Former Giants GM Jerry Reese, who was fired along with head coach Ben McAdoo on Monday, released a statement on Tuesday.
"I would like to thank the New York Football Giants for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing franchise for the past twenty-three years," Reese said. "My time here has been filled with many great memories. Thank you John and the Mara family, Steve and the Tisch family for your confidence in me for so many seasons.
"I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Tom Coughlin and Ben McAdoo for their commitment to the NYG and my time working with them," Reese continued. "I'm thankful to the late George Young, who hired me, and to Ernie Accorsi for grooming me."
