Rex said no because he had already met Micki, the woman he would marry.
