It looks like current Jets' number one quarterback Geno Smith may have some competition in New York next season, as Clemson QB Tajh Boyd admits he would love to play for Rex Ryan. 

Current Jets' number two QB Mark Sanchez is also reportedly very likely to leave the Big Apple in the off-season, with Boyd acting as the perfect replacement. 

It was reported Wednesday that Sanchez has been gaining interest from several NFL franchises, and now Boyd has been quoted as saying he would love to be coached by Jets' HC Ryan, who recently was offered a contract extension

“I would love playing for Rex,” Boyd told the New York Post. “That’s one of my favorite coaches. He’s very charismatic, a little sarcastic sometimes, but I love it. We’ve got a good relationship. I’ve been a fan of him. He’s been a fan of me for the past few years. Who knows what could happen in that situation? You’ve got to keep on pressing and grinding.”

Boyd is predicted to go high in the second-round of the draft, which would make it the second year running that Ryan and the Jets have selected a QB in the second-round, if they do indeed pick the Clemson QB. 

The move is all the more likely considering the speculation regarding Sanchez's position at the Jets. The former back-to-back AFC Championship player is still recovering from a year out with a muscle tear on his throwing shoulder. 

A mystery coach reportedly said, "We’d take Sanchez, he’d be the starter as soon as he walked in the door for us.”

We'll see how this all plays out in the next few months. One thing is for sure, it's not in the Jets nature to be boring.
