Scott Mason talks to Chris Nimbley of Jetsinsider.com to discuss the Jets requesting permission to speak with Philadelphia Eagles VP of Player Personnel Joe Douglas and Chicago Bears Assistant Director of Player Personnel Champ Kelly for Gang Green’s vacant GM opening and answer YOUR questions (part 1).

First, we discuss the Jets making formal requests to interview Douglas and Kelly, what it means, if there is a timeline in place to fill the vacancy, and what Chris is hearing from his sources about who may have the inside track!

Then,  we take YOUR questions about Adam Gase the Alpha Male, Chris’s memories of covering Josh McCown, if we should expect any immediate friction between Gase and Le’Veon Bell, which GM candidates will be confident enough to set pre-conditions and not be worried about Woody Johnson, whether or not Chris got a real sense of how Gregg Williams will be using Jachai Polite based on what was going on at OTAs, how the “Almost Jets” doomed Mike Maccagnan and if his roster building philosophy made any real strategic sense, plus we even throw in a little nod to AEW as we await their big show “Double or Nothing!”

Note: We had such an overwhelming response to the mailbag and received so many questions that the answers were broken down into multiple parts.  This was part 1.
