Schefter: Joe Douglas Discussed as a “Potential GM” for the New York Jets

Let’s get it back to the Eagles.

Today the Jets fired General Manager Mike Maccagnan and Vice President of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger, promoting head coach Adam Gase to interim GM.

That has nothing to do with the Birds, but this does:

Douglas and Gase know each other from their Chicago ties. Douglas spent the 2015 season as the Bears’ Director of College Scouting while Gase was the Offensive Coordinator under John Fox.

Joe D has been with the Eagles since 2016 and helped construct the Super Bowl-winning roster. Obviously Howie Roseman has final say on personnel moves, so this would be a step up for Douglas, who is a prime candidate to eventually land a GM job somewhere else.

  1. He’s an idiot if he takes this job. The Jets are bigger mess than the Springfield tire fire.

    1. Turns things around, he’s a genius. Things go bad, it’s the dysfunctional Jets organization fault.

  2. Well, didn’t the Birds hire a young-up-and-comer Exec from the Browns last yr with the anticipation that Douglas may leave?
