Christopher Johnson Adam Gase and Mike Maccagnan

In a stunning move, the New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday.

NY made the borderline shocking announcement Tuesday that it fired general manager Mike Maccagnan as well as VP of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger.

Gase was hired this off-season following the dismissal of Todd Bowles as head coach.

The New York Jets announced the firing of general manager Mike Maccagnan today, as well as his right-hand man, VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger.

Jets CEO Christopher Johnson said in a statement he told Maccagnan he was being relieved of his duties in the morning.

If you're a NY sports fan who puts your support behind the Knicks and Jets, well, you've had better days. There were some rumors, however, that there was tension between Maccagnan and Gase - which both denied.

Yahoo Sports senior National Football League reporter Charles Robinson tweeted that "philosophical differences bubbled up" between Gase and Maccagnan "on how money would be spent to build". We have discussion on everything.

As Robinson notes, that kind of difference in team-building ideas should have been discussed by Gase and Maccagnan during the interview process. 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 Indianapolis to move up from the No. 6 spot.

But Maccagnan's draft history since coming to NY after 15 years in various scouting positions with the Houston Texans is otherwise shaky, at best.
