The Jets have bolstered their analytics department, hiring Matt Sheldon as director of football research and strategy. (This was a quiet move; the team made no announcement.) He held the same title with the Dolphins in 2017-2018 — his connection to Adam Gase. Prior to that, he spent three seasons with the Bears in a similar role, crossing paths with Joe Douglas. Sheldon has a coaching background, but he got involved in analytics in recent years.
