Giants rumors: Dave Gettleman could be on his way out in New York
After just over two years as the general manager of the New York Giants, Dave Gettleman may be on his way out of the Big Apple. In a Monday column for The Athletic, NFL Insider Jay Glazer wrote that Gettleman was nearly fired earlier this year but has been given one more season to right the ship.
“I don’t know if he’ll end up retiring but yeah, I think he was close this year. He made a case to ownership to come back. He presented a plan for how he’ll turn it around in a year. That needs to happen. If it doesn’t happen, he’ll be gone and rightfully so. If he doesn’t follow through, it’s time to go. I would hope that Gettleman has also learned a bit about himself and his interactions with people during this process. Anytime you’re on the hot seat, you have to look inside yourself and say, ‘What’s my responsibility in this?’ and make changes,” Glazer wrote.
Under Gettleman’s leadership, the Giants have gone just 9-23 in the last two seasons. Prior to being the GM for the Giants, Gettleman served the same role for the Carolina Panthers. In Carolina, Gettleman found a considerable amount of success with the Panthers making the Super Bowl in 2016.
However, before Carolina, Gettleman was a part of the Giants organization for 14 seasons as both a scout and personnel director.
If New York can’t improve on their 4-12 record from last season, it’s likely a curtain call for Gettleman as a part of the Giant’s organization
