Adam Gase Will 'Hand Pick' Jets GM After Mike Maccagnan Firing

Nick Mangold and Willie Colon in 2015

Le'Veon Bell is not anxious about reports that the running back and current New York Jets interim GM Adam Gase may be at odds now that Mike Maccagnan is out of the picture. "I want a great manager, a communicator, who can collaborate well with the building".

"It's more than a talent-evaluation guy", he told reporters Wednesday.

Florio says he believes these traits are exactly what Peyton Manning can bring.

Le'Veon Bell has yet to play a down of football for the New York Jets, though we already have some trade talk centering on the All-Pro running back.


Bell, whom sat out the 2018 season after he and the Steelers couldn't come to terms on a long-term deal, took to Twitter to respond to the notion that Gase didn't want him in NY, at least at that price.

The move came as a surprise because Maccagnan, who had two years left on his contract, was in charge of handling draft decisions and all of the offseason signings, including drafting quarterback Sam Darnold last year and securing running back Le'Veon Bell in free agency. After Maccagnan was sacked, Don La Greca, one of Kay's cohorts, ripped into Gase on a variety of fronts.

Manning was the starting quarterback in Denver for the last four seasons of his legendary career, working with Gase for three seasons as quarterbacks coach (2012) and offensive coordinator (2013-14). Also, La Greca sarcastically suggested Johnson was so smitten over getting a call from Manning, he immediately hired Gase.

Manning also talked about his relationship with Gase and how the two worked through his almost career-ending neck injury.
