    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.

    The New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan and appointed head coach Adam Gase as interim general manager. This is quite shocking and unexpected, even by the Jets standards. Maccagnan still had two years left on his contract and if the Jets ownership really wanted to change things around, they should have fired him together with Bowles right after the season. Maccagnan, however, was retained and allowed to run the draft and go after free agents. So, this move has all the signs of internal power struggle within the Jets organization.

    One of the worst head coaching tenures in Jets history is finally over. The Jets have informed Todd Bowles that he will not be back in 2019, just a few hours after another embarrassing loss to the Patriots, 38-3. GM Mike Maccagnan, however, will remain with the team and be involved in the search for Bowles' replacement.

    After a grand total of four games in his professional career, Sam Darnold is getting not so rave reviews from the armchair quarterbacks and even a few of those who should know better. The shop talk is that the Jets should have stayed put at No. 6 instead of trading up to get Darnold at No. 3 which meant that New York could have saved their sixth, 37th, and 49th picks in the 2018 draft, plus the Jets’ 2019 second-rounder from going to Indianapolis. The assets that general manager Mike Maccagnan traded to move up three spots is certainly open for debate, particularly because New York is not a team on the precipice of greatness but rather one that’s on the cusp of mediocrity.

    According to various sources, the New York Jets are expected to hire Mike Maccagnan as their new general manager. Maccagnan, who's now a scouting director with the Houston Texans, is viewed as a very good talent evaluator, something previous GM John Idzik wasn't considered when the Gang Green hired him two years ago. Maccagnan, however, has no experience with salary cap management and contract negotiations.
