Report: Jim Harbaugh Unlikely to Go to Jets

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

Pete Thamel of SI says the Jets are an unlikely destination for Jim Harbaugh.

Given that Harbaugh rebuilt two teams into powers since that interview six years ago, maybe an owner would look back and realize he was wrong.

At any event, Harbaugh feels and has always felt like a longshot. It would require the Jets to pull off a very complex deal without any sort of leaks while not giving up too much. That sounds like a fridge too far.

The Jets and Harbaugh sound like any number of John Idzik free agency courtships. There was an initial vague story about the Jets possibly having interest without much action to follow.

Like Harbaugh or not, I tend to think this report is in all likelihood accurate.
