New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is said to be furious over the lack of arrivals so far in the off-season.

Ryan wanted to take Derelle Revis back to New York but the cornerback opted to join the New England Patriots, while Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie signed for cross-city rivals the New York Giants yesterday.

According to reports DRC paid a visit to the Jets before going to speak to the Giants, but the franchise failed to act quickly or decisively enough to get the 27-year-old. 

Indeed, according to According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, the Jets only offered him 'prove it' deal worth $6 million which played into the hands of the Giants.

That lack of action when it comes to bringing in a cornerback has left Ryan frustrated according to an unnamed 'friend' - who told the New York Daily News: 'Rex is p*ssed'.

The coach's frustration hints at trouble behind the scenes, with an employee at the Jets also telling Manish Mehta of the New York Times that the problems with player recruitment start with general manager John Idzik.

"He operates on his own time and schedule. Unbelievable," the employee is quoted as saying by Mehta.

So far the only arrivals of note for the Jets this off-season has been Eric Decker and Seattle Seahawks right tackle Breno Giacomini.
