The New York Giants stunned the NFL world when they announced that they had named Joe Judge as their next head coach.
They now may be looking to add another layer to that in adding Ex-Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens to their offensive staff.
According to Jordan Raanan of ESPN, Judge is expected to talk to Kitchens about joining his offensive staff. The two of them worked together at Mississipi State.

Despite his obvious failures a head coach, Kitchens did have a successful run as being only an offensive coordinator with the Browns in the 2018 season.
Baker Mayfield excelled in the second half of his rookie season under Kitchens and the Giants would be looking for the same with their young quarterback Daniel Jones.
Kitchens quickly ascended to head coach after the 2018 season, but was fired after the Browns went 6-10 with a season of high expectations.
However, despite this, it’s not clear whether Judge would consider Kitchens for his offensive coordinator or a different role on that side of the ball.
