Since last week's shocking announcement that general manager Mike Maccagnan was relieved of his duties, head coach Adam Gase has been handling personnel duties as the Jets' interim general manager. While it was initially assumed Gase would merely be a placeholder for the new guy because the position would be filled hastily, he's already made a series of moves in that role.
Nobody is quite sure what to expect next. Should we be reading anything into these moves and what they might mean for the roster he'll be working with, the same roster Maccagnan's replacement is set to inherit?
Gase wasted no time in making his first move, as the Jets finalized a trade sending former first-rounder Darron Lee to the Kansas City Chiefs for a late-round pick. Since then, he's also brought in punter Matt Darr and wide receiver Deonte Thompson - both of whom have played for him in the past - and released two players. It was also reported that a scout who worked under Maccagnan - Bill Dekraker - was relieved of his duties.
