NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Monday that the Jets plan to interview Miami Dolphins pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Darrell Bevell for their vacant offensive coordinator position.

Bevell is the third known candidate to interview for the job after Philadelphia Eagles passing game coordinator Kevin Patullo and New England Patriots tight ends coach Nick Caley.

Of the three, Bevell undoubtedly has the most experience. He has 15 years of offensive coordinator experience at the NFL level including notable stints with the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, and, most recently, the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jets aren't the only team interested in Bevell, however. The Washington Commanders also reportedly requested to speak with Bevell for their open offensive coordinator position.

Bevell's experience and lengthy resume have multiple teams around the league interested. Some consider him to be the early favorite for the Jets' job, but the Commanders might look to change that.

Todd Monken attracting interest from NFL teams

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported on Monday that Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken is garnering interest from NFL teams inquiring about the well-respected offensive assistant taking an OC job in the NFL.

Monken has an excellent reputation around the NFL and was considered a finalist for multiple head coach jobs, the Jets included, not too long ago. That was before an ill-fated stint as Freddie Kitchens' offensive coordinator in Cleveland tanked his stock.

Monken has worked hard to rehab his reputation at Georgia, with his most impressive achievement being the work he's done with former walk-on-turned-Heisman-finalist Stetson Bennett.

If Monken is interested in returning to the NFL as an offensive coordinator, he should be at the very top of the Jets' list. This would be a home-run hire.

Jets claim Isaiah Mack off waivers

General manager Joe Douglas has a lengthy history of excellent waiver claims over the last few years, and he's looking to add another name to that growing list in the form of defensive tackle Isaiah Mack.

The Jets claimed Mack off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, and the 26-year-old defensive lineman will look to compete for a spot on the Jets' roster in 2023.

Mack appeared in 13 games for the Tennessee Titans as a rookie in 2019 and an additional six games in 2020 before he was waived and claimed off waivers by the New England Patriots.

Mack's most recent stint before Seattle was with the Baltimore Ravens where he appeared in four games over two years. Mack was a summer standout of the Ravens' this past year and could provide depth to a relatively thin interior defensive line room.
