On NFL Sunday on FOX, he said this:
"They can't give the position away. They're calling back candidates who already turned them down. Their cap situation, personnel, QB and the circus turned a lot of candidates off."

Over the past few years, the Jets have been an absolute disaster.

They've gone 14-18 over the past two season, after 2 straight AFC Championship game appearances.

Their QB situation is among the worst in football, particularly because they're paying Mark Sanchez $8 million next year, despite knowing that he's absolutely incapable of playing the QB position.

Their coach, Rex Ryan, is considered a defensive genius, but their offense has been absolutely abysmal of late.

Their owner brought in Tim Tebow last year, showing that it's more important to make waves than actually focus on success between the lines.

Thanks to the money they owe Sanchez, as well as other bad deals, they're in a horrid situation with the salary cap, and still have multiple weaknesses on both sides of the ball.

This Jets franchise is in terrible shape right now, and let's be honest. It's no surprise that no one wants the GM job. Accepting the job would be inviting failure, and most likely would end up being a black mark on the resume of anyone who takes on the challenge.

Fair or not... there's no reason anyone should want to take it.
