It’s been difficult to keep track of the various candidates for the Jets G.M. job because, well, there are just too many of them.

There’s another one who previously had been unknown.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that former Saints and Dolphins G.M. Randy Mueller was interviewed for the job.  He’s the third former General Manager to interview, with former Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo and former Broncos G.M. Ted Sundquist also being considered for the job.

Mueller has served as a Senior Executive with the Chargers since 2008.  He was considered for the Colts G.M. position in 2012.

Per Mehta, the Jets apparently will not be hiring Mueller, Angelo, or Sundquist.

    Please Jets hire this qualified candidate! His ultimate trade of all time includes trading Wes Welker to the Pats for a mere 2nd round pick! This guy is a genius! This guy makes Jeff Ireland look like a a ballboy for the Bears!!

    Randy was tired about being overlooked for executive positions because he was 23 years old, so he decided to do something about it.

    Maybe Rex is just gonna wear two hats and be GM and coach? I would say ownership should be losing some sleep over the decision of keeping Rex as HC.

    Betcha they would have had a GM by now if they would have fired sexy Rexy and hired a GM first and let him pick the HC and then told him he has free reign picking his new QB also.

    And Harpo Marx, too

    So who do they fire when Rex can’t get it done again?

    Hiring a bean counter as opposed to a personnel/scout talent evaluator will cause the Jets continued long term mistakes

    Best GM out there. It’s a joke he’s not working.

    During his time with the Saints, Randy Mueller did good work shuffling contracts around, making trades and drafting talent. Genius stuff with the cap. We had great confidence in him and I was sorry to see him go.

    Given the current mess the Jets have, he would be a desirable hire as GM but he’s going to demand say-so. Of course the tricky question is whether or not he’d fit in between Johnson and Ryan.

    I think Mueller taking the job would signal that some sanity is returning to the organization.

    Matt Millen, prepare for your second chance.

  13. yertman says: Jan 18, 2013 8:35 AM

    Matt Millen is still out there.

    The gift that keeps giving!

    I hope the owner Johnson is smart enough to hire him. Silly Mia. never use Wes Welker as wide-receiver.He was always used a kickreturner. If Randy Mueller was the Jets’s GM six years ago or more we would still have Woodhead. He would have taken Wes Welker away from Mia.

    Is Don Shula too old for the Job. This guy knows how to pick great players. He’s always been in the playoffs.

    Why do the same deadbeats keep getting these opportunities?!?

    Feel free to hire this man, Jets. He is a wonderful GM.
