Report: Jets HC Adam Gase, Now Also Interim GM, Didn’t Want To Sign Le’Veon Bell

The New York Jets earlier today fired the general manager who was in place when they signed Le’Veon Bell in March. According to reports, their new general manager—who is also their head coach—was against signing him. I can’t imagine anything going wrong from this point forward.

It’s not out of the ordinary that an organization allows its scouting staff to get through a draft cycle before letting them go. It’s a bit more unusual for a team to fire a general manager after going through free agency and the draft. But the Jets just did that in letting Mike Maccagnan go.
