Clearly, the Texans were very interested in Nick Caserio as their next general manager after firing Brian Gaine in June. But, the Patriots filed tampering charges and it obviously didn't happen.

Listen to your team news NOW.

This doesn't mean the Texans have given up completely.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, they are not hiring a general manager for the 2019 season and instead will split the duties among front office members including Matt Bazirgan, James Liipfert, Chris Olsen and Jack Easterby. Easterby and Liipfert have both worked in the Patriots organization.

With that being said, it sets them up to potentially go after Caserio next offseason when his contract with the Patriots reportedly expires. It's unclear whether or not Caserio would be interested, but there is a ton of familiarity, including with Bill O'Brien as head coach.

It would seem the Caserio to Houston talk is not quite over and may not go away for awhile.
