Aaron Glenn returns to Jets as a scout
By Rich Cimini
Aaron Glenn, one of the best defensive backs in Jets history, is returning to the team as a personnel scout. Most recently, Glenn worked as the general manager of the Houston Stallions, an Arena League team.
Glenn, a successful businessman in the Houston area, was the Jets' No. 1 draft pick in 1994. He played eight seasons with the Jets before going to the Texans in the 2002 expansion draft. He didn't retire until he was 36, culminating a 15-year career with five teams.
Glenn always was known as a studious player, and he obviously has a passion for the personnel side of the business. This was a good hire by the Jets, who should bring more of their former players into the organization.
UPDATE: Glenn's title is pro-personnel assistant.
