The rumors are starting to heat up that the Jets could hire Chicago Bears Assistant Director of Player Personnel Anthony “Champ” Kelly. According to several sources, the Jets would reportedly be interested in making Kelly their assistant GM. Champ Kelly has a prior history working with both Joe Douglas and Adam Gase. This would be the first addition that Joe Douglas made to his staff since his hiring. Kelly is very well respected around the league and sources say he was the Jets backup option for GM if the Joe Douglas deal fell through. This would be a quality hire and with Kelly already having a history with the Jets staff, he should be capable of stepping right in and making an impact day one.
