Next Up for GM Candidates: A Closer Look at Champ Kelly

Stephen Russo with a closer look at New York Jets GM candidate Champ Kelly

The Jets General Manager position has been vacant for almost three weeks now since the surprising move to fire Mike Maccagnan. They have set their lineup for interviews and have completed two thus far with Scott Fitterer (Seattle) and Terry Fontenot (New Orleans). They are wining and dining the odds-on favorite, Joe Douglas (Philadelphia) this weekend before wrapping up with Champ Kelly (Chicago) on Monday.

While many expect that Douglas is the favorite, and the name that has been most connected to Jets when the Maccagnan rumors began to fly, need I remind everyone that things rarely go as expected on One Jets Drive. If you don’t believe me, we can take a short walk down memory lane and I can introduce you to Head Coach Matt Rhule and starting Outside Linebacker Anthony Barr. So, before we all accept Joe Douglas as the new GM of the New York Jets, let’s take a closer at whose up next in the interview process: Asst. Director of Player Personnel with the Chicago Bears, Champ Kelly.
