Where the Jets general manager search stands

New, comments
NFL: New England Patriots at New York Jets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s take a moment to recap the current state of the Jets general manager search.

.....................................

Three candidates have interviewed for the job so far.

Scott Fitterer (Seahawks)

Terry Fontenot (Saints)

Joe Douglas (Eagles)

.....................................

One candidate is interviewing on Monday.

Champ Kelly (Bears)

(This tweet was from Sunday.)

.....................................

One candidate rejected the Jets’ interview request.

George Paton (Vikings)

.....................................

At this point Douglas appears to be the heavy favorite.

.....................................

After the interview of Kelly is complete, the first round will be complete. A decision could follow soon. If the numerous reports signaling Douglas are correct, and he did a good job at the interview he could be offered the job within the next few days. If something unexpected happens, there could be a second round of interviews, or the Jets conceivably could expand the search.

We know some things at this point, but we await the big decision.
