The New York Jets requested general manager interviews with Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas and Chicago Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Both executives have ties to Jets head coach and interim general manager Adam Gase. The Jets reportedly sent out other interview requests as well.
Douglas is viewed as the favorite to land the job. He's worked in the Eagles' front office since 2016 and helped build Philadelphia's 2018 championship team.
Kelly has been in an executive role with the Bears for one year but previously served as their director of pro scouting. He and Douglas both come from scouting backgrounds.
The Jets are looking for a top personnel man to replace Mike Maccagnan, who was fired May 15.
