The news of Maccagnan’s firing comes as a surprise to most, but according to Ian Rapoport there were disagreements between Gase and Maccagnan on how money was spent. The two focal points of these disagreements were the contract size of both Le’Veon Bell and C.J. Mosley.
Liked the player, didn’t love the money is how I heard it on Le’Veon Bell. Adam Gase also didn’t love the price tag on CJ Mosley. It all added up. https://t.co/BOZw4b5GwX
