Jets find themselves a GM, former Seahawks VP John Idzik has a tough task ahead of him

Former Seattle Seahawks executive John Idzik has agreed to become the New York Jets' GM, the team announced Friday.

After a long search, Woody Johnson and his underlings have found their man... or should we say, their sucker.

The money must have been apparently right for Idzik, or he must really love a stiff challenge. He faces a mountain of tasks: salary cap issues, quarterback issues, overall roster issues, Rex Ryan issues... the list goes on and on.

“After a thorough search in which we met many qualified and outstanding candidates, it was clear to me that John was the right choice,” Johnson said in a statement released by the Jets. “During his two decades in the NFL, John helped build a Super Bowl championship team in Tampa Bay, an NFC championship team in Arizona and, most recently, a team in Seattle that narrowly missed reaching the NFC Championship Game.
 
“John has seen firsthand what’s necessary to construct a winning team and has worked with some of the most innovative and successful coaches in the NFL, including Pete Carroll, Tony Dungy, Dennis Green, Jon Gruden and Mike Holmgren. Drawing on 20 years of NFL experience, John, working with Rex (Ryan), will get the Jets where all of us want to be.”
