The list of candidates for the New York Jets general manager job has apparently shrunk by one.
According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, New York Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross has pulled his name out of contention for the job.
Ross reportedly interviewed for the job last week before deciding he didn’t want to pursue the job further. Ross was one of nine candidates to have been linked to the job.
Remaining candidates for the Jets job include Dolphins assistant G.M. Brian Gaine, 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, Steelers director of football and business administration Omar Khan, Montreal Alouettes G.M. Jim Popp, Seahawks V.P. of football administration John Idzik, Jets assistant G.M. Scott Cohen, Packers V.P. of football administration Russ Ball, and former Broncos G.M. Ted Sundquist.
