The New York Jets are back doing New York Jets things. On Wednesday morning they announced the firing of General Manager Mike Maccagnan and Vice President of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger.
The timing seemed bizarre and we immediately said there had to be more to the story. It turns out there is.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, head coach Adam Gase did not want the Jets to sign Le’Veon Bell, in fact he didn’t want to spend the amount of money they did on a running back.
One disagreement between Adam Gase and Mike Maccagnan/Christopher Johnson…
Gase absolutely did not want to sign Le’Veon Bell, per sources. In fact, he made it clear that he didn’t want to spend a lot of money on any running back.

Bell signed a four-year $52.5 million deal with the Jets that includes $27 million in guaranteed money. We should have known it was Le’Veon Bell’s fault.
