Deshaun Watson is reportedly none too pleased about how the Houston Texans handled their general manager search.
On Tuesday night, the Houston Texans made a splash on the front office front. Three months after firing Bill O’Brien, the Texans signed New England Patriots’ director of player personnel Nick Caserio to become their new general manager. It was a big splash hire, but all the attention went to quarterback Deshaun Watson, who tweeted out that “some thing’s never change.” We now have reasoning behind said tweet.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Watson is “extremely unhappy” with the organization after owner Cal McNair promised the quarterback that he’d be involved in the general manager and head coaching search this offseason. However, Watson was never asked his opinion about hiring Caserio.
Rapoport noted that Watson’s frustration has nothing to do with Caserio, but how the process went down without him.
This has nothing to do with the actual hire of GM Nick Caserio. It has to do with the process. https://t.co/6ObYHqrdgB
