Rex Ryan on Josh Thomas' dis: 'I think it's kind of humorous'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Josh Thomas says the New York Jets coaches didn't give him much attention.

Well, that's certainly the case this week.

"I think it's kind of humorous," Rex Ryan said Friday, a day after Thomas told reporters in Detroit that a lack of attention from the coaching staff was one of his problems with the Jets.

Thomas spent a month with the Jets, but played in just one game before he was cut Tuesday and claimed by the Lions on waivers. His most memorable moment as a Jet came a day earlier, when he announced on Twitter that his playbook and his passport had been stolen.

The 25-year-old cornerback is with his fourth NFL team, and his third just this season. But he said the Jets were different.

"The young man has a right to his opinion," Ryan said. "But I've never heard it ever in my life. That's a new one for me."
