Philadelphia Eagles exec linked to open New York Jets GM job

The New York Jets are once again a sh-tshow.

"Mike helped to execute the strategic vision of the organization during the last four seasons and especially the last few months", Jets chairman Christopher Johnson said in a statement. The Athletic suggested in April that Maccagnan could be on the hot season.

Maccagnan, who had two years left on his contract, was instrumental in the team drafting Sam Darnold last year and was part of the group that selected Gase to become the franchise's new coach after Todd Bowles was sacked.

But Gase, however, downplayed any rumors of clashes as recently as Friday.

Magnitude 7.7 Papua New Guinea quake raises tsunami threat
An alert for tsunami waves reaching 0.3 to 1 meter above the tide level was issued for some coasts of Papua New Guinea. There were no initial reports of serious damage but the full picture may not become clear until daylight.

Gase was irritated by the suggestion there were problems between the two when asked about the reports, saying last Friday: "I don't know who decides to put that stuff out there. We have discussions on everything".

The New York Jets announced the firing of general manager Mike Maccagnan today, as well as his right-hand man, VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger. He and the Jets were active in free agency before that, handing out long-term deals to running back Le'Veon Bell and linebacker C.J. Maccagnan was hired in 2015, days before the franchise hired Gase's predecessor, Todd Bowles.

"Very highly thought of, close with [Adam] Gase and another personnel guy on the rise that is a name to keep an eye on here", Rapoport said of Kelly, who has an incredible story of inspiring kids through his charity camps after watching his own mother battle addiction and his dad spend time in jail for dealing drugs. The Jets also added wide receiver Jamison Crowder from the Washington Redskins and trade for offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele from the Oakland Raiders.
