Already boasting one of the top front offices in football, the New York Giants persist in integrating high-quality personnel into their team.
Following their acquisition of Brandon Brown, a leading talent evaluator from the Philadelphia Eagles last year, general manager Joe Schoen recently recruited Ryan Cowden, a former executive for both the Tennessee Titans and Carolina Panthers, according to the New York Post.
The Giants interviewed Ryan Cowden for their vacant GM spot:
Cowden had applied for the open general manager position following Dave Gettleman’s departure, but the Giants decided to hire Schoen instead.
Nonetheless, Schoen and Cowden have a good rapport, and despite Cowden’s recent unexplained departure from the Titans, his multifaceted experience adds value to the Giants.
Over the years, Cowden has fulfilled various roles, including Assistant Director of College Scouting, and offers a wealth of experience as a scout in numerous capacities.
Given this, he could potentially fill the currently vacant role of Director of College Scouting for Big Blue.
Considering Cowden was most recently a contender for a general manager position, his addition to the Giants’ roster of exceptional evaluators will be an asset for a team that is still in the rebuilding phase.
Having recently drafted several high-quality players and acquired essential free agents, Cowden’s inclusion aligns well with Schoen’s overall strategy.
As an experienced draft evaluator and scout, Cowden will bring yet another keen eye to a burgeoning front office already comprising some of the best talents in football.
