 FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets coach Rex Ryan defended his decision to spend Saturday at Clemson University with his son while NFL teams made cuts to set their 53-player rosters.
Ryan's son, Seth, is a walk-on at Clemson, which played Georgia at home. The coach says Monday that he spoke on Friday to ``several'' Jets players who were getting cut, and personnel decisions had been made before he left Saturday.
A photo of Ryan wearing Clemson gear at an airport was posted on Twitter, causing some to speculate as to whether the coach has input on roster decisions. Ryan says he was ``very aware of our situation,'' adding that he wanted to see his son play his first college game.
``I think `played' is not very accurate,'' he joked. ``I saw him stand there. But it was a great deal.'' Ryan added that he ``played Dad there for a day.''
