It was not a promise but it is a hope. Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman wants to add the quarterback of the future and get him behind Eli Manning.
Does this mean that a prospect at the most important position on the field will be added to the list, via the NFL project or some other means?
"If all goes well, probably," Gettleman told WFAN Monday.
Last month, the head of the football game for the Giants expressed his great desire to find the next quarterback of the franchise. The urgency has never been greater, with Eli Manning, 38, entering the final year of his contract. Gettleman said "I would be a real clown" if he did not recognize the need for new blood, but he did not guarantee he would get one this year.
"Would I like to do something now? Probably, '' said Gettleman. "But I have to believe he's the good guy to be the quarterback of this iconic franchise."
Gettleman must consider two paths. He may take one in this year's project – Gettleman said it was the "most likely" scenario – with Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins and Missouri's Drew Lock the two most likely options at this point because the giants have two choices (Nos. 6 and 17) in the first round. Otherwise, the Giants could try to get out Josh Rosen of Arizona, if the Cardinals really want to take Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the repechage.
"It's obvious that the ideal situation is to bring in a young child and let him learn from the old professional," said Gettleman, recalling the "Kansas City model" that he wished to replicate. Pat Mahomes sits for a year. Alex Smith. "The worst thing to do is to force something. Do I feel obliged to do something now? . Not & # 39; & # 39;
