Jets not Digging Doug? Rumor Says Gang Green not Meeting Douglas Demands

Everybody knows that the best way to negotiate a contract is through the media, so there’s no way this could possibly go wrong, right Jets fans?  

Jason McIntyre of Fox Sports Radio is reporting that the Jets and top GM candidate Joe Douglas aren’t on the same page as the team tries to lure him away from the Philadelphia Eagles.  The sticking point, according to McIntyre, is money.

New York Jets beat write Manish Mehta of the New York Daily news chimed in just a few days ago, saying that a fair offer from the Jets to Douglas would be in the $2.5 million per year range but if that’s where the Jets offer is, it’s apparently going to have to be a bit more.

After remaining completely silent on the matter for weeks, the Jets have reportedly leaked to the media that they’re upset over Douglas being rumored as the team’s “top choice”.  This could be a case of the Jets  preparing to lose out on Douglas while still being able to say they got “their guy” when a hire is eventually made.
