Jets go with Joe Douglas over Seahawks executive Scott Fitterer as new General Manager

The New York Jets have a new general manager, but it’s not Seattle Seahawks executive Scott Fitterer.

Despite reportedly being impressed with Seattle’s current Co-Director of Player Personnel during the interview process, the Jets have gone with former Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel Joe Douglas as the replacement for the unceremoniously fired Mike Maccagnan. Truth be told, Douglas was the favorite to land the job and his previous ties with Jets head coach Adam Gase certainly helped his case.

Fitterer is no stranger to being interviewed by other teams to be their possible GM.
