The Jets have added another piece to their front office, as reports from NFL.com state that Phil Savage is joining the team.
Savage’s role is not yet clear, but barring a snag, an announcement is expected this week, per Rapoport.
It’s a reunion for Savage and new Jets GM Joe Douglas. The duo worked together in Baltimore, from 2000 when Douglas joined the Ravens’ staff as a scout until 2005 when Savage left for the Browns GM job. This time around, it’s Douglas in charge.
After his stint as the Browns GM and three years with the Philadelphia Eagles, Savage worked as the Senior Bowl Executive Director from 2012-2018, where he helped select the prospects and run the event, a vital part of the pre-draft process.
Savage left the Senior Bowl last year for a chance to be the GM of the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football, which folded before the end of its first season.
