New York Jets Unexpectedly Fire GM Mike Maccagnan: Twitter Reacts

The New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday, naming head coach Adam Gase the interim GM in his place. Johnson goes on to justify today's choice "what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets".

With their GM search underway following Wednesday's firing of Mike Maccagnan, the New York Jets could raid Bears GM Ryan Pace's personnel staff to find Maccagnan's successor.

Vice president of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger was also relieved of his duties, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington.

It said she had been "in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia". Day was appreciative of her fans throughout her long career , but she did not particularly enjoy talking about herself.

Oh, about that. Gase now is the 20th general manager in the AFC East over the last two decades, joining a carousel of castoffs that rivals the Cleveland Browns' famous quarterback list. For what it's worth, Gase later downplayed the reports. Head Coach Todd Bowles paid the price with his job in the off-season, but Maccagnan was seemingly handed a reprieve and was given the green light to mount a particularly aggressive offseason. Oakland did something similar when it hired draft expert Mike Mayock away from NFL Media to be the team's general manager.

Lee was a 2016 first-round pick by the Jets, taken 20th overall, and played three underwhelming seasons in Gotham. However, Gase and Maccagnan reportedly disagreed on quite a few things, one of those being the acquiring of Jets running back, Le'Veon Bell.

Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas, who is believed to be close to Gase, could be the man to replace Maccagnan fulltime, ESPN reported.
