The NFL's season of musical chairs has begun, and we aren't close to the end of the melody.

The latest news concerns former Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert.

Schein: The Jets' biggest mistake
The 2012 New York Jets season was full of bad moves. Adam Schein says the team saved the worst for last. More ...

Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer reported Tuesday that Heckert has an interview scheduled with the New York Jets, who jettisoned GM Mike Tannenbaum on Monday.

Cabot also reported that at least one NFL team other than the Jets is hotly pursuing Heckert. However, she cited a source who disputes multiple reports that Heckert, who also was the Philadelphia Eagles' GM, would end up with Andy Reid in Arizona if the Cardinals hire the former Eagles coach.

The interest in Heckert isn't a shock. He has shown a keen eye as a talent evaluator in each of his NFL stops. Cleveland is one of the best job openings on the market partially because of the work Heckert did in upgrading the talent on both sides of the ball.
