Late Friday night, the New York Jets finally landed their man.
After firing general manager Mike Maccagnan earlier this offseason, the Jets began their search for a new GM. Their search included interviewing several candidates, but the name that kept popping up was Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas.
The Jets would not be denied in their hunt of Douglas, reportedly offering him over $3 million.
As Douglas takes over the front office in New York, he’ll need to fill his staff.
According to a recent report from NFL insider Rich Cimini, and ESPN analyst is a candidate to join Douglas’ staff.
College football analayst and NFL draft expert Todd McShay revealed he’s an option.

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.
According to the report from Cimini, McShay is expected to interview for a spot on the Jets staff next week.
McShay could become the latest TV analyst to get a role on an NFL team. Jon Gruden landed with the Oakland Raiders, and brought in former NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock as the general manager.
