Report: Joe Douglas to Jets “Done Deal”

NFL insider Tony Pauline provided an update on the Jets search for a new general manager in saying that Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel Joe Douglas a done deal” in a tweet that was sent out yesterday.

Any other candidate interviews is a case of the Jets “going through the motions” according to Pauline.  In Douglas, the Jets would be adding arguably the most respected candidate in over a decade. 

Recent GM’s have been number crunchers (Mike Tannenbaum and John Idzik) or in the case of Mike Maccagnan, a scout with less experience than Douglas, who has worked with the Eagles, Bears and on Ozzie Newsome’s staff in Baltimore for sixteen seasons.
