FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan put the red light on a color-coded system to help Geno Smith.
A few hours after saying the New York Jets are considering using a wristband with plays designated by color — red, yellow and green — the coach said in a radio interview Wednesday he doesn’t plan on doing it now.
The Jets, trying to help cut down on turnovers in games, used the same method during Mark Sanchez’s rookie season in 2009 to help him determine how aggressive he can be on a given play.
During his news conference, Ryan said the team hadn’t planned anything specific to aid Smith just yet, but added that using the color-coded wristband was a possibility. He later told ESPN NY 98.7 that he changed his mind.
