Giants Complete Interview with Cardinals VP of Pro Personnel Adrian Wilson

Giants have now met with two general manager candidates as they look to get someone in place prior to starting a head coach search.

The Giants announced they have completed their interview with Arizona Cardinals Vice President of Player Personnel Adrian Wilson for the team's vacant general manager job.

Wilson met Wednesday afternoon with team president John Mara, chairman Steve Tisch and senior vice president of player personnel Chris Mara. That same trio earlier in the day met with Bills assistant general manager Joe Shoen.

Wilson spent 12 seasons (2001-12) playing with the Cardinals after joining the team as a third-round selection (64th overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft from North Carolina State. He also spent one season with the Patriots before wrapping up his playing career with the Bears in 2014.
