NEW YORK, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan had some fun at the expense of his twin brother, Cleveland defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, at a press conference Wednesday.

Rex Ryan and Jets were preparing to take on Cleveland Sunday, and in honor of the presence of his brother, Ryan impersonated his twin and rival, wearing a get-up that including a pillow stuffed underneath a Browns T-shirt, The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reported.

The Jets boss also wore a Browns hat with long, curly hair affixed to it.

"There is a bounty this week," Rex, as Rob, told reporters. "I know I'm going to hear from the league, but I'm placing a bounty on my brother's head. I am concerned some players will bounce off of him. I know I'm going to hear about it from the league, that is the truth."

The Star-Ledger reported Rex Ryan also got in a shot about his twin's weight, saying, "He should have had the lap band surgery when I did. That's clearly a mistake by him. He's now the big twin."
