After sending their General Manager packing earlier in the week, the Jets are currently looking for a replacement. 

According to Pro Football Talk, the team is rumored to being targeting a former player to fill that role.  That former player is Peyton Manning.

Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson wants a “great strategic thinker” to run the football operation. He needs someone who can work with coach Adam Gase. And at the intersection possibly resides one and only one name.

Peyton Manning.

Rumors are flying within league circles that the Jets may make a run at the future Hall of Fame quarterback who has periodically been linked to NFL management possibilities. And Gase, who worked with Manning in Denver, possibly would be one of the few guys who could draw Manning back into football.

What a mess. 

There’s no way that Manning would ever join the Jets, is there? 

Up to this point he hasn’t shown any interest in returning to football and you wouldn’t think his first position back in the game would come with the Jets.
