Rex Ryan gets a Mark Sanchez tattoo -- sort of

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan was photographed in the Bahamas on Thursday sporting a tattoo on his right arm that depicts a woman wearing quarterback Mark Sanchez's jersey -- and nothing else -- the New York Daily News reported.

According to the report, the image of the woman resembles Ryan's wife. Complicating things even further, the woman in the tattoo appears to be Tebowing -- striking the prayerful pose on one knee made famous by Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow.

Ryan left Wednesday for a vacation in the Bahamas after finishing up a brutal season in which the Jets went 6-10 and were often painfully inept on offense.

Ryan's handling of the quarterback situation, from his nearly season-long support of Sanchez to his utter disregard of Tebow's potential as a starter, drew constant ridicule and left Sanchez's future with the team uncertain at best.

Tattoos, of course, are permanent.
