Rex Ryan Supposedly Had Adam Sandler Recruit Nnamdi Asomugha to Jets

When you’re trying to land the biggest free agent on the market, you’ll go to almost any length to make it happen. For the New York Jets, that means playing the celebrity card.

NFL Network host Rich Eisen passed along a nugget Friday saying Jets coach Rex Ryan had celebrity fan Adam Sandler call free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha to recruit him.

Michael Lombardi, who reported the story, says Rex was trying to beat out his twin brother Rob (now the defensive coordinator for the Cowboys) to get Asomugha.

We all know how that turned out — Asomugha chose to sign with Philly instead, inking a five-year $60 million deal including $25 million guaranteed. Guess he wasn’t a big fan of Grown Ups either.
