Here are some of the names they discussed:
- Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
- Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
- Marcus Davenport, DE, UTSA
While there were some initial reports suggesting the Jets would be content with Jeremy Bates being the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach, they’re doing their due diligence.
Former Lions QB coach Brian Callahan has interviews scheduled with Jets and Titans, per source. At Tennessee that is for OC job. Also wouldn’t rule him out for the #Giants.

Multiple reports have revealed that the Jets will be interviewing Detroit Lions quarterback coach Brian Callahan for a lateral move to gang green. If you remember the Jets chased Callahan last season for their offensive coordinator position.

There’s been a lot of question marks surrounding former Oklahoma star Baker Mayfield as he enters the 2018 NFL Draft process. But he has answered a few early questions…
Corrected wingspan measurement from earlier tweet on Baker Mayfield:
Height: 6003 (6'0 3/8)
Hand: 9 1/2
Arm: 30 1/2
Wingspan 73 7/8

Many thought Mayfield would measure under six feet, he passed that test. Mayfield had bigger hands than expected (that’s big because smaller quarterbacks need bigger hands to overcompensate for the fact they’re short and they won’t be as fumble prone).
