The New York Giants are reportedly searching for a potential new general manager to replace Dave Gettleman. The preferred choice seems to be current Patriots director of player personnel, Nick Caserio.
Caserio has been with the Patriots organization since 2001, where he started off as an assistant. In 2007, he served as New England’s wide receiver coach. From 2008 to present time, he has had been the director of player personnel.
Of course, there is a connection between Caserio and Giants head coach Joe Judge. The two worked in the Patriots organization from 2012-2019, leading many to believe that there wouldn’t be any issue with Caserio wanting his own choice of head coach.
Despite the 1-6 start, Joe Judge and his coaching staff have done a wonderful job keeping the players fighting throughout the season. It is a small step in the right direction for a Giants team that has been one of the worst in the NFL over the last few seasons.
The team has not had much success at all under current GM Dave Gettleman. Since 2018, they have gone just 10-29 and have had a top-6 draft pick the last three years. The 2020 season seems to be heading for a similar result.
While Gettleman has made some good signings and draft picks, there have been many questionable moves to go along with them. But, he will forever be linked to one player in particular, quarterback Daniel Jones.
Jones has only won three games since being drafted sixth overall in 2019, a spot many believed was too high to take him. He has already turned the ball over 33 times in his 19 career starts and has only thrown for five touchdowns in seven games so far in 2020.
A change at GM might be necessary to try and turn the franchise’s recent bad fortunes around.
