FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - John Idzik has been introduced as the New York Jets' new general manager, replacing the fired Mike Tannenbaum.
The 52-year-old Idzik, formerly the Seahawks' vice president of football administration, says Thursday that the Jets will ``explore every measure to bring in talent and to compete.'' He adds that the NFL draft will be the team's ``lifeline.''
Idzik, wearing a green and black checkered tie, was hired last Friday after a two-week search by the Jets that included 10 candidates. Idzik had been with the Seahawks the past six seasons after previously working in the front offices of Tampa Bay and Arizona.
Idzik's primary strengths include managing salaries and the salary cap, but he has also worked in player personnel - a combination that attracted the Jets.
