Report: Giants could eye Patriots exec if ready to move on from Dave Gettleman


With the Giants heading into Week 8 at a paltry 1-6, the writing seems to be on the wall that general manager Dave Gettleman will not be with the franchise beyond this year.

According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, many within the Giants organization believe the Mara family should have moved on from Gettleman last year when they fired head coach Pat Shurmur and some believe it is "inevitable" as that pressure is beginning to mount again.

Should the Giants part ways with Gettleman, they could once again turn to the New England Patriots to fill a void within the organization.

Per La Canfora, the Giants have long had interest in Patriots personnel executive Nick Caserio, and he would be among the top candidates for the position.

Caserio has previously withdrawn from general manager opportunities or has been prevented from pursuing others, but his contract makes it clear he can depart for any GM opening and the Giants job may be particularly appealing to Caserio should it open.

He has strong ties with Giants head coach Joe Judge, a former Patriots assistant, and it would allow him to stay within the northeast – something that would appeal to him, per La Canfora.

The Houston Texans have previously tried to hire Caserio in the past and are another team in the GM market, but the lack of draft picks is a red flag for any potential general manager candidate.
