The Jets appear to be close to finding a new defensive coordinator.
Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, new head coach Adam Gase is progressing in talks with former Browns interim head coach Gregg Williams to join his staff.
It is believed a deal will be reached.
Williams, 60, was among the preferred candidates on the Jets' list of possible coordinators, along with former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph.
Joseph was reportedly close to joining the Arizona Cardinals staff as defensive coordinator on Friday, leaving Williams as the likely choice for the Jets.
Williams was defensive coordinator of the Browns the last two seasons and went 5-3 as interim head coach last season after Cleveland fired head coach Hue Jackson.
Williams has been a defensive coordinator in the league since 1997, with a brief head coaching stint with the Bills from 2001-03.
He was at the center of the Bountygate controversy during his tenure with the New Orleans Saints and was out of the league for a three-year period before he was finally hired again in 2014 by Jeff Fischer and the St. Louis Rams.
