Could this surprising move throw a wrench in the Jets' general manager search?
The #Texans have fired GM Brian Gaine. Stunner.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 7, 2019
All of a sudden there's a second team who needs a general manager. Could Houston swoop in and steal the Jets preferred candidate? They've apparently had interest in the man many believe is the Jets' top choice for the job:
In 2018, when the Texans were searching for a GM, they were denied the chance to interview Joe Douglas. Douglas, of course, is now a preferred target of the Jets. More here: https://t.co/NmR7s4QOmk— Field Yates (@FieldYates) June 7, 2019
Perhaps it's a moot point. Jason McIntyre from Fox Sports, a Jets fan best known for being the co-founder of the Big Lead, reckons Douglas to the Jets is a done deal. Then again, he said Douglas had turned the Jets down yesterday, so take that with a grain of salt.
Another theoretical possibility is that the Jets might view Gaine as a candidate and could bring him in for an interview, but that seems unlikely at this late stage.
We'll keep you posted with any further developments.
