Former Cardinals GM Rod Graves has accepted a front-office position with the Jets.
Graves has been named "senior director of football administration." It's a fancy title for "assistant to GM John Idzik." Graves built the Cardinals into a Super Bowl contender in the late-2000s, but was undone by disastrous choices at quarterback in the post-Kurt Warner era. GMs are recycled far less often than head coaches, so Graves could have a hard time getting another head job. Mon, Jun 10, 2013 10:31:00 AM

Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum is becoming an agent, and will represent football and basketball coaches in both the pro and collegiate ranks.

It's a fitting move for a GM who was always accused of being more of a lawyer than talent evaluator. The career shift makes it unlikely Tannenbaum returns to an NFL front office, at least in the near future.

Updating previous items, new GM John Idzik will have final say over New York's 53-man roster as part of his responsibilities with the Jets.

The Jets' fourth GM in 13 years, Idzik's background is primarily in salary cap management and business decisions. He has minimal experience with player evaluation or scouting. As ESPN New York has put it, the Idzik hire is an "extension of the Mike Tannenbaum model," with essentially a cap guy controlling player acquisition. The Tannenbaum model didn't work out so well, to put it mildly. Rex Ryan will not have increased personnel control. Either way, it's easy to see why the Jets had such a hard time getting anyone to take their GM job.

Jets hired Marty Mornhinweg as offensive coordinator.

Mornhinweg spent the past seven seasons as Andy Reid's offensive coordinator in Philadelphia. He will replace Tony Sparano's spitball offense with a West Coast, pass-first system that will be very different from what the Jets have run in recent years. Mornhinweg's hire will be less impactful than the offensive roster moves the Jets make this offseason. They need better players. If Michael Vick is released by the Eagles, as expected, it will be interesting to see whether he reunites with Mornhinweg in New York. The NY Daily News reported in mid-December that Jets head coach Rex Ryan "loves" Vick.

Jets hired former Seahawks VP of Football Administration John Idzik as general manager.

Although Idzik dabbled in personnel evaluation under John Schneider and Pete Carroll in Seattle, his primary strength was salary-cap management, similar to old Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum. The Idzik hire means coach Rex Ryan should have almost complete control over the Jets' roster, which will be viewed in many circles as a risky proposition. Ryan is a football coach, not a scout. And Idzik isn't a scout, either. The Jets' roster has deteriorated so suddenly over the past 3-4 seasons because they've struggled mightily with player evaluation.

The Jets interviewed Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi for their offensive coordinator vacancy on Wednesday.

Lombardi also interviewed for the head-coaching job at Southern Miss "a few weeks ago." He's been on the Saints' staff since 2007, coaching quarterbacks for the past four seasons. Joe is the grandson of Vince Lombardi. The Sideline View's Adam Caplan expects him to have a "very strong shot" to be an offensive coordinator in 2014.

The Jets are interviewing former Browns coach Pat Shurmur for their offensive coordinator opening on Friday.

Shurmur would bring a West Coast system to the Jets, a departure from Tony Sparano's spitball offense. Mark Sanchez's inaccurate passing would be a poor fit in Shurmur's system. The Jets will almost certainly pursue a major quarterback upgrade in the spring. Rex Ryan is guaranteeing Sanchez nothing for 2013.

Seahawks VP of Football Administration John Idzik and Steelers administrator Omar Khan are the two official finalists for the Jets' GM job.

In-house candidate Scott Cohen, ex-Bears GM Jerry Angelo, and ex-Saints GM Randy Mueller have been passed over. The position is expected to go to Idzik.

The Jets interviewed former Saints and Dolphins GM Randy Mueller for their general-manager vacancy last week.

Mueller was fired by Bill Parcells from the Dolphins in 2007 and hasn't served in the same capacity since. He's not considered a candidate for the job now that it's been narrowed down to John Idzik, Omar Khan, and Scott Cohen. Mueller was one of three retread general managers to interview for the position.

Seahawks cap guru John Idzik has emerged as the favorite for the Jets' general manager job.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Idzik has overtaken in-house candidate Scott Cohen and Pittsburgh's Omar Khan as the "clear frontrunner" to replace Mike Tannenbaum in New York. Schefter reports Idzik could be offered the job "as early as tonight." Idzik's title with Seattle is "VP of Football Administration." He has little to no background as an evaluator of personnel and talent.

Newsday reports that Ravens OC Cam Cameron will not be the Jets' next offensive coordinator.

Either Cameron took himself out of the running (less likely), or the Jets have narrowed their search and are closing in on a hire. Late in his Ravens tenure, Cameron's offense became archaic and he refused to adjust. He may be best served sitting out a year and picking up some nuances by simply watching games.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Jets will decide who will be the team's next general manager on Thursday.

The Jets wrapped up their final interview with Seattle's John Idzik on Wednesday night, and he is considered a finalist along with Pittsburgh's Omar Khan. Trailing behind those two by what is considered a wide margin is incumbent assistant GM Scott Cohen. None of the three would be classified as "name" hires, but after being spurned by several other candidates, the Jets are just trying to get the process complete.

ESPN New York reports the Jets could hire a new GM as early as Thursday, and that Seattle's John Idzik and Pittsburgh's Omar Khan are the favorites.

Idzik and Khan were both given second interviews this week. Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen is also a finalist, but the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports New York wants to go with an "external candidate." That could mean problems for coach Rex Ryan down the line.

The Jets will interview John Idzik for their general manager vacancy Wednesday.

The Jets can't seem to give this job away. Idzik is currently the Seahawks' vice president of administration, overseeing contract negotiations and the salary cap. He joins a candidate list that includes incumbent assistant GM Scott Cohen, ex-Bears GM Jerry Angelo, and Steelers cap guru Omar Khan.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist was "particularly impressive" in his Thursday interview and is a "sleeper candidate" for the same job with the Jets.

Sundquist, 50, has been out of the league since the end of the 2007 season, so the Jets would certainly be digging deep in the barrel of retreads. New York is also expected to conduct second interviews with incumbent assistant GM Scott Cohen, ex-Bears GM Jerry Angelo, and Steelers cap guru Omar Khan.
