Last week, Giants General Manager David Gettleman announced in a press release that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma. The news sent a shock through the NFL community, and Oakland Raiders Assistant Head Coach/Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia offered up his support for his friend Wednesday prior to the start of his press conference.
I just want to give a shout-out to David Gettleman in New York. We all know he’s battling cancer right now. He’s a real good friend of mine, certainly been a part of the National Football League for a long time. So, a lot of people here certainly know him within the Raiders organization. We’re certainly pulling for him and his fight right now. I apologize for letting me do that but thank you very much.”
