Dave Gettleman may be the general manager for the New York Giants, but he has played a major role in helping NFC East rival Washington land some key pieces.

Washington's current roster features talented players such as cornerback Josh Norman, safety Landon Collins and quarterback Dwayne Haskins. None of them would be in the nation's capital, though, without Gettleman's decision-making.

As Norman said on the Rich Eisen Show, Washington should consider having the opposing executive on its payroll:

"I think we need to put him on salary," Norman told host Rich Eisen. "I think we need to put him on salary. I mean, they need to protect Dave Gettleman at all costs up in New York, for sure. All costs, because he's winning for us. Geez Louise."

Gettleman was the general manager for the Carolina Panthers, who released Norman in 2016. He was also the GM for the Giants, who let Collins walk in free agency earlier this year. And yes, it was Gettleman who controversially chose Duke quarterback Daniel Jones over Haskins sixth overall in last month's draft.

If Washington goes on to win the NFC East (or more) in the next few seasons, owner Daniel Snyder and Co. may want to send Gettleman a thank you note.
