Rex says Watkins calls for the ball a non-issue

In the wake of a story in which Sammy Watkins said he needs to be targeted more, head coach Rex Ryan was asked about Watkins’ comments. Ryan maintained that it’s not a big deal.

“First off the agent never called me or anything else,” said Ryan as the story claimed. “This just in he’s just like every other wideout. You know (Chris) Hogan just said the same darn thing, get me the ball, get me the ball. Look we all get it. The guy is a tremendous talent and he’s frustrated because he hasn’t played. He’s been out. He’s hungry and wants to be out there and be with his teammates and contribute. That’s the big thing. Get him the ball, that’s fine, but I’d rather he get it on the field than on the sideline.”

Watkins is questionable for Sunday’s game, but said there’s a “high chance” he plays Sunday against Cincinnati.
