Only 12 of the 22 players selected in his first three years are still on New York's roster.

The stunning decision by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson was announced in a statement posted Wednesday on the team's Twitter account. The Athletic suggested in April that Maccagnan could be on the hot season. In three seasons with the Jets, Lee averaged 80 tackles and four pass deflections per year, all while participating in 40 of 48 possible regular-season games (36 starts).

But Gase, however, downplayed any rumors of clashes as recently as Friday.

Gase was irritated by the suggestion there were problems between he and Maccagnan when asked about the reports, saying last Friday: "I don't know who decides to put that stuff out there".

News out of NY is the Jets have fired their general manager, Mike Maccagnan and VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger. "It kind of pisses me off a little bit".

Don't make Brett Brown the 76ers scapegoat: Macnow
The 76ers missed nine straight shots to start the game and didn't score until a 3-pointer by Redick midway through the quarter. He had a decent game in which he racked up 25 points, seven boards, and four assists to help lead his team to the road upset.

"Since we started, we've been in constant communication whether he's coming down to my office or I'm going to his office, that's all we're trying to do is make sure we're on the same page all the time".

Maccagnan served as GM of the club since January of 2015. However, Gase and Maccagnan reportedly disagreed on quite a few things, one of those being the acquiring of Jets running back, Le'Veon Bell.

However after the firing of Jets head coach Todd Bowles in late December - a champion of Lee's - and the team's decision to hand fellow off-ball linebacker C.J.

ESPN suggests the GM position could be taken up by Philadelphia Eagles executive Joe Douglas, who has some ties to Gase.
