Very smart move by the Jets . . . Dan Leberfeld

It’s hard to argue with this decision which should benefit the Jets a great deal.

Talking about the Jets adding Phil Savage as a senior adviser.

Savage has a tremendous amount of experience in the player personnel world.

He was the GM of the Browns from 2005-08 and director of college scouting for the Baltimore Ravens before that. He also worked for the Philadelphia Eagles as a personnel consultant.

From 2012-18 he ran the Senior Bowl in his hometown of Mobile, AL. He picked the players for that game which improved a great deal under his watch.

He was also the radio color commentator for Alabama Crimson Tide football from 2009-18, so he was around the SEC the last decade; the best conference for college football talent in the country.

What a terrific right-hand man for Douglas, a first-time GM; a man with a ton of player personnel experience who’s been an NFL GM before. What a great sounding board for Douglas!

He’s the perfect “bench coach” for Douglas to borrow a baseball term.
