Joe Douglas agrees to terms with New York Jets for GM job

The Houston Texans and New York Jets may be fighting over general manager candidates over the next few weeks

The New York Jets hired former Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel, Joe Douglas, to be their new general manager Friday in a move that has been met with near universal praise. Naturally, they gave a glowing scouting report on Douglas.

Douglas joined the Eagles in 2016 and played a significant role in shaping the roster of the Super Bowl LII championship team.

Douglas previously worked with Jets head coach Adam Gase - who has been serving as interim GM - in Chicago during the 2015 season, when Gase was the Bears' offensive coordinator and Douglas was the director of college scouting.


It was unorthodox, but the Jets have the guy who is ready to lead them into the future.

The Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan in May. Mosley - reach the second and third years of their contracts. He held various posts with Ravens during that time, including national scout, Southeast area scout, East Coast area scout, Northeast area scout and player personnel assistant.

According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, Douglas is considering hiring ESPN's Todd McShay for a role on his staff. McShay is expected to speak with Douglas sometime in the middle of next week. McShay and Douglas played together in college at the University of Richmond and have known each other for almost 25 years.
