Texans no longer pursuing Patriots’ Caserio for GM

The Houston Texans’ search for a new general manager carries on, and they’re no longer looking at a certain Patriots exec to fill the void.
The team announced Friday that it has stopped pursuing New England’s de facto general manager Nick Caserio — his official title is director of player personnel — to replace Brian Gaine, whom the Texans declared last Friday.
“When we started the procedure to interview Nick Caserio to our EVP/GM place, we consulted the League office on numerous occasions, followed the procedures outlined in the League’s rules and believed we were in full compliance,” Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair said in a statement. “We have been made aware of certain terms in Nick’s contract with the Patriots. Once we were made aware of these contract terms, I informed Mr. [Bob] Kraft that we’d quit pursuing Nick.”

The change of course comes just a couple of days following the Patriots filed tampering charges against the Texans for attempting to hire Caserio. On Friday, New England dropped the prices in the Aftermath of Houston waiving the white flag, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported, a source.
Patriots owner Bob Kraft also released a statement indicating all is well between both organizations.
“The Houston Texans and the New England Patriots have always had a great working relationship,” Kraft said. “We appreciate the way Cal McNair has managed this circumstance.”
Pelissero added that Caserio is under contract with the Patriots through the 2020 NFL Draft. The Texans, upon learning the facts of his deal, strove to engage in trade talks with New England for Caserio but were turned down, according to Pelissero.
Houston now heads back to the drawing board to fulfill its vacancy. The club interviewed two candidates last weekend former GMs Ray Farmer and Martin Mayhew.
