Good morning, GGN! These are exciting times for Jets fans, as the team announced they are hiring Joe Douglas, former Eagles front office maven, as the new Jets general manager. Douglas is widely respected around the league and viewed as an excellent choice by the Jets. He gets a long six year contract, a significant commitment by Gang Green. We can only hope that in retrospect that original six year deal will be viewed as just the start of something great.

In other news, the Jets are bringing back long time Jets running back Bilal Powell for a ninth season in green and white. With Le’Veon Bell in tow this move is a fairly minor one; however, if Bell were to get injured it will be nice to have Powell ready to step into his familiar role as a top backup and spot starter, assuming Powell is fully recovered from his frightening neck injury.
