Former Miami Dolphins HC Adam Gase gains power with Jets

Former Miami Dolphins HC Adam Gase gains power with Jets”

He also spearheaded the Jets' free-agency shopping spree, which cost about $100 million in cap space for 2019, and also made six vital NFL Draft picks, including taking Quinnen Williams with the No. 3 selection.

Now, stunningly, he's out as the team's general manager. I will start a search for our new General Manager immediately.

Jets chariman and CEO, Christopher Johnson, released the following statement on Wednesday regarding the decision to fire the GM just three weeks after the NFL Draft.

"Mike helped to execute the strategic vision of the organization during the last four seasons and especially the past few months", Johnson said. There were some rumors, however, that there was tension between Maccagnan and Gase - which both denied. I don't know who decides that and gets to put that stuff out there, it kind of pisses me off a little bit because we have discussions on everything and that's our job.

The Jets also parted ways with vice president of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger, ESPN reported.

The draft-day misses landed Maccagnan squarely on the hot seat, and now the Jets will move forward with someone else making the personnel decisions.

Gase, the former Bears offensive coordinator, was sacked as head coach of the Dolphins on December 31 after two seasons in Miami. In New York, Gase was butting heads with general manager Mike Maccagnan but that has come to an abrupt end. He and the Jets were active in free agency before that, handing out long-term deals to running back Le'Veon Bell and linebacker C.J.

The Jets went 10-6 in their first season under Maccagnan and former coach Todd Bowles in 2015, but the team has struggled through three consecutive losing seasons since. The Jets also added wide receiver Jamison Crowder from the Washington Redskins and trade for offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele from the Oakland Raiders.

But Maccagnan's draft history since coming to NY is otherwise shaky, at best.
