If Gamble changes his mind at the last minute (or if the Jets do), these are merely contingency plans by both parties.
also keep in mind that until they comply with the Rooney Rule, the Jets can't formally announce the signing of Gamble or any other GM candidate.
but let's just go over the timelines real quick: the Jets have already interviewed 3 guys for the position, Gamble, Dorsey and Caldwell. arguably, the top 3 "names" in the market. today, the Jets are interviewing Ross, a minority, and Cohen, the in-house guy.
more than likely neither Ross nor Cohen are under serious consideration for the job but they're part of the due process. their top target is one of the other 3, reportedly Gamble, but why not take the time to hear other voices and get different ideas on how to "fix" the Jets, since they need to go through with these interviews anyway?
we might not have a new GM in place by the time of tomorrow's press conference, but the timeline of events suggests that a decision will have already been made.
