The Giants primary focus is transitioning from Eli Manning to rookie QB Daniel Jones. Greg Roman has had success with Lamar Jackson and could maximize Saquon Barkley to take pressure off of Daniel Jones. Mike McCarthy also has experience with QB transitions, having developed Aaron Rodgers after Brett Farve retired.
Should Mara choose to take a risk, be on the lookout for Dan Campbell, who is currently the Saints TE coach. Campbell played for the Giants from 1999 to 2002 and has drawn interest from Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals and the Green Bay Packers. Don’t count out Matt Rhule, who also has ties to New York thanks to his brief stint as the assistant offensive line coach in 2012.
