Did Rex Ryan just put a Bounty on Reggie Bush?

Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk.com has a story on how Jets head coach Rex Ryan wants his players to "put some hot sauce on him" when talking about  Reggie Bush. Here is the exact quote...

“Reggie Bush is, everybody knows, he’s a special player,” Ryan said. “He’s got great speed, that’s the first thing that jumps out at you. He’s shifty. He runs with a little more power than people give him credit for. . . . Obviously we have to do a great job of getting a lot of guys to him and then get him on the ground. Put some hot sauce on him, if you will.”

Not exactly sure what Rex is talking about here with the "hot sauce" quote but it sure as hell seems like he wants his defense to do some damage to Reggie Bush when he is tackled and on the ground. Didn't the Saints have their head coach and former defensive coordinator suspended for a year for talk similar to this? Rex better be careful with the language he is using here, this is no joke in the NFL anymore.

Maybe I am reading too much into this quote but it sure as hell seems like Rex wants his players to not just tackle Reggie Bush but do a little damage to him as well.
