Jets announce they’ve finished interview with Joe Douglas


The Jets have interviewed another candidate for their General Manager job and many reports have indicated that he’s the favorite for the position.

Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas met with the team over the weekend and the Jets announced that interview was over on Sunday afternoon.

Douglas has spent the last three years with the Eagles after spending one year with the Bears in 2015. He was in Chicago at the same time as Jets head coach Adam Gase and the relationship between the two men has been seen as a lead reason why Douglas could wind up with the job.

Douglas worked for the Ravens for 16 years before making the move to Chicago. He was the team’s national scout when they drafted linebacker C.J. Mosley in the first round of the 2014 draft. Mosley made the move to the Jets as a free agent this offseason.

The Jets have also interviewed Seahawks co-director of player personnel Scott Fitterer and Saints director of pro scouting Terry Fontenot with Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly slated to interview this week.

  1. Far from train wreck jets are a couple moves and darnold growth from being a legit team. Now ur team on the other hand is a complete train wreck with nothing on the roster at all have fun

  2. Interesting that he left without decision made. The way everyone reported the interest by the Jets, I thought it would have been a done deal.

  3. The Jets hired Adam Gase as head coach and that’s proof there still a train wreck. All of that talent was brought in by McCagnon and Bowles. Where as Gase ran the Dolphins into the ground.

  4. Adam Gase is already a Jets Legend. He saw the stupid stuff the GM was doing and wasn’t going to take it. Whether Todd Bowles was too nice or too much of a team player–Gase was not going to go down that way. SO he called out Mac on his issues, and the acting owner figured out that the GM was really not doing a great job, and maybe didn’t spend his cap money where it should have gone (on a good center) or prior moves were mostly iffy. So not only is Mac gone, but jets get to pick a GM with little competition from other teams. ITs really not that bad a move in retrospect.

    I mean aside from a good obvious draft picks, Mac was not that much better than John Idzik, who turned 12 draft picks into 12 busts one year. (ok Quincy Euwana is ok, but 1/12 is not a good ratio!)
