Did signing Le'Veon Bell get Mike Maccagnan fired?

The New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday

"I will start a search for our new General Manager immediately".

Vice president of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger was also let go on Wednesday according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Jets fired Maccagnan on Wednesday and elevated Gase to interim GM.

The move is a stunner given its timing, as Maccagnan led NY into the National Football League draft less than three weeks ago. For what it's worth, Gase later downplayed the reports.

The timing is odd considering Maccagnan oversaw the Jets' draft less than three weeks ago, although there were rumors that he and Gase had some tension - which both denied. "It kind of pisses me off a little bit".

Maccagnan's first move was hiring Todd Bowles as head coach, though Bowles was sacked earlier this year.

A rift reportedly grew between Maccagnan and Gase weeks after the head coach was hired in January.

The New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Tuesday and named head coach Adam Gase the interim GM. The Jets also added wide receiver Jamison Crowder from the Washington Redskins and trade for offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele from the Oakland Raiders.

The Jets also have what they believe is a franchise quarterback in place in Sam Darnold, who was the third overall pick in last year's draft after Maccagnan engineered a deal with the Colts to move up from the No. 6 spot.

Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas could emerge as a candidate, Schefter suggested.

The Patriots and Jets will play in Week 3 at New England and Week 7 in NY this season.
