The Jets have requested permission to speak with Joe Douglas and Champ Kelly for their GM vacancy, according to the NFL Network. Douglas, the presumptive frontrunner, is the Eagles' vice president of player personnel. Kelly is the Bears' assistant director of player personnel. Both men have a background with coach Adam Gase, the interim GM in the aftermath of the Mike Maccagnan firing.

QB Sam Darnold expressed mixed emotions on the firing of GM Mike Maccagnan. "Taking me three overall, it was a life-changing experience and I'll forever be grateful," Darnold said. "But I do understand it's a tough business. I understand that and a lot of guys on the team do." S Jamal Adams, picked sixth overall by Maccagnan in 2017, showed no emotion. Basically, he chalked it up to the business.

Jets' Gase: 'Ridiculous' to consider trading Bell

Jets coach Adam Gase hinted he wasn't a fan of what the Jets paid for Le'Veon Bell in free agency, but he said he is "excited" to have the running back on his roster and isn't thinking about trading him.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

A few thoughts on the Jets' first open practice: Strong day for QB Sam Darnold, who seemed comfortable in Adam Gase's offense. His best throw was a 42-yard TD to WR Robby Anderson ... No sign of RB Le'Veon Bell ... Rookie DT Quinnen Williams sat out with a calf injury. Precautionary, the team said ... WR Jamison Crowder was a tough cover, showing the ability to separate quickly ... Rookie LB Blake Cashman showed awareness in pass coverage, making an INT on a tipped ball ... Trumaine Johnson was a no-show, underscoring the lack of depth at corner. The top three: Darryl Roberts, Brian Poole and Derrick Jones. The position is screaming for veteran help.

The Jets have signed well-traveled WR Deonte Thompson, his agent tweeted. Thompson played under Adam Gase with the Bears in 2015. He has 94 career catches, 1,193 yards and four TDs, including three catches last year for the Bills.

The Jets will conduct their first OTA practice today — a voluntary workout (closed to media). Top storylines leading into the June 4 mandatory minicamp: 1. Will Le'Veon Bell show up? Probably not until minicamp; 2. QB Sam Darnold, who has impressed the new coaching staff with his work ethic, gets his first chance to perform in a practice before new boss Adam Gase; 3. Fiery DC Gregg Williams begins to mold his unit, which includes two key newcomers in LB C.J. Mosley and rookie DT Quinnen Williams. 4. S Marcus Maye (shoulder) and T Brandon Shell (knee) are the biggest injury questions that have been disclosed.

In less than a week as the interim GM, Adam Gase has jettisoned two draft picks from the previous regime. The latest to go is TE Jordan Leggett, who was waived Monday. Leggett, a fifth-round pick in 2017, was limited by injuries and caught only 14 passes in 15 games over two seasons. Leggett was considered a flex/receiving tight end; Chris Herndon and Neal Sterling remain in that role. The "blocking" tight ends are Eric Tomlinson, Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco. Last week, Gase traded former first-round pick Darron Lee.

Interim GM/coach Adam Gase has made his second personnel move as the man in charge, signing free-agent punter Matt Darr — his punter with the Dolphins in 2016. Gase cut Darr in 2017. Darr resurfaced late last season with the Bills, punting in five games. Darr will be competition for incumbent Lachlan Edwards.

WR Robby Anderson finally has signed his RFA tender — one year, $3.095M, as ESPN's Field Yates reported. As noted last week, Anderson and Rams LB Cory Littleton were the only RFAs with a second-round tender who hadn't signed. Restricted free agency ended April 19, so it was only a matter of time before Anderson got around to signing.
