10. NY Jets offensive coordinator target: Nathaniel Hackett

Nathaniel Hackett is another name Cimini mentioned as a potential target for the Jets. Much like Nagy, Hackett is a veteran offensive coach who endured a, let's call it "unsuccessful," tenure as a head coach.

Hackett was fired after less than a full season as head coach of the Denver Broncos last year in what is likely one of the most disastrous stints as a head coach in NFL history.

That said, he's found some success as an offensive coordinator in the past with Jacksonville and Green Bay. He helped lead Blake Bortles to the AFC Championship Game in 2018 and worked under Saleh's best friend, Matt LaFleur, with the Packers.

Hackett's father, Paul, is a former offensive coordinator of the Jets as well so he has ties to the organization in more than one way. It would make sense if the Jets inquired about Hackett.

9. NY Jets offensive coordinator target: Greg Olson

Numerous sources have connected former Las Vegas Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson to the Jets, including Cimini. Olson makes a ton of sense for the Jets if they're serious about acquiring Derek Carr.

Olson worked closely with Carr as his offensive coordinator from 2018 to 2021 and previously crossed paths with Robert Saleh in Jacksonville. The connections are obvious.

Olson spent the 2022 season as a senior offensive assistant under Sean McVay with the Los Angeles Rams. With the Rams reportedly targeting Mike LaFleur for their offensive coordinator job, perhaps the two teams can exchange an informal swap of sorts.

A Carr/Olson ticket is likely very appealing for the Jets.
