Media is going to grill Gase to death. And now since he is the "interim" GM he has to answer all the questions.

And they will be out for blood

This could get U.G.L.Y. very quickly. They'd better get the new GM in here quickly. If he's polished in dealing with the media he can diffuse a LOT of the crap that's being written about the Jets

Um, the media access rules primarily include the head coach, not the GM.  Gase was already going to have to stand up there.  How many times did you hear Maccagnan or Idzik speak?  Gettelman?

Media will take advantage that he is in both roles and open up all questions.

first they need an exterminator to flush out the leakers.  But GMs hide after the draft, it is true

As long as they ask substantive organizational, personnel or coaching-related questions, is that a problem?  He IS the GM and Head Coach right now. 

Don't we fans have a reasonable expectation of access and information from Gase the way we've had to every head coach and GM before him?

Why is him being asked questions a bad thing?

New York Jets: No. 2 Cornerback

24 OF 32

Top Contenders: Darryl Roberts, Parry Nickerson, Blessuan Austin

Opposing quarterbacks may take aim at the spot opposite Trumaine Johnson in the Jets' secondary.

The Jets have yet to re-sign Morris Claiborne, who logged 14 pass breakups and two interceptions in 15 starts last year. Since the 29-year-old has yet to sign elsewhere, he could be a late-offseason pickup to fill a wide-open spot on the depth chart. 

In the meantime, Roberts has gained steam with the current coaching staff, per The Athletic's Connor Hughes.

"The Jets speak highly of Roberts. They genuinely believe he can be their Week 1 starter. Whether that faith is misplaced will soon be seen, considering the team failed to add a corner in any of the first three rounds."

Roberts lined up on the perimeter and free safety last season, recording 41 solo tackles, seven pass breakups and an interception. He could find a steady role on the outside, assuming safety Marcus Maye stays healthy after he missed 10 games because of foot, thumb and shoulder injuries in 2018. 

Brian Poole, a proven slot defender, could push Nickerson to the outside. He's recorded 19 pass breakups, five sacks and four interceptions in three seasons. 

The Jets selected cornerback Blessuan Austin in the sixth round, but he played only five games between his junior and senior seasons at Rutgers because of knee injuries.

We'll find out how much the Jets like Roberts as the front-runner to start opposite Johnson. If he falls short on early expectations, Claiborne's name could emerge pending his availability.
