Jets to interview former Browns GM Tom Heckert
The list just keeps on growing....
The Jets have scheduled an interview with former Browns general manager Tom Heckert, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.
Heckert, along with Browns coach Pay Shurmur were fired Monday by team owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner. There were reports Heckert could be headed toward a reunion in Arizona with Andy Reid -- who now is the leading candidate for the Cardinals job after being fired by the Eagles. (The pair go back along way. Heckert was the Vice President of player personnel in Philly, before being named general manager in 2006.)
However, the Cardinals and the Jets aren't the only team interested in Heckert. According to Cabot, another team is "heavily pursuing him" too.
