The Giantsannounced Thursday they have interviewed former NFL player and personnel executive Louis Riddick for their GM vacancy. Riddick interviewed with Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch and former general manager Ernie Accorsi, who was recently retained by the team as a consultant for its GM search.
Riddick, 48, has 13 years of experience in league front offices, working for the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles. He served as a pro scout for the Giants from 2001-04 before being promoted to director of pro personnel (2005-07). After joining the Eagles as a pro scout in 2008, he eventually worked his way up to the team's pro personnel director, a position he served from 2010-13. He currently works as a football analyst for ESPN.
Abrams is the fourth candidate to interview for the job. Marc Ross, the team's vice president of player evaluation, interviewed on Monday.
