Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington are reporting that Gregg Williams is being considered for the Jets’ defensive coordinator position on Adam Gase’s staff.
A separate report mentioned that Vance Joseph could be an option for the job as well.
Williams actually interviewed for the head-coaching job, but the Browns elected to hire Freddie Kitchens on Wednesday.
Williams, 60, has worked for several NFL teams over the course of his career including the Oilers/Titans, Bills, Redskins, Jaguars, Saints, and Rams before the Browns hired him as their defensive coordinator for the 2017 season.
After the Browns fired Hue Jackson, Williams was elevated to interim head coach.
Under Williams, the Browns went 5-3 this season.
