The Jets official website reports that the team will chat with Packers director of football operations John Dorsey about the open Jets GM job.
Add Packers director of football operations John Dorsey to the list of viable candidates to become the Jets next general manager, according to a report from CBS Sports.
Dorsey has spent 22 years in player personnel over four separate stints with the Packers between 1991 and 2012. Dorsey also played for Green Bay between 1984 and 1989. He certainly fits the ideal candidate profile that’s been developing: A strong focus on personnel and a background on a team that has developed through the draft.
The CBS Sports report indicates that Dorsey will interview this weekend, joining former Browns GM Tom Heckert and 49ers director of player personnel among the opening batch of candidates to go in front of owner Woody Johnson and Jed Hughes, the leader of the executive search firm Johnson hired.
