Ikemefuna Enemkpali the player who punched and broke Jets QB Geno Smith’s jaw …was cut be the Jets immediately by the team was picked up by the Buffalo Bills who is coached by…Rex Ryan former Jets coach.
”I think it’s clear it was a mistake. Nothing justifies hitting somebody and all that stuff. And I’m not trying to say that it wasn’t a mistake,” Ryan said before the Bills opened an evening practice. ”But I also believe that he’s going to learn from this. And we’ll give him a chance to compete.”
Ryan recalled Enemkpali being a ”good teammate” in New York, and is confident he will be accepted by Bills players.
”Look at every person in that locker room, not anybody’s perfect,” Ryan said. ”But they know that I feel in my heart that this young man will be successful for us.”
”I want to apologize to the Jets organization, the fans, my teammates and the coaches. I apologize for what happened,” Enemkpali said, speaking at a podium placed beneath a goalpost on one of the fields of the Bills’ training camp facility in suburban Rochester.
”It should’ve never happened. I should’ve walked away from the situation,” he said. ”It was never my intention to hurt anybody.
It is easier to say sorry when he isn’t in the jets locker room any more and when he was picked up quickly by another team in this case the Bills. You know Rex Ryan takes delight in sticking it to the Jets. But what harm is he doing to his locker room when the player he brings in shows no respect for one of his teammates and sucker punches him and damaging the player and the team?
