When Rex Ryan was hired the future of the former staff was up in the air. A few members of Buffalo’s coaching staff were retained including special teams coordinator Danny Crossman. While final roster decisions often lie with the head coach, Crossman is confident that he and Ryan are on the same page when it comes to the importance of special teams.
“I feel that way and playing against coach Ryan every year with the Jets, they were always a team that had a pretty good (special teams) nucleus until kind of the last couple of years when their whole roster started to change,” Crossman told Buffalobills.com. “That will take care of itself. I’m a firm believer that the players who earn the right to be on the team and earn the right to get a uniform on game day they’ll be here. Who, how, that’ll take care of itself and it always does. Coach (Ryan) has been the head coach of some teams that have had some very, very good special teams so I don’t think that’ll be an issue whatsoever.”
During the spring practices Crossman was afforded a good portion of the practice time with his special teams units and he believes some final roster decisions will be made with special teams in mind.
