The New York Jets may be zeroing in on their new general manager.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the expectation is that Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas will ultimately land the Jets’ job, and the two sides have entered into negotiations.

Douglas has been considered the leading candidate during much of the search process, so this outcome would not be a huge surprise.

It’s certainly not the perfect job for several reasons , but there are only 32 GM jobs available, and they don’t come open that often. The Jets will be relying on Douglas to turn the franchise around and form a good working relationship with head coach Adam Gase.
