Giants To Hire Eagles’ Brandon Brown As Assistant GM

Howie Roseman will lose another lieutenant from his front office. The Giants are hiring Eagles director of player personnel Brandon Brown to be their assistant general manager, Adam Schefter of tweets.

This move comes barely a week after the Bears hired the Eagles’ other co-player personnel directorIan Cunningham — to be their assistant GM. Brown will join Joe Schoen‘s front office in New York. Previous Giants assistant GM Kevin Abrams is moving to a different role. He will become the team’s senior vice president of football operations and strategy.

A Giants organization that had either promoted GMs from within or hired familiar faces (in the case of Dave Gettleman) for the previous three decades now has two outsiders atop its front office. In Brown, the Giants are bringing in a young executive and one that has gone through multiple GM interviews. The Vikings interviewed Brown for their GM job last month.

Brown had been with the Eagles since 2017, joining the team ahead of its Super Bowl-winning season after spending two years as a Colts scout. The Eagles bumped Brown up to their pro scouting director post in 2019 and elevated him to VP of player personnel last year. Brown finished his Eagles run by overseeing their scouting department. Brown and Cunningham’s Philadelphia exits come not too long after the Jets and Browns, respectively, hired their GMs — Joe Douglas and Andrew Berry — from Roseman’s front office.

Abrams has since been the team’s assistant GM for the past 20 years, working under GMs Ernie AccorsiJerry Reese and Gettleman. The Giants interviewed Abrams for the GM job in 2017.

Kevin has been and will continue to be an invaluable resource for me and our staff,” Schoen said. “In his new role, Kevin will be assisting with the day-to-day football operation, administration and strategy of the organization moving forward.”
