Now that the 2013 NFL draft is in the books, the New York Jets are undergoing a major makeover in their front office.

The latest report comes from Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, who reports New York will hire former Arizona Cardinals general manager Rod Graves to join the team's front office. New York also didn’t renew the contracts of former Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen and former director of football administration Ari Nassim this week, according to ESPNNewYork.com.

Changes to New York’s front office should not come as a surprise. First-year general manager John Idzik has made an immediate impact since joining the Jets. He started by cutting overpaid veterans to get under the salary cap. Then, Idzik made two major decisions: he traded star cornerback Darrelle Revis and cut popular backup quarterback Tim Tebow. Remaking the front office now is Idzik's next focus.

Graves brings a lot of experience to the Jets. He starting in the NFL in 1982 and worked with the Chicago Bears, Philadelphia Eagles and most recently the Cardinals.
