Kevin Abrams reportedly NOT a candidate to be Giants GM

Longtime New York Giants assistant general manager Kevin Abrams is reportedly not running to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Dave Gettleman.

Abrams, if this report is correct, may have no role in the revamped front office. Paul Schwartz of the New York Post tweeted Monday night that Abrams is “respected in the building and it remains to be seen if he has a role to play with the Giants moving forward.”

It was seen as a surprise. The Giants are known for turning in on themselves and relying on people they know and are comfortable with. Abrams, with the franchise for 23 years, received an interview before the Giants hired Gettleman to replace Jerry Reese, and there was a report a few weeks ago that Abrams would “get high consideration” to replace Gettleman. .

It may also be love at first sight for head coach Joe Judge, as FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported this weekend that in his pitch to stay for a third season, Judge was pushing Abrams to the top position. .

In acknowledging Gettleman’s retirement, co-owner John Mara said the team would be pursuing “a full search” for a new general manager. This could be a sign that the Giants’ ownership is serious about it.

So far, the Giants have requested talks with Tennessee Titans executives Monti Ossenfort and Ryan Cowden, Kansas City Chiefs executive director Ryan Poles, and Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Joe Schoen.
