Jerry Reese’s experience could be an asset for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The first thing that stands out in Jerry Reese’s resume is the fact he was the New York Giants general manager when they won the Super Bowl in 2007 and 2012. That should get pretty much anyone’s attention, as winning one, let alone two is the ultimate football achievement and the most challenging one to earn.
Reese took over the job in 2007, the same year the ‘G-Men’ won their third Super Bowl. His first draft class had an immediate impact and contributors such as cornerback Aaron Ross, wide receiver Steve Smith, running back Ahmad Bradshaw, and linebacker Zak DeOssie played a key role in the team’s championship run.
Later in his tenure in the ‘Big Apple’, Reese drafted dynamic playmakers such as defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham, tight end Evan Engram and running back Saquon Barkley. Out of all the candidates that the Jaguars have reportedly interviewed for their general manager job so far, Reese is the only one that has a Super Bowl ring. That could end up giving him an edge.
