New York Jets: Rebuild Reality Check

Dan Essien with a comprehensive review of the New York Jets “rebuild” and how it compares to other teams in similar situations league wide in recent years…

New York Jets – Maccagnan’s Trades & How They Lead to One More

Over the course of Maccagnan’s 3.5 year tenure with the Jets, he has not been shy about making trades for players. That is just a bit odd because he has always said from the beginning how he wants to build the roster through the draft, but it shows that that he will do what he thinks is necessary to make the team better. Starting from 2015, let’s go through a quick recap of the trades he has made thus far.

New York Jets GM Mike Maccagnan: Draft History Deep Dive

Joe Caporoso takes a closer look at Mike Maccagnan’s time in Houston as the Director and Assistant Director of College Scouting

It is difficult to evaluate Mike Maccagnan’s body of work prior to being hired as the New York Jets General Manager. We know he spent a decade as a scout, got promoted to Assistant Director of College Scouting in 2010 and then moved up to Director in 2011 after Houston’s draft. We don’t know the inner workings of Houston’s organization or which decisions ultimately came down to him.
