3. Freddie Kitchens
Another former head coach that the Giants could be looking at for their offensive coordinator vacancy is former Cleveland Browns Head Coach Freddie Kitchens. While the Kitchens experiment was unsuccessful in Cleveland, he could bring his minor experience as a head coach to the Giants’ rookie head coach, hoping that he learned from his time in Cleveland.
One of the things that Freddie Kitchens has shown he likes to do is put multiple tight ends on the field, calling 12 personnel the 6th most time in the NFL. 12 personnel puts one running back, two tight ends, and two wide receivers on the field at once.
The Giants would likely look to strengthen the second tight end position in the event that they hire Freddie Kitchens, but the rest of the Giants roster already fits his style of calling 11 (one running back, one tight end, three wide receivers) or 12 personnel, which he used 80% of the time in Cleveland in 2019. Kitchens has also shown to be a fan of play-action passes, which Daniel Jones excelled in as a rookie, completing 69.4% of his play-action passes; good for 9th in the NFL this past season.
