According to a source, the New York Giants are expected to hire Dave Gettleman as its next general manager. The 66-year-old would replace Jerry Reese, who was recently fired by the team.

Reese, along with former head coach Bob McAdoo, was fired after the Eli Manning benching fiasco. Kevin Abrams, who’s been with the team for nearly the past two decades, was promoted to the interim general manager after Reese was fired.

Gettleman was fired by the Carolina Panthers this past July. He was their general manager from 2013 through 2017.

Gettleman has become their clear-cut favorite once John Dorsey spurred the team for a potential interview. Days before being hired by the Giants, the Cleveland Browns hired Dorsey hours after firing former personnel guy Sashi Brown.

Gettleman has a lot of ties to the Giants organization. Prior to being hired by the Panthers, he was their Senior Pro Personnel Analyst in 2012.

He was also their Pro Personnel Director from 1999 through 2011. He was also a scout for the team in 1998.

As a collective group, Gettleman was a favor in helping the Giants to two Super Bowl wins over the New England Patriots.

Before coming to the Giants, he was a scout for the Denver Broncos from 1994 through 1997. He was also a Buffalo Bills scout from 1987 through 1993.

He began his journey as a Bills scouting intern in 1986.
