New York Jets
Before the New York Jets missed on several high priority free agents this offseason, before the season went down in flames, before Sam Darnold got mono, but (for some reason) after the 2019 NFL Draft, you may or may not remember one of the weirdest offseason moves of the past season.
After allowing Mike Maccagnan to lead the free agency search and the 2019 NFL Draft, the Jets fired him and replaced him with Joe Douglas a month after.
Not only was this a colossal embarrassment for the Jets, but it made the power dynamic in New York strange. It seemed like Adam Gase had pushed Maccagnan out over the amount of money that was given to Le’Veon Bell, and the process led to Joe Douglas signing a 6-year deal.
That deal outlasts Gase’s deal which is up in just three years. So, who really has the power in that organization?
I would say that Gase will be the first domino to fall in any sort of firing even that takes place after their next bad season, which means that Douglas is almost given a free pass to do whatever he wants in the 2020 NFL Draft. The only way this shifts is if Douglas drafts someone who is an absolute bust.
So, if Douglas wants to trade down and add more picks to give himself a better chance to hit then he might be willing to make a big move.
