According to Dom Cosentino and Kristian Dyer:
Confirmed Jets have at least one in-house interview planned for GM: Rod Graves, their sr. dir. of football admin. (as @BrianCoz reported).— dom cosentino (@domcosentino) December 30, 2014
Interviewing Graves satisfies Rooney rule for Jets, which also applies to GM candidates.— dom cosentino (@domcosentino) December 30, 2014
Obviously, it's impossible to tell how serious any of these candidates are, but it's clear the New York Jets are doing their homework. Lynn was the assistant head coach, and Graves the assistant general manager. Even if the team isn't serious about either candidate, and I don't know if they are or aren't, I think this is at least the courteous thing to do. It may help them build some buzz about their names so they can get jobs elsewhere.
