The Jets' search for a new general manager may already be under way.According to a CBS Sports report, the organization has begun to reach out to potential candidates across the NFL for its GM position, citing league sources.
However, Mike Tannenbaum may still be part of the future. The report says owner Woody Johnson is looking for someone to run the personnel decisions, while keeping Tannenbaum on to manage the salary cap and negotiate contracts. Houston's director of college scouting, Mike Maccagnan, was the only person named.
That partnership may not be palatable for some potential candidates.
"That's totally ridiculous," one league executive said in the report. "Only the Jets."
The report also said that it may come to be that Johnson ultimately will have to fully part ways with Tannenbaum to land the most attractive candidate.
