Report: Jets exec could join scouting staff


General manager Reggie McKenzie could be reunited with former high school and college teammate Joey Clinkscales, according to an ESPNNewYork.com report.

Clinkscales, the New York Jets director of college scouting since 2008, will part with the organization, according to league sources, with Oakland the likely destination.

McKenzie, the first general manager other than Al Davis to run the Raiders draft room since 1963, said following the hiring of coach Dennis Allen he didn’t expect to make any changes in the scouting department until after the draft.

Clinkscales was the quarterback at Austin-East High School in Knoxville, Tenn., while McKenzie and his brother Raleigh were two-way players. Clinkscales also went to Tennessee along with the McKenzies.

During the offseason, Clinkscales interviewed for the general manager position for the St. Louis Rams.

    With Osi not being happy in NY (even though he just won 2 rings there), would you guys take him?

    Hell yeah
    Send Kelly and a draft pick.

  • Preppie,

    You use Technical Analysis, correct? TEACH ME a few things. You were right about BAC, and I don’t think you were lucky.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Falcons have agreed to terms with CB Asante Samuel on a three-year, $18.5 million contract.
    The trade is all but complete. Samuel’s old deal had $21.3 million over two years remaining in base salary alone, so he’s accepting a sizable pay cut from that contract. The Philly Inquirer confirms the Eagles will “likely” receive a sixth-round pick in exchange, while also unloading a heavy dose of cap space.

    593. Palmer didn’t throw to his TEs much in Hue Jackson’s offense. Most versions of the WCO utilize the TE as a passcatcher. McKenzie just signed the Hardy kid and is reportedly looking at two small school guys that appear to be pass catching types.

    With so many needs on defense I’m not sure that we have the luxury of taking one early, but I think we’ll see the TE used a log more in the passing game than we did last year. Keep in mind also that Ausberry was a wideout at SC; doesn’t really fit the blocking TE description.
