Jets' dysfunction has Greeny up in arms (2:08)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

WR Robby Anderson finally has signed his RFA tender — one year, $3.095M, as ESPN's Field Yates reported. As noted last week, Anderson and Rams LB Cory Littleton were the only RFAs with a second-round tender who hadn't signed. Restricted free agency ended April 19, so it was only a matter of time before Anderson got around to signing.

Coach/interim GM Adam Gase will "assist" in the search for a new GM, per Jets CEO Christopher Johnson. The favorite is Eagles VP of player personnel Joe Douglas, a a close friend of Gase. They worked together with the Bears in 2015, Gase as OC and Douglas as director of college scouting. They talk a lot of the phone, one source said. Douglas is a respected talent evaluator who got his start under former Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome. Champ Kelly, the Bears' assistant director of player personnel, is another potential candidate. So is Lance Newmark, the Lions' director of player personnel. The new GM will report directly to Johnson.

On the same day he was elevated to interim GM, Adam Gase showed everyone he's in charge. He agreed to trade LB Darron Lee, one of Mike Maccagnan's former first-round picks, to the Chiefs. All they got back was a 2020 sixth-round pick. For that return, they should've kept Lee. Look, we all know he hasn't lived up to expectations, but Lee could've been a nickel linebacker in sub packages. DC Gregg Williams is a creative coach and could've figured out ways to use him. His cap charge ($3.25M) wasn't prohibitive. This smacks of Gase delivering a message that a new sheriff is calling the shots.

Chiefs and Jets agreed to trade terms for LB Darron Lee, league source tells ESPN. A 6th-round pick in 2020 for Lee, per league source.

A few thoughts on Jets CEO Christopher Johnson, who spoke to reporters: He was in damage control, insisting this wasn't a power struggle and that the Adam Gase-Mike Maccagnan rift had nothing to do with his decision to fire his GM. (I'm not buying that.) Johnson emphasized the GM job involves more than talent evaluation, that he wants the GM to be a "great manager, a communicator, someone who can collaborate well with the building." Interesting. One of the complaints against Maccagnan was that he only cared about watching tape and didn't manage and integrate himself into the rest of the organization. I've been hearing that for a while. Still, this is a terrible optic for the Jets, who look like they're making it up as they go along.

Just months after NFLN Draft Analyst Mike Mayock took the Raiders' GM job, his replacement Daniel Jeremiah is under serious consideration for a prominent front-office position with the NY Jets, per sources. NFLN Draft Analyst job has become breeding ground for front-office jobs. Also worth noting that Eagles' vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas is close friends with NFLN Draft Analyst Daniel Jeremiah. A potential package deal for the Jets.

Jets fire GM Maccagnan, Gase to step in as interim (0:58)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

My initial takeaway on the firing of GM Mike Maccagnan: This is so Jets. Who lets a GM spend $125M in free agency and make the third pick in the draft only to fire him a couple of weeks later? It's amateur hour. They hired Adam Gase to work alongside Maccagnan, and now it appears Gase has won a palace coup.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Statement from Jets CEO Christopher Johnson: "This morning, I informed Mike that he was being relieved of his duties as General Manager of the team, effective immediately. Mike helped to execute the strategic vision of the organization during the last four seasons and especially the past few months. However, I came to the decision to make a change after much thought and a careful assessment of what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets."

Adam Schefter ESPN Senior Writer 

Jets have fired GM Mike Maccagnan and VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger, league sources told Jeff Darlington and me. Maccagnan had two years left on his contract. Jets are in position to have strong season thanks to Maccagnan and Heimerdinger. Adam Gase is the Jets' interim GM.
