    In addition to all this coaching carousel talk, Seattle stands to lose a central figure in their front office, VP of Football Operations, John Idzik, as he interviews with the Jets for their vacant GM position for a 2nd time today. Idzik, from what I understand, has been an integral piece of Seattle's rebuild and the man behind the salary cap management over the past few years. The Seahawks have been tight with their money, but this frugality has led Seattle to become one of the best-managed franchises in the NFL over the past two or three years, a stark contrast to teams like the Raiders and Ravens, for instance, who face the possibility of dropping key players because of cap overages.

    According to the Seahawks' website, Idzik "oversees player negotiations, the team's compliance with the NFL salary cap, player personnel transactions, all football operations budgets, staff and team contracts, team travel and most aspects of the day-to-day football operations while also remaining active in player evaluations."

    Albert Breer also pointed out yesterday that the final sentence up there is true, Idzik has a role in scouting players, and the Seahawks have sent him on the road with this function of late. This dual ability - a business management acumen plus an ability to evaluate talent - is what makes him so valuable to the Seahawks and attractive to the Jets. I don't know if it's warranted, but I'm almost more worried about losing Idzik than I am about losing Bevell or Bradley.
    Nice find - thanks!

    Nice find, maybe the process is working after all. All in with Idzik!

    I'm pretty hyped up on Idzik, I'd love to see him get the job. I think he is my #1 right now.

    You don't resign until after you are announced as GM of the Jets you moron. Are you serious or joking? I can't tell.

    Idzik.

    We need a personnel guy, specifically one who can draft on the offensive side of the ball with success.

    Khan comes from a great organization, but he has no player personnel or scouting experience.

    Most often the team that he is leaving sends a email to management that the person has accepted a position with another team. This behind the scenes happens before it goes public.

    Do you really think he is going to tell Paul Allen after it goes public? The information is shared between the 2 teams, and their front office staff before it goes public. Thats standard procedure.
