Jets front office rumors

NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Mortensen of ESPN has tweeted about a number of developments in the Jets’ process of staffing up their front office.

ESPN’s Todd McShay will not be joining the team.

My guess for the last week has been that McShay was pumping up his own chances to land a job in the media, and his hiring probably wasn’t going to happen. My guess now is that McShay realized he wasn’t going to get a job and is now pulling his name out of consideration to save face.

In other news, one rumored front office candidate received a promotion with his current employer and will not be changing teams at this time.

Weidl is reportedly well-respected, but the Eagles could have blocked the move of any front office candidate currently under contract anyway. It will be interesting to see how many members of the Eagles front office have expiring contracts and will jump to the Jets next year.

In another news, a runner up for the general manager job is under consideration for a front office role.

The rumors about Kelly joining the Jets front office after Douglas was hired have been swirling for weeks.
