Phil Savage and Chad Alexander among the rumored names who could join Joe Douglas’ Jets front office

NFL: NFC Championship-Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Now that the Jets have their general manager in place, focus will turn to the reshuffling of the front office that follows a big change. Some names have already popped up in rumors.

Savage is particularly notable since he is a former general manager in the league. He spent 2005 through 2008 holding the job with the Cleveland Browns. His tenure was not particularly successful, but I think in general it is a good practice for a first time head coach or general manager to have somebody on the staff who previously held that job. There are going to be things to pop up in this job that Douglas will never expect so it seems like a good idea to have a former general manager as a sounding board.

Alexander has spent two decades working in the Baltimore front office, which saw a lot of overlap with Douglas’ tenure with the Ravens.
