Is Nick Caserio eager to leave Patriots for Texans?

A brief but unusual saga saw the Houston Texans deterred in their efforts to hire New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio as their new general manager, but the story may be just beginning.

But according to The Boston Globe's Ben Volin, that's not what Caserio wants.

Caserio has a year left on his contract, and last week's events make it clear the Patriots intend for him to honor it.

Dogs evolved 'sad puppy eyes' to appeal to humans
The team found that dogs used facial expressions far more when the human was looking at them. The muscles in the faces of dogs and wolves are similar, except above the eyes.

Caserio's deal reportedly runs through the 2020 NFL Draft. In turn, the Patriots rescinded their tampering charge against the Texans, and Robert Kraft said, "We appreciate the way [Texans chairman] Cal McNair has handled the situation".

Houston shockingly fired Brian Gaine after one season on June 7, one day after Easterby - who previously worked for New England - attended the Patriots' Super Bowl ring unveiling party, where Caserio was also present.

It shouldn't come as too much of shock, however, considering that if Caserio wanted to stay put as Bill Belichick's right-hand man he could have turned down interest from the Texans, as Volin notes.
