NEW YORK, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he has ordered his players to behave more responsibly in the wake of several embarrassing incidents.
Ryan told reporters Wednesday he had a meeting with wide receiver Braylon Edwards, who was arrested for alleged drunken driving early Tuesday, and the rest of the squad telling them to clean up their acts, the New York Daily News reported.
"What I mentioned to the team was, quite honestly, I'm basically tired of dealing with some of these issues," Ryan said. "The issues that I see are … the embarrassment to our owner, to this whole organization. Whatever it is, we don't need to be that team."
The Jets also came under scrutiny by the NFL after a female television reporter said she was the subject of catcalls and boorish behavior this month when she attended in the team's training facility.
The Daily News said Edwards returned to practice along with two teammates who were with him in vehicle when it was pulled over in Manhattan's West Side, linebacker Vernon Gholston and tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson.
