NY Jets fire general manager Maccagnan

  • Christopher Johnson Adam Gase and Mike Maccagnan

"This morning, I informed Mike that he was being relieved of his duties as General Manager of the team, effective immediately", Johnson said in a statement.

NY hired Gase, who had just been fired by the Miami Dolphins, to replace Bowles, and also signed free agent running back Le'Veon Bell to a four-year contract. Johnson goes on to justify today's choice "what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets".

Gase was irritated by the suggestion there were problems between the two when asked about the reports, saying last Friday: "I don't know who decides to put that stuff out there".

Now serving as the Philadelphia Eagles VP of Player Personnel, Douglas has been with the Jets neighbors to the west since 2016, helping them to a Super Bowl chip a year later. Now, under head coach/interim GM Adam Gase, the Jets have finally moved on from Lee.

When asked if his future will become clear after the Europa League final against Arsenal on May 29 he added: "I think so". They also pipped another London club, Tottenham, to the third spot in the Premier League.

The Patriots and Jets will play in Week 3 at New England and Week 7 in NY this season. "It kind of pisses me off a little bit".

Maccagnan compiled a 24-40 record during his tenure as Jets GM, with the team slumping to 4-12 last season.

Gase was hired this off-season following the dismissal of Todd Bowles as head coach. However, Gase and Maccagnan reportedly disagreed on quite a few things, one of those being the acquiring of Jets running back, Le'Veon Bell. The Jets also added wide receiver Jamison Crowder from the Washington Redskins and trade for offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele from the Oakland Raiders.

Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas could emerge as a candidate, Schefter suggested.
