Tom Gamble of the 49ers’ organization has emerged as favorite to land the Jets’ open GM position.
Gang Green are beginning to interview GM candidates to find Mike Tannenbaum’s replacement.
The Pro Football Writers Association of America is “satisfied” that the Jets are following the “spirit of the rules” in making coach Rex Ryan and owner Woody Johnson available to the media next Tuesday, rather than within the seven-day period required by the NFL.
The new general manager will not be able to run the Jets as he sees fit. The new general manager will have to live with Ryan as head coach for another season. That means the Jets’ rebuilding project will take a full year longer than it should.
With head coach Rex Ryan reportedly relaxing on the beaches of the Bahamas, Johnson is set to start interviewing potential general manager candidates on Friday.
The Jets are headed toward a violation of the NFL’s media policy by not making Ryan or other team executives available within a week of the end of the regular season.
To say that Brown has earned a permanent starting spot in the Giants’ secondary next year is a gross understatement. The man has been a virtual turnover machine since stepping in full time on October 7 against Cleveland.
With his general manager gone, Ryan — the NFL’s loudest, proudest head coach — is suddenly nowhere to be found.
Does Chan Gailey care when you lose your $30,000-per-year gig, that you were living check-to-check before massive layoffs? Does Mike Tannenbaum care that you can’t afford the COBRA premiums to keep your kids with health insurance?
According to FoxSports, the Jets have contacted the Atlanta Falcons to ask for permission to speak with Dave Caldwell, their director of player personnel.
Johnson owes all those PSL owners a strong GM. We’ll see now whether one of these guys steps forward to become that person.
The two players are among the Jets’ biggest uncertainties heading into next season, with Sanchez coming off a miserable year and Revis recovering from a serious knee injury while also having a sticky contract situation.
As expected, Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum was given a one-way ticket out of the big top on Monday morning.
Tannenbaum delivered a farewell address on Monday to the group of men he signed, traded for or drafted over the last seven years as the team’s GM. And he choked back tears as he read it.
If Rex Ryan thinks he can breathe easy because he was not let go on Black Monday, he should think again. Ryan has bought himself one more year — and that’s it. If he doesn’t think so, he should pick up the phone and call Lovie Smith.
