NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the team is expected to hire Texans college scouting director Mike Maccagnan as the new general manager, according to two sources informed of their thinking.
Maccagnan has been in New York the past three days meeting with owner Woody Johnson, per Rapoport.
Maccagnan has been part of some up and down drafts in Houston, highlighted by nabbing All-Universe defensive lineman J.J. Watt.
Maccagnan is viewed as a very good talent evaluator, something previous GM John Idzik wasn't considered when hired two years ago.
The new GM's first task will be hiring a coach to lead a spiraling football team.
