New York Giants Officially Name Jerry Reese the New General Manager: The New York Giants have officially announced that Jerry Reese is the team’s new general manager, replacing Ernie Accorsi. The 43-year old Reese served as the Giants’ director of player personnel for the past four years. His new official title will be vice president and general manager.

Accorsi retired yesterday as his contract expired. He had served as the Giants’ general manager for the past nine seasons. Accorsi has been lobbying ownership to promote Reese as his replacement. Reese has received interest from other teams, including the Buccaneers in 2003, the Dolphins in 2004, and very recently from the Titans.

Reese joined the Giants scouting department in December 1994.

The Giants will hold a 10:30AM press conference today to introduce Reese as the team’s new general manager.

The Giants only interviewed one external candidate for the position – ex-Texans and ex-Redskins general manager Charlie Casserly.

Miami Dolphins Blocking the Giants: According to The New York Times, the Giants asked the Miami Dolphins for permission to interview their defensive coordinator, Dom Capers, and their quarterbacks coach, ex-Giant Jason Garrett. The Dolphins turned down both requests. As reported this past weekend, Capers signed a new 3-year deal with the Dolphins. The Dolphins may still name Capers their new head coach.
