The Jets have requested permission to speak with two more candidates in their GM search — Vikings assistant GM George Paton and Seahawks co-director of player personnel Scott Fitterer, per the NFL Network. The Jets won't take "no" for an answer on Paton, who spurned their request in two previous GM searches. Don't expect the third time to be the charm. They also have sought permission for Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas and Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly. Interviews will start this week.
