Jets general manager Joe Douglas spoke to the media today at his season ending press conference.
Safety Marcus Maye is set to become a free agent this offseason. The general manager said re-signing him is a priority.
On Jets Team MVP @alldayMAYE, Jets GM Joe Douglas says, "Bringing Marcus back will be one of the priorities for our offseason."— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) January 5, 2021
Aside from that comment, Douglas as as non-committal on most topics as you would expect a GM entering a critical offseason to be. Douglas didn’t show his hand on the future of Sam Darnold, the team’s coaching search, and other topics.
Asked if Darnold regressed, Douglas lists challenges — injuries, lack of chemistry with WRs, etc. Says he played well in December. Likes his future. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) January 5, 2021
