Rex Ryan changes tattoo from Jets to Bills
Tuesday February 3rd, 2015

When Rex Ryan took the Bills' head coaching job shortly after being let go by the Jets, he had a lot to do to prepare for his new gig. One of his tasks was a little off the wall.

Ryan created quite a buzz when he revealed a couple years ago that he had a tattoo on his arm depicting his wife wearing nothing but a Jets jersey. Considering he's now in charge of a different team, Ryan knew that wouldn't fly anymore.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Ryan took care of that problem while he was in Arizona for Super Bowl XLIX, heading to a Scottsdale tattoo parlor to get his tattoo changed from green to Bills blue.

Ryan also made sure to donate all of his old Jets gear to the Salvation Army, so he'll have no more traces of his Jets past come the fall.

While all the surface stuff is nice, though, all Bills fans really care about is Ryan leading the franchise back to the playoffs for the first time since 1999.
