A team official announced Sunday that both coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan would be back for the 2017 season.
Retaining the GM-coach combo isn't a surprise. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning that owner Woody Johnson is inclined to keep Bowles for at lease one more season.
Bowles is getting the benefit of the doubt after a 10-win season in 2015. A bevy of injuries ravaged a shallow roster in 2016 and the quarterback situation sunk the Jets during a rough opening slate of games.
