The Jets York Jets have found their new GM, as they reportedly agreed to a 6-year contract with Eagles executive Joe Douglas to become their general manager. When The Jets fired Mike Maccagnan on May 15, Jets chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson appointed head coach Adam Gase as the acting general manager and said he would “assist” in hiring Maccagnan's replacement. Gase and Douglas worked together previously for the Bears in 2015. Douglas will be the Jets' fourth GM in the last eight years.
Douglas has spent the past three years as the Eagles director of player personnel and played a major role assembling the roster that won the Super Bowl two years ago. He also spent 16 years with the Baltimore Ravens and was heavily involved in drafting QB Joe Flacco.
Just as his predecessor, Douglas will control the roster and will have final say on the draft and free agency, according to the Jets.
