Rex explains why he's going upstate for TC

Here is Rex Ryan's explanation for why he's taking the Jets to upstate New York for training camp.

"I had a vision for this football team – any team I was going to be the head coach of - I like having training camp away from your facility," said Ryan. "It has nothing to do with our facility or getting out of Florham Park…. I love it here. These facilities are better than anybody's in the league. It is about getting away. Getting away from the comforts of this place, of the surrounding areas, where their homes are, and putting them in a camp situation where all they have are each other. (It won't be) someone going in this direction and someone going in that direction. There is nothing else. We are just going to be together. We are trying to build the chemistry of our football team in training camp. That is the number one thing. I see that as a huge plus for us if we are able to do that."
