In hiring Nick Caserio, the former New England Patriots director of player personnel, as the fifth general manager in Texans history, McNair pairs him with another person from his Patriots past: executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby.

Regardless of how fans associate Caserio’s and Easterby’s names and what they think of trying to create an organization that is run similarly to the Patriots, this is a step in the right direction for the Texans. Caserio has helped build three Super Bowl-winning rosters, while Easterby was among the most influential team employees during the Patriots’ multiple-championship run.
