New Giants GM makes personnel changes first full day on the job
It’s Dave Gettleman’s first full day on the job as the Giants new general manager, and he isn’t wasting any time making changes to the front office along with roster moves.
Gettleman started cleaning house by firing longtime executive Marc Ross and waiving right tackle Bobby Hart, the team announced Saturday.
And 33 seems to be a good one too, even if it involves a challenge like trying to win in Utah for the first time since 2011.
Where I come from, it doesn’t matter where your birthday is, James said. I’m 33 years old, and the way I grew up, not many guys make it past 18. So I’m blessed to be in this position where I am today, and I don’t take this moment for granted.
According to ESPN, Oakland is planning to pursue Gruden in the offseason to take over as the team’s head coach. This would mean the Raiders intend to move on from Jack Del Rio as their head man whom they signed to an extension in 2015.
Del Rio did a very good job two years ago leading Oakland to a 12-win season and an AFC West title, but thanks to an assortment of injuries and a less-than-stellar this year the Raiders may be planning to move on. Pro Football Talk reported last week that sources said there was a 50-50 chance for Del Rio to be gone at the end of the season. This new rumor may be the reason.
Gruden has yet to say he is considering taking a head coaching job.
I don’t want to sit here and speculate. … There is no news to report, Gruden said Saturday. I can’t say I haven’t taken any phone calls. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others. … Yeah, sometimes owners. Guys want to bounce ideas off me. I’m here to help people.
