Rex Ryan ‘would not be shocked’ if Bill Belichick joins this AFC East contender

Bill Belichick is in need of a new head coaching gig, and the Buffalo Bills haven’t been able to get over the hump with Sean McDermott. Could Belichick and the Bills be a match made in heaven?

Rex Ryan thinks it’s a possibility.

On Monday, the former Bills coach made an appearance on ESPN’s “DiPietro & Rothenberg Show” and floated an idea that would keep the former New England Patriots coach in the AFC East with a possible Super Bowl contender.

“[The Bills] are so close, man. They are so close. They had a ton of injuries. They had all this type of stuff which they had—everybody has. Now, this is the craziest thing. This might be the spot where Bill Belichick goes,” said Ryan. “I’m just saying if ownership thinks you’ve taken this team as far as you can, which I’m not agreeing or saying that they should do it. But this could do it. Who could take this to the next level? Well, Bill Belichick. And I’m not saying it’s definitely going to happen, but I would not be shocked.”

Belichick joining the Bills would be a nightmare for the Patriots considering they’d have to face him twice a year.

On the other hand, it would be the perfect landing spot for the future Hall of Fame coach considering he’d already have an elite quarterback in place with Josh Allen. His ability to get the defense up and going again could be the turning point for the Bills.

Not only would Belichick be in a position to break Don Schula’s wins record, but he would have a legitimate shot at adding to his Super Bowl rings collection.
