ESPN's Todd McShay Reportedly Makes Decision On NFL Front Office Job

Todd McShay breaks down his first mock draft of 2019.


Earlier this week, a report suggested ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay was a candidate for the New York Jets front office.

According to a recent report from NFL insider Rich Cimini, McShay was a candidate to join Joe Douglas' staff.

After less than a week of speculation, McShay has reportedly made a decision on the job.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen revealed McShay will be staying with the Worldwide Leader.

"The talented ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay has decided to remain with the network, removing himself from any consideration for a personnel role with the Jets, per sources. McShay has no comment at this time," Mortensen reported.

McShay and Douglas have a history together. The two both played football for Richmond where McShay was the scout team quarterback and Douglas was an offensive lineman.

Douglas previously served as the Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel before taking over the Jets' front office.

After firing general manager Mike Maccagnan earlier this offseason, the Jets would not be denied in their hunt of Douglas, reportedly offering him over $3 million.

McShay will remain on ESPN's NFL coverage and team with Mel Kiper for the draft.

We'll have to wait and see if he ever makes the jump to the NFL.
