General manager Mike Maccagnan and the Jets have named Brian Heimerdinger the team's director of player personnel.

This season Heimerdinger was in his third season as a scout for the St. Louis Rams. As a player personnel analyst, he evaluated both pro and college players. His pro responsibilities included evaluating all players on nine NFL rosters, and on the college side he was the Rams' Southwest area scout.

Heimerdinger enters his sixth season in the NFL. Before the Rams, he served as a scouting intern with Houston when Maccagnan was in the Texans' scouting department, and he also worked with the Tennessee Titans.

Heimerdinger played wide receiver at Colorado State before finishing his collegiate career at Northern Colorado.

The neverending network of family connections and nepotism in the NFL is really unfortunate. A lot of "who ya knows" in positions that should be held by "what ya knows."

This is not a specific knock on young Dinger. Just an indictment on the entire league.

No different then most businesses.

Finally spending on the scouting side. I am hoping that all this effort on the scouting will yield great drafts because honestly, our drafts have been poor since 2005 I would say. We were lucky on a few players but the amount of free agent fixes we needed to raise the quality of our roster inhibits us from resigning our own players. You can't have long term success without consistently generating homegrown talent. Look at the Packers, Steelers and Ravens...those teams do a good job generating home grown talent.
