The New York Jets have also requested permission to interview Saints director of player personnel, Ryan Pace. Ryan was promoted to the position in 2013 and handled the responsibilities of overseeing scouting and evaluation of both college and professional players.
The request is more courtesy than formality, as Ryan is in the final year of his contract. Last year the Dolphins requested and were refused an interview of Pace. The Saints Director of personnel has now drawn interest from 2 teams, The Bears and the Jets for the general manager position. Good luck Ryan.
