Jerry Reese wants back in the NFL.
The former two-time Super Bowl-winning Giants general manager interviewed for the Jacksonville Jaguars’ GM opening, according to NFL Network, and could be a candidate for other teams.
Reese, 57, has been out of the NFL for three years since the Giants fired him and Ben McAdoo with four games left in the 2017 season after a 2-10 start. Reese joined the Giants in 1994 as a scout and was with the organization for 24 years, the last 11 of those as the GM.
The Giants won Super Bowl XLII in Reese’s first year as the GM after he took over for Ernie Accorsi, and he was at the helm for the Giants’ Super Bowl win four years later.
Reese has a relationship with Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule from Rhule’s time as a Giants assistant in 2012, according to NFL Network. The Panthers fired GM Marty Hurney last week.
The Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions and Houston Texans are also searching for a new general manager.
