E_MK2_1172-helmet-abstract

If you're a NY sports fan who puts your support behind the Knicks and Jets, well, you've had better days.

Mehta reported that "Gase absolutely did not want to sign Le'Veon Bell, per sources".

The New York Jets announced the firing of general manager Mike Maccagnan today, as well as his right-hand man, VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger. Maccagnan was also active in free agency in March, spending more than $125 million to land the likes of running back Le'Veon Bell, linebacker C.J. Mosley and wide receiver Jamison Crowder.

Jets chariman and CEO, Christopher Johnson, released the following statement on Wednesday regarding the decision to fire the GM just three weeks after the NFL Draft.

Brexit Party overtakes Tories in new general election poll
It suggests that more than a third of voters will back the Brexit Party on May 23, with a predicted 34 per cent of the vote. Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said there has been a breakdown of trust between people and politicians.

NY made the borderline shocking announcement Tuesday that it fired general manager Mike Maccagnan as well as VP of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger.

When Maccagnan hired Gase in January, most people in the National Football League knew Gase was not going to sit idly by - like former Jets head coach Todd Bowles often did - and watch Maccagnan and Heimerdinger try to fix what they had inadequately built over the last four years.

As Robinson notes, that kind of difference in team-building ideas should have been discussed by Gase and Maccagnan during the interview process. That's our job. We have to work through so much stuff. Maccagnan was hired in 2015, days before the franchise hired Gase's predecessor, Todd Bowles.

Maccagnan compiled a 24-40 record during his tenure as Jets GM, with the team slumping to 4-12 last season. Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas could emerge as a candidate, Schefter suggested. He also acquired left guard Kelechi Osemele from Oakland in a trade.
