Report: Giants GM Dave Gettleman Unlikely to Return Next Season

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman is unlikely to return to the team next season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 

Gettleman joined the Giants after the 2017 NFL season, but New York has just an 18–40 record throughout his tenure. The Giants enter their Week 12 contest against the Eagles at 3–7 on the season and in last place in the NFC East.

Sunday's report comes days removed from New York firing offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. Garrett, who was hired ahead of last season, helped the Giants muster 30 points just once in two years. New York finished 31st in the league in points scored last season, and it enters Week 12 at 24th in scoring this season.

Per NFL Network, Gettleman, 70, may choose to retire.

Gettleman spent 15 years in the Giants front office, starting as a scout in 1998, then serving as the team's personnel director from 1999 to 2011 and as senior pro personnel analyst in 2012.

He left the Giants to serve as the Panthers' general manager. From 2013 to '17, he guided Carolina to a 51–28–1 regular-season record and a Super Bowl 50 appearance. 

New York has two first-round picks in the 2022 NFL draft, slated to be No. 5 and No. 8 entering Sunday's action.
