  • The New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday

If you're a NY sports fan who puts your support behind the Knicks and Jets, well, you've had better days. "And that's all we've done since we've been here", Gase said over the weekend when asked about a potential rift between him and Maccagnan.

Gase was irritated by the suggestion there were problems between he and Maccagnan when asked about the reports, saying last Friday: "I don't know who decides to put that stuff out there".

News of Maccagnan's firing comes amid rumors that he and Gase got into an argument centered around the draft, and how much they should have offered running back Le'Veon Bell. "It kind of pisses me off a little bit".

New head coach Adam Gase will serve as acting general manager until a new GM is hired.

Maccagnan's first move was hiring Todd Bowles as head coach, though Bowles was sacked earlier this year. The Jets also added wide receiver Jamison Crowder from the Washington Redskins and trade for offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele from the Oakland Raiders.

Maccagnan, who was responsible for Bowles' hiring, was brought to NY from the Texans after spending 15 seasons in Houston.

Joe Douglas to the New York Jets is believed, by some, to be a done deal, per Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Lee was drafted by the Jets in 2016 and has been one of the top tacklers on the team each season, including having the second-most tackles on the team in 2017.

The draft-day misses landed Maccagnan squarely on the hot seat, and now the Jets will move forward with someone else making the personnel decisions.

In the meantime, Gase will oversee all roster moves as the Jets enter the next phase of the offseason with organized team activities set to begin next week.
