@ConorTOrr: Idzik would be able to do business with former Tampa Bay co-worker Mark Dominik. The two are still close. #nyj #jets

Dominik joined the Buccaneers’ staff in June 1995 as a pro personnel assistant. He served in that capacity through the 1997 season, before assuming the title of pro scout in 1998 and coordinator of pro personnel in 2000. Prior to the start of the 2001 season, Dominik began the first of his eight years as Tampa Bay’s Director of Pro Personnel. In 2002, Dominik helped guide the Buccaneers to their first world championship in their Super Bowl XXXVII victory over the Oakland Raiders.
As Director of Pro Personnel, Dominik's duties included overseeing the scouting, recruiting and signing efforts of all NFL players, while also monitoring NFL transactions and overseeing player tryouts. He was also in charge of the Pro Personnel department’s evaluation of players in all other professional football leagues, including the Canadian Football League and the Arena Football League, while being responsible for the negotiation and signing of contracts for several free agents and NFL Draft signings.
Idzik entered the NFL in 1993 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spent 11 years with the Buccaneers, first as a Pro Personnel Assistant and then was elevated to Director of Football Administration in 1996 and Assistant General Manager in 2001.
True. People would rather see the Jets sign Steven Jackson or Michael Turner, and then complain in week 3 of the season that are slow and over paid.
Totally agree, let Idzik do his job and judge him on his body of work after the draft.
He already expressed we will build through the draft, this FA will be used to build depth and competition. Nothing will change with top tier greedy free agents, we already are refusing to pay one of our own.
