Jets running back coach Anthony Lynn(right) has to get used to working with his son in a new way, as the Jets have signed his son D’Anton to a contract since the draft ended. He plays cornerback, and had interest from five teams, but the choice was easy for D’Anton.

“He wanted to play for Rex and be coached by (secondary coach) Dennis Thurman,” Anthony Lynn said. “To him, it was a no-brainer.”

D’Anton said that his Dad being here was a factor, but ultimately doesn’t think there will be an problems, since his Dad is working with guys on the opposite side of the ball. The young Lynn did his research as to what team would be the best fit for him if he didn’t get drafted, and the Jets were the choice, hands down. He wanted a chance to play in Rex Ryan’s defensive system.
