With one vacancy in the coordinator ranks, the Giants could be facing another. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell will interview for the Redskins' head-coaching job Monday. If things go well, he could be the second high-ranking coach to depart. Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride retired last week.

Fewell, coming off a season in which the Giants' defense was ranked eighth in the NFL, has not interviewed for a head-coaching job since 2011. There are at least four other reported candidates for the Redskins, including Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.

Meanwhile, the Giants will reconvene for their evaluation meetings today. Among the topics expected to be discussed this week are the fates of position coaches and special-teams coordinator Tom Quinn.
