As we wait for the New York Jets' general manager search to unfold, Adam Gase is making another move. The interim GM hasn't done anything too splashy since Mike Maccagnan was fired, and has only made a couple of minor moves. Now he's adding a familiar player, claiming linebacker James Burgess off waivers from the Dolphins, per Field Yates of

Burgess spent the end of last season on Miami's practice squad when Gase was the Dolphins' head coach. Gase apparently liked what he saw, and jumped at the opportunity to bring him in after Miami waived him late last week.

Burgess has bounced around a lot since entering the league as an undrafted free agent back in 2016. The Louisville product originally signed with Miami, then spent time on the offseason rosters and practice squads of the Chargers, Ravens, and Jaguars. He finally found a more permanent role with the Browns, and became a starter in 2017.

That season he appeared in 14 games and started nine, racking up 70 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and four sacks. He was expected to compete for a starting job in 2018, but got hurt early on. He was eventually released with an injury designation before latching on with the Dolphins.

The Jets' GM search has been heating up a bit, but nothing seems imminent yet. Eagles exec Joe Douglas is seen by many as the favorite for the job, and he has ties to Gase. No matter who is chosen, it seems clear that Gase will be handpicking Maccagnan's successor even if he insists publicly that CEO-owner Christopher Johnson is making the call.
