NFL general managers tend to be relatively anonymous, but the Giants interviewed a GM candidate with plenty of name recognition Thursday.
ESPN analyst Louis Riddick is the latest potential GM to meet with the team, which also has confirmed interviews with former Panthers GM Dave Gettleman and Giants VP of player evaluation Marc Ross.
Before joining ESPN as a front office insider for the 2013 NFL season, Riddick held scouting and personnel roles with the Redskins (2001-07) and Eagles (2008-13). He most recently served as Philadelphia’s director of pro personnel from 2010-13.
Quessenberry, who has been on Houston’s non-football illness list since 2015, finished his last round of chemotherapy in April just in time for OTAs. The 27-year-old was diagnosed with the disease in June 2014 after he felt constantly tired and had a continual cough. Even though his cancer was said to be in remission in February 2015, he completed his final treatment this spring.
The sixth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft has yet to play in an NFL game after spending his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a broken foot but he has remained with the Texans on their non-football injury list.

“Nothing is actually proven,” Newton told reporters Wednesday. “It’s just another person’s word against another person’s word. Needless to say, I still think extremely highly of Mr. Richardson. I don’t even know any of the sources. I’m reaching to find it. I take sexual assault extremely serious, and I didn’t want to offend anybody by that. Just having a lot of allegations thrown at a person isn’t fair.”
Newton said Richardson has “enlightened me on so many different types of things, on and off the field,” and he respects the man who was instrumental in drafting him out of Auburn in 2011.
The 28-year-old Newton had to deal with allegations himself after he left Auburn, which gave him a tremendous amount of perspective in incidents which have been tried in the public’s eye.
“I basically almost got an NCAA … almost been suspended, just off an allegation,” Newton said Wednesday. “That’s how I feel about it. Not comparing apples to apples. It’s still something somebody said. When I went through my allegations, it was all false.”
