It had been established that New York Jets’ first-year general manager John Idzik could take some time to put his stamp on the front office.
 
Typically teams wait until after the draft to make any front office moves since it leaves them with very little time replace the departing members of the front office. Moreover, such moves carry the risk of putting a year’s worth of effort down the drain, considering the (among many other things) the scouting department also looks high and low to find college talent that could address the team’s needs for the coming season and future.
 
But with a closure to the 2013 NFL Draft over the weekend, John Idzik is prepared to shake-up the front office. The news may have a sweet ring to it for the New York Jets fans, who were baffled and disappointed with quite a few of the draft picks made by the team over the weekend.
 
John Idzik started off remaking the New York Jets’ scouting department by ensuring assistant director of college scouting Michael Davis and area scout Joe Bommarito will not return with the team next season.  The New York Jets have not renewed the contracts of both Michael Davis and Joe Bommarito, according to multiple sources. But since both of their contracts officially expire next month, Michael Davis and Joe Bommarito technically still remain bound to the New York Jets.
 
Michael Davis has been a member of the New York Jets front office for 16 years now, including spending the last five at his current position. Michael Davis is also area scouting duties for the Southeast, including SEC and ACC schools.
 
Joe Bommarito has spent the last 12-years of his career with the New York Jets. He is responsible for scouting the West Coast.
 
John Idzik isn’t expected to stop with front the office changes (following these two moves), as he slowly tries to mold the New York Jets into his team, in hopes of turning them into a contender for the years to come.
