The Giants interviewed former Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers on Thursday, the Daily News has confirmed, for a senior defensive staff position that they would add if he accepted. NFL Network first reported the interview.
Rodgers, 49, reportedly is deciding between the Giants and Tampa Bay, where fired Jets coach Todd Bowles now is new Bucs coach Bruce Arians’ defensive coordinator.
Rodgers has ties in the Giants organization from his time coaching Miami’s defensive line. He coached Vernon for three seasons (2012-2014) and worked those three years on staff with Giants defensive backs coach Lou Anarumo. And safety Michael Thomas was on the Dolphins while Rodgers was there in 2013-14.
