With the NFL’s silly season in full swing, things aren’t always necessarily what they appear to be.
So yes, the Jets — who have a vacant General Manager job – may have had some conversations with Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman, as reported this morning by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
But those conversations weren’t about Howie Roseman.
A league source with knowledge of the Jets’ thinking tells PFT that the only conversations they or their consultants had with Roseman were limited to their interest in interviewing Eagles pro personnel director Rick Meuller for the job.
Of course, at a time when the Eagles appear to be turning into San Francisco East in terms of internecine rivalries, the idea that Roseman was listening to others could always be used as a political chip, and might not be a perception he minds.
