According to the New York Post's Brian Costello, Marc Ross has pulled out of the race for the general manager position for the New York Jets. In the wake of this new development, we wanted to take a look at who is left in contention and what they bring to the table.
It should really come as a shock to no one that Woody Johnson is having trouble filling this spot. After all, who wants to come in and run the ship when it's been made clear Rex Ryan can't/won't be fired. Lame duck coaches aren't exactly an incentive for prospective general managers.
Still, there's something to be said for being the man who turned the Jets from an NFL laughingstock into a Super Bowl contender, and I'm sure someone will take the bait.
Here are the remaining eight candidates rumored to be in the running for this position, along with our take on the pros and cons each man brings to the Jets.
