The New York Jets' rambling search to hire someone for their vacant offensive coordinator position leads them to a familiar face on Monday.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that former Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will interview for the coordinator position. Cameron's offenses in Baltimore weren't terrible, but they also lacked imagination and didn't seem to fully capitalize on the talents in the building.
Jets coach Rex Ryan and Cameron crossed paths for one season as coordinators of the 2008 Ravens team before Ryan got the top job with the Jets. Cameron could wind up replacing Tony Sparano, the same man that once replaced Cameron as the head coach in Miami.
Meanwhile, New York's meandering search for a GM continues. Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported on Sunday that the Jets were calling back candidates that already turned them down, asking them to reconsider. SI.com's Peter King reported that the Jets were planning to give David Caldwell an offer than included a $1 million housing allowance, but Caldwell chose to take the GM job in Jacksonville.
We'll withhold judgement on the Jets' searches until they make their hires, but the early signs aren't promising for Jets fans. It doesn't appear like the team had a clear plan of action heading into the offseason.
