Giants Inquire About Mike Zimmer: (UPDATE) Zimmer Signs With Bengals

The Bergen Record is reporting that the Giants have inquired about current Bengals Defensive Coordinator Mike Zimmer.  Zimmer’s contract has now expired, but it is believed that he will re-sign with the Bengals.  Zimmer has also been tied to Mike Shanahan and the Washington Redskins.  The chances of the Giants landing Zimmer is a long shot in my opinion.

***(UPDATE)***   Mike Zimmer has resigned with the Bengals

Mike Zimmer’s return to Cincinnati as defensive coordinator should have a ripple effect around the league.

Zimmer was believed to be at the top of Washington’s wish list for their defensive coordinator job.  Following the Zimmer news, the Washington Post writes that Jim Haslett appears to be the front runner for the team’s position. Haslett met with Mike Shanahan and the Redskins Monday.

That would eliminate two candidates for the Giants even though they seemed to be at the bottom of the Giants wish list.
