Ryan's 'Hard Knocks' style has Richardson pumped

Rex Ryan didn't make his imprint on HBO's Hard Knocks until its sixth installment, but it was certainly a memorable one -- apparently more memorable to some than others.

The head coach's appearance back in 2010 with the New York Jets was Cyril Richardson's first exposure to the program, and Ryan's coaching style had him intrigued from the start.

Now, the 24-year-old will get a first-hand look at how things will run under Ryan's leadership in Buffalo, an opportunity that has him pumped for the 2015 season to get under way.

"I’m extremely excited," Richardson said via "Number one, I remember when I first started watching 'Hard Knocks' and they had the Jets on and I remember watching him do his thing, coach, talk about what he’s doing, talk about who he’s moving around, getting rid of. I thought it was the most entertaining 'Hard Knocks' and now he’s my coach.

"I can’t wait to meet him and the new staff and build off the moves we made in the offseason."
