Report: Jets Targeting Cowboys' Draft Guru, Will McClay

McClay is the Cowboys' assistant director of player personnel

The New York Jets fired general manager John Idzik on Monday. Apparently, they’re looking at Dallas Cowboys’ assistant director of player personnel Will McClay as a potential replacement.

McClay has been integral in the Cowboys’ draft process in recent years and, in three of the past four drafts, they’ve landed a Pro Bowl offensive lineman. That offensive line led the way for DeMarco Murray on his way to setting a franchise record in rushing, and behind him the Cowboys made the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

Jerry Jones said after the win over the Redskins on Sunday that he hadn’t been contacted by the Jets yet.

“I own Will McClay. I own him. He can’t go anywhere,” Jones joked, per the Dallas Morning News. “No, seriously, that’s what success does, always does, it creates a lot of opportunities in a lot of different ways for a lot of people. [We’ve] obviously, have been for years, sold on him and appreciate the job he has done and he’s doing.”
