The Giants fired coach Joe Judge on Tuesday evening. They continue their search for a General Manager, adding a ninth outside candidate to the list.

The Giants have requested permission from the Ravens to talk to director of player personnel Joe Hortiz, Pat Leonard of ESPN reports.

Eric DeCosta promoted Hortiz to director of player personnel in 2019 when DeCosta took over as Baltimore’s General Manager. Hortiz previously served as director of college scouting.

Hortiz joined the organization in 1998 as a scout and worked his way up in the department.

The Giants have had an opening since Monday when Dave Gettleman announced his retirement.

They have requested interviews with Titans vice president of player personnel Ryan Cowden and director of player personnel Monti Ossenfort, Bills assistant G.M. Joe Schoen, Chiefs executive director of player personnel Ryan Poles, Cardinals vice president of pro personnel Adrian Wilson and vice president of player personnel Quentin Harris and 49ers assistant G.M. Adam Peters and director of pro personnel Ran Carthon. The Giants also are expected to talk to their assistant G.M., Kevin Abrams.

  1. A G.M.’s number one responsibility is putting together a good roster and keeping a good roster within the salary cap. Most important is the QB. So, a GM’s number one qualification is the ability to evaluate QB’s. I’ve always thought it was strange to conduct interviews for this position without seeing all his QB evaluations over the last ten years or so. After that, I’d want to see all his scouting reports over the last ten years. I mean, you don’t sign a baseball player because he told you in an interview how good of a hitter he is. There are stats that help determine that. And anyone that tells you the draft is a crap shoot; I’d cross off my list before the B.S. session ever got started. But most owners know very little about the NFL, and so the hirings and firings will continue.

  2. You always interview a person to see his personality and his work and team will speak for its self. Hire a proven winner and the Bills Assistant GM has a proven record.
