Jets Hire Seahawks' Idzik as General Manager

Coming off a season of disappointment and dysfunction, the New York Jets started the rebuilding process by hiring Seattle Seahawks executive John Idzik as their new general manager. Idzik, the fourth GM in Woody Johnson's 13 years as Jets' owner, inherits a 6-10 team, a possible lame-duck coach, a lean roster with a handful of immovable contracts, and a polarizing quarterback in Tim Tebow. "I am honored and extremely excited to be joining the New York Jets," said Idzik, who will be introduced at a news conference Thursday. "I am eager to get started building on the foundation that is already in place."
