New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has been hiding a secret up his sleeve and it involves his wife and embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez.
It's a racy tattoo on his right arm depicting his wife, Michelle, wearing nothing but a green Jets jersey bearing the number '6' - an unmistakable reference to Sanchez.
The tattoo was revealed in a photo by the New York Daily News as Ryan, who typically sports a long-sleeved white tee and green sweater vest that would cover the ink, vacationed shirtless in the Bahamas.
He was photographed on a swim with his wife and sunbathing poolside. The Daily News ran a front-page photo Friday and by lunchtime it was an Internet sensation.
USA Today called the tattoo 'the worst use of ink by a member of the Jets since the team signed Sanchez to a contract extension that guaranteed him $8.25 million in 2013,' and ESPN referred to it as 'Tattoo-Gate.'
That's pretty much the way the NFL team's soap-opera season played out.
Ryan was criticized for sticking with Sanchez despite losing efforts when Tim Tebow was available.

Just what every man wants. A tattoo of his wife wearing another man’s number.
LMAO dumbest thing I ever heard of.
What a freak.
Yes, that is my opinion as well. What kind of dumbazz does that?
50 bucks says it’s fake....
It's a rich guy's joke ~ Mitt would have understood it even if the Mittbots didn't have a clue.
Please, God, MAKE TATTOOS GO AWAY.....
Based on the photos via the link... It looks real....and a real crappy tat at that...looks like a cartoon...
Ryan also got some serious man boob going on as well....
Jet fans should be pissed....
This is an example of the new American culture.
We have no God and thus no common sense.
The image of the girl in the tattoo appears to be doing Tim Tebow’s move. Whoever did the work wouldn’t last long on Inkmaster.
Yes, rich bankers are getting tats depicting their wives wearing clothes that identify their employees. Happens all the time.
New “reality” show: The Toe-Sucker’s Wife
Not everyone gets a tat ~ but those who do frequently give away their major interests in their lives ~ things they’ve bought!
He didn’t care about the jersey as long as her feet were in the picture. He is a sick man.
(for those of you who don’t already know, Coach Reid has a foot fetish)
Kinky, creepy and sicko freaky. Threesome?
Explains his reluctance to change qbs
Can you see this kinky coach showering with this tattoo showing to his players — AND then justifying to them and the sports reporters that #6 is still his man despite his performance problems???
This might just be a Viagra commercial: Next time try Viagra — not a Tattoo.
Does he also have the infamous “butt fumble” on his derriere? :)
He is a dirty, filthy slob. I wonder what Vince Lombardi would have made of a lowlife like this.
How can you tell it’s his wife? It looks like a low budget cartoon. You’d think he could afford a Von Kats job.
That's what I'd like to know...how can you look at that crude cartoon and conclude it looks like any particular woman? Did he get tattooed by a middle-schooler?
If it’s not his wife, then he’s in bigger trouble than first thought.
The Jets are a freak show.
No wonder Ryan never gave Tebow a chance.
Fire Rex Ryan
I don't think that's Tebowing. I'll try to keep this PG, but I suspect if you turn that tattoo 90 degrees counterclockwise that's the "position" in which it's intended to be viewed. Which would make it even more disturbing.
Mike & Mike on ESPN radio sure had some fun with it.
I heard it too. Enjoyed Golic’s comment that it had to be a fake, because Ryan was reading a book in the picture. Classic!
Got to love the favoritism and throw Tim Tebow under the bus. I would not want to be a QB for that coach !
It's a racy tattoo on his right arm depicting his wife, Michelle, wearing nothing but a green Jets jersey bearing the number '6' - an unmistakable reference to Sanchez.Or, maybe he thinks of himself as Mark Sanchez' bitch.
The coach may be saying more about his wife (and himself) than he should.
I’m a life-long Giants fan, and pissed that we blew a three game lead in the NFC East and missed the playoffs. Inexcusable. But when I see the three ring circus that is the New York Jets, I realize things could be much, much worse. Pretty safe bet that Tom Coughlin doesn’t have a tattoo of his wife wearing an Eli Manning jersey.
And amazingly, Rex STILL has his job and the Jets are on the hook to pay Sanchez $8 million next year. As the prophet Bugs would say, “what a bunch of maroons.”
Ironically, Vince Lombardi's father, Harry Lombardi, was covered with tattoos:
"The ornamentation of his flesh is what truly announced Harry's presence. He was covered with tattoos. They rose up from his forearms, a swirling blue and red mural. . . . He even had messages tattooed onto his hands, one letter per finger in a row above his knuckles." (page 15 of "When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi")
That would be Coach Ryan. Don't denigrate our new coach.
