Jason Garrett will stay in the NFC East
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Jason Garrett has agreed to become the New York Giants' new offensive coordinator.
ESPN first reported the story
Garrett was the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys the past nine seasons until he was recently let go after missing the playoffs. The Giants also went through a head coaching change after this year and hired former Patriots special teams coach Joe Judge shortly after firing Pat Shurmur.
The Garrett hire marks the first major move for Judge, who could use some experience as a first-year head coach. Garrett was an OC for the Cowboys before being named head coach in 2010 and spent the past 13 years with the organization. Now Garrett will get to use his experience with the Cowboys against them, and he has a young offense to work with.
While the development of quarterback Daniel Jones will be a priority, Garrett should have fun working with an offensive weapon like running back Saquon Barkley. The Giants receiving corps has shown potential when healthy and the offensive line steadily improved compared to the previous season.
