GM Joe Douglas made key additions to the Jets' front office on Tuesday.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Jets added Browns GM Phil Savage and Ravens Director of Pro Personnel Chad Alexander. Later in the afternoon, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Colts VP of Player Personnel Rex Hogan has been hired by Gang Green to be Douglas' assistant GM.
The 54-year-old Savage's role is unclear, but he returns to an NFL front office for the first time since he was with the Eagles from 2010-12. Meanwhile, Alexander will serve as director of player personnel for the Jets.
Hogan had previously worked with the Jets as the team's director of college scouting before heading to the Colts in 2017. He was hired by Mike Maccagnan in 2015 and spent two seasons in New York.
Douglas has worked with both Savage and Alexander in the Baltimore Ravens front office from 200-04. Douglas was a scout then while Save was the director of college scouting and director of player personnel.
Savage was most recently GM of the Arizona Hotshots of the now-defunct AAF and spent six years prior to that working as the executive director of the Senior Bowl. He was hired as the Browns GM in 2005 and served that position until he was fired in 2008 after going 24-40 during his tenure with just one winning season.
