The New York Jets franchise are a train-wreck that nobody can seem to turn away from, because the accident continues to happen in different ways every year.
Earlier this week, the franchise suddenly parted ways with GM Mike Maccagnan and made head coach Adam Gase the interim GM.
Now the team is looking to fill a void at general manager before the start of the season.
Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson wants a “great strategic thinker” to run the football operation. He needs someone who can work with coach Adam Gase. And at the intersection possibly resides one and only one name.
Rumors are flying within league circles that the Jets may make a run at the future Hall of Fame quarterback who has periodically been linked to NFL management possibilities. And Gase, who worked with Manning in Denver, possibly would be one of the few guys who could draw Manning back into football.
It’s a nice dream to have, but the franchise is dealing with rumors of HC Adam Gase not wanting to sign RB Le’Veon Bell and give a huge contract which may have factored in the dismissal of the previous GM. Not to mention, this is a franchise that hasn’t qualified for the postseason since 2010.
