Tony Dungy visits Jets, talks to Yankees

NEW YORK -- Tony Dungy said on Saturday afternoon that he visited the New York Jets earlier in the day "on a personal note."

The former NFL coach, who was at Yankee Stadium on Saturday to address the New York Yankees before their game against the Boston Red Sox, declined to say if he met personally with Jets coach Rex Ryan.

"You'd have to let him talk about that," Dungy told reporters. "I cannot say a word about that."

The Jets confirmed on Saturday afternoon that Ryan and Dungy met, but would give no details other than to say that Dungy will talk about it Sunday night on NBC's pregame show.

Dungy is an analyst for "Football Night in America" on NBC. The network will broadcast the Jets-Dolphins game.

Ryan drew criticism from Dungy for his use of profanity while being filmed for HBO's "Hard Knocks" series. Dungy said at the time that he was "disappointed with all the profanity ... I don't want to be around that. If I were in charge, I wouldn't hire someone like that."

Dungy went so far as to suggest that commissioner Roger Goodell should get involved.

Ryan fired back, saying he was disappointed that Dungy "unfairly judged" him.

"I've been a big admirer of Tony Dungy, and I'm sure a lot of people are, but he unfairly judged me, and that was disappointing to me," Ryan said at the time.

Ryan also called Dungy and left a message with the former Buccaneers and Colts coach, inviting him to spend time with the team. Ryan and Dungy later had a conversation that Ryan characterized as "man to man" in which Dungy accepted an invitation to meet with the team and Ryan.

"We look forward to having him come up and see what we're all about," Ryan said at the time.

He was probably there to say he'd love to have Braylon Edwards on his dream team that would include Mike Vick at QB, but Rex should watch his mouth.

yeah, if rex curses in front of dungy and the camera's even I can't defend him, that would be very dumb
