HOUSTON — Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair acknowledged he hasn’t heard from Deshaun Watson since he hired Nick Caserio as general manager but said he hopes to speak with the franchise quarterback soon about the move.
“I’ve come to understand that it’s been reported that Deshaun feels left out of the process, but he and I had several visits and I understood his point of view before meeting with candidates,” McNair said Friday. “I’ve reached out to Deshaun about Nick’s hire, and I look forward to him getting back to me when he returns from his vacation.”
On Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Watson offered input on potential general manager candidates but that the Texans did not consider or consult with those endorsed by their franchise quarterback.
“Some things never change….” Watson tweeted Tuesday, with sources telling ESPN that the quarterback’s feelings were directed at the way business was conducted by the Texans.
Watson met with McNair over Zoom during the season to discuss candidates and the future of the franchise, and in his end-of-season news conference, Watson said he told McNair he hoped the team keeps offensive coordinator Tim Kelly
