The New York Giants cleared house following the 2021 NFL season as general manager Dave Gettleman retired and head coach Joe Judge was fired. It appears that one of those jobs is about to be filled, though. Buffalo Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen is on his way to New York.

The Giants have already informed other GM candidates that the position has been filled, and a deal has been agreed upon. The 42-year-old is set to become the seventh GM in Giants history and the fourth hire under owner John Mara.

Schoen was called in for a physical interview on Tuesday morning and it all seemed to speed up from there. He had served in his role with the Bills since 2017, while also spending time with the Carolina Panthers and Miami Dolphins during his two-decade NFL journey.

The DePaul graduate has worked his way up using his abilities to scout talent and find the diamonds in the rough. That is likely what drew the Giants to him in the first place. Of course, New York struggled to draft impact players during Gettleman's era as GM and it showed on the field.

For now, the New York fan base will have to sit back and hope that Schoen can guide this team in a new direction. A direction hat hopefully includes a playoff berth in the coming years. The Giants will look to start fresh with the 5th and 7th overall picks in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.
