Report: Jack Easterby still has significant role in Texans front office

Houston Texans

Jack Easterby’s outsized role in the Houston Texans front office has been pinpointed as a huge issue by many. There was hope that hiring Nick Caserio as the team’s new general manager might limit Easterby’s influence, but that certainly does not appear to have happened.

According to longtime Houston radio host Lance Zierlein, who also serves as a draft analyst for NFL.com, Easterby is still “very much involved” on the football side of things for the Texans. Zierlein says Easterby is even speaking to agents on behalf of the team.

The Texans have insisted that Easterby’s role is returning to that of a character coach. Despite that, Easterby keeps popping up all over the team’s football operations. His presence continues to cause unnecessary drama within the organization, and has even been cited as one of the reasons Deshaun Watson has grown so disillusioned with the franchise.

Caserio is the man in charge in Houston, but he seems to have a very strong relationship with Easterby. So does owner Cal McNair. As long as that’s true, it seems like Easterby will continue to have a large presence.
