Rex Ryan Says Jace Amaro Is 'Full Of S---,' Vows To 'Try To Kick S---' Out Of Jets

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Rex Ryan is fired up.

The Bills' coach -- who was fired by the Jets following the 2014 season -- has responded to tight end Jace Amaro's recent comments regarding a lack of accountability under Ryan in Florham Park

Let's just say that the outspoken coach didn't appreciate them, and he wasn't shy about pointing that out.

"He's full of s---, and I'll remind him of that when we play him," Ryan told The MMQB. "Look, we weren't perfect, and I never said we were going to be perfect. But that's a f---ing B.S. comment. But, hey, he's happy that he's got a different coach in place. We'll see how happy he is when I play against him."

On April 6, Amaro praised new head coach Todd Bowles on SiriusXM NFL Radio, and in the process took a shot at Ryan.

"He's not really playing around with everyone being late," Amaro said of Bowles. "We had an issue with that last year. Guys just weren't accountable last year as much as they could be. I think that's the biggest thing. He's making sure everyone's gonna be 100 percent in or he's not going to be on the team."

According to, after Ryan made his comments Amaro tweeted "Game On Then."

The tweet has since been deleted.

"I want success for Woody Johnson, I do," Ryan told The MMQB. "But don't kid yourself. We're gonna try to kick the s--- out of them when we bring our team in. We're going to try to whip your a--. There are people in that organization who are going to be lifelong friends to me. But this is my damn football family now."
