The disclosure of Rex Ryan’s wife-in-Sanchez-jersey-while-Tebowing tattoo could be having its intended effect, even if the effect wasn’t specifically intended.
According to Newsday, former Browns and Eagles G.M. Tom Heckert has canceled his interview for the vacant G.M. job in New York.
Bob Glauber of Newsday notes via Twitter that Heckert was concerned about the team’s cap situation, and not about having to work with Ryan. There’s a chance Heckert, who could be a candidate to join the Chiefs, is merely taking the high road.
Regardless, the wide net that the Jets have cast with the assistance of NFL headhunter Jed Hughes (who if he’s being paid by the hour has no incentive to keep the field narrow) may need to get a little wider.
