The New York Jets announced on Friday night that Joe Douglas will be their new general manager after three seasons with the Eagles as the team's vice president of player personnel.
“We want to thank Joe Douglas for his contributions to our organization. We will miss Joe personally and professionally," said executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman.
"He’s a tireless worker who played an integral role in helping to construct our Super Bowl-winning roster. He deserves this opportunity and the Jets are lucky to have him as their GM just like we were to have him in Philadelphia. In addition to his skills as a talent evaluator, we can’t say enough about Joe as a person. He is one of the best family men I have come across in the NFL. We wish him, his wife Shannon, and his children all the best.”
