Gold Jacket Edward J. DeBartolo, Jr. was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. Earlier this week, PFT caught up with the Hall of Famer and DeBartolo expressed his sentiments of one day seeing former New York Giants General Manager George Young enshrined in Canton.
Young was the Giants General Manager for 19 seasons, with the team reaching the playoffs eight times, winning the division four times and producing two Super Bowl titles. Before Young was hired in 1979, the Giants had not reached the playoffs since 1963.
