Robert Saleh has signed a 5-year deal to become the Jets' HC, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Saleh has spent the last 4 seasons as San Francisco's defensive coordinator, leading the Niners to top 5 finishes in yards allowed in each of the past 2. Saleh is reportedly expected to bring former 49ers passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur with him to New York to serve as OC. Mike is Packers HC Matt LaFleur's brother and has worked under Kyle Shanahan since 2014. LaFleur's only experience as an offensive coordinator came at Saint Joseph's in 2011 and 2012 and Davidson in 2013.
The Jets have fired HC Adam Gase, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This has been a long time coming. Gase's Jets won just 9 games over the past 2 seasons, finishing dead last in total yards both years. Other than when he's had QB Peyton Manning, his offenses have disappointed. We'll see who the Jets tab to replace Gase, but it'll undoubtedly be an upgrade for the offense.
Jets LB Blake Cashman (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He has been out since Week 7 and entered the day questionable. Cashman could be ready to regain the starting spot that Harvey Langi has occupied recently. Cashman is tough to trust in IDP lineups right away, though. He has played just 3 total defensive snaps on the year.
The Jets have ruled LB Avery Williamson out for Sunday's opener at Buffalo. Williamson is dealing with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice Thursday and Friday. S Marcus Maye is questionable for the game. He's listed with calf and ankle injuries. Maye missed practice Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. We'd try not to use him in IDP lineups even if he's active Sunday.
