The New York Jets thorough search for a new GM continues, and Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Jets will interview Green Bay Packers executive John Dorsey this weekend. The NFL insider adds that Dorsey has a “strong shot” at becoming a GM after Andy Reid went to the Kansas City Chiefs, as it is rumored that the two will team up in Kansas City.
The Jets are focusing on some of the top names on the market right now in San Francisco’s Tom Gamble, Marc Ross of the New York Giants, Atlanta’s David Caldwell, Cleveland’s veteran GM Tom Heckert, and they could even promote one of their own in exec Scott Cohen.
There are plenty of possibilities for the Jets, but the question is whether or not they can nab their preferred candidate by selling this team to them. With Gamble being such a hot name on the open market (the Browns, Chargers, and Jaguars have shown interest), it might be more difficult to grab the New York native.
Dorsey was promoted by the Packers this spring to the role of “director of football operations”, but it seems unlikely that he picks the Jets due to the connection with Andy Reid. If things do indeed fall in place for Reid and the Chiefs, then Scott Pioli will be on his way out and Dorsey on his way into K.C.
