Seahawks Exec John Idzik Front-Runner For Jets GM Job
Seahawks executive John Idzik has emerged as the clear front-runner to become the New York Jets' general manager and could be offered the job as early as Thursday night, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Pittsburgh Steelers executive Omar Khan is the other finalist for the job, according to league sources.
The Jets have changed their objective during their two-week search to find a replacement for GM Mike Tannenbaum, who was fired Dec. 31. The initial goal was to hire a GM with a strong scouting background, but Idzik and Khan are experts in salary-cap management and contract negotiations. If the Jets go in that direction, it could mean a greater say in personnel for coach Rex Ryan.
