The New York Giants have begun their search for a new general manager. Former GM Ernie Accorsi is helping lead the search.
In a perfect world, the Giants would have somebody in place by the end of the year, there is just one problem with that. The NFL prohibits interviewing anyone from another team until the end of the season. That means if someone on the Giants radar is currently employed by another franchise, they will not be able to hire interview them until the end of the year. They can’t hire an executive from another team until that team’s season is over, which means if they want to go after someone with a winning franchise, they could have to wait until February.
ESPN named Green Bay’s Eliot Wolf as the top candidate for the job. The Lions tried to interview him last season as well but were denied by the Packer’s front office. This time around it may be more difficult to do so. Wolf is highly regarded because of his ability to evaluate talent. Green Bay has hinted that they’d like to make him Ted Thompson’s successor but it remains to be seen if he is willing to wait it out.
Nick Caserio was another name on ESPN’s list. He is currently employed by the New England Patriots and is well regarded. In what ESPN called a perfect world, Caserio would like to become a general manager and bring Josh McDaniels along to be his head coach. The Giants also just so happen to have both spots available.
