Former Jets HC Rex Ryan mentioned on ESPN Sunday that they talked about trading up for Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr back in 2014.

“Not that we could have used you with the Jets,” Ryan said sarcastically, via Kimberly A. Martin of Newsday. “We talked about trading up to get him and [the decision was] ‘No, no, no, let’s just stay pat.’ Next pick he gets taken. The rest is history, and I’m sitting on this set.
