Jets scheduled to interview Tom Gamble

By James Walker

While head coach Rex Ryan is vacationing in the Bahamas, the New York Jets reportedly will meet with San Francisco 49ers personnel director Tom Gamble for their open general manager position. The interview will take place this weekend, Matt Miaocco of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Gamble was one of the first people the Jets requested to interview after firing former general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Gamble was a big part of San Francisco's turnaround the past two seasons with head coach Jim Harbaugh.

The Jets need a fresh pair of eyes to take an honest look at the team's old and overpaid roster. The Jets currently are over the salary cap. Someone must come in and make some major personnel changes after back-to-back non-winning seasons.
