Jets GM search hindered by 'circus,' per report

Matt Sullivan

New York is having a tough time bringing in qualified people to fill its front office vacancy.

The New York Jets are having some serious issues bringing in a general manager to replace the ousted Mike Tannenbaum.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Jets' atmosphere is holding them back. Glazer continues to say that he expects New York to make the move rather quickly, but it certainly hasn't been an easy process.

This has been just another embarrassing episode for the Jets. The team interviewed David Caldwell and were supposedly smitten with him, only to watch him take the same job with the Jacksonville Jaguars, perhaps the worst team in the league.

All of it speaks to the epic dysfunction within the organization, whether real or perceived. The Jets are also held back by owner Woody Johnson's proclamation that no potential GM can come in and replace head coach Rex Ryan.

One name that has been rumored for the job is ex-Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo, who led them to a Super Bowl appearance in 2006.
