Patriots file tampering charges against Texans amid pursuit of Nick Caserio

13 June 2019

The Pats filed tampering charges against the Texans for their pursuit of Caserio, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The NFL now is expected to gather relevant informant to open its investigation against Houston, per sources.

Houston fired GM Brian Gaine one day after the unveiling party.

There is no word yet on whether or not the Texans have interviewed Caserio, though they have reached out to the Patriots as early as June 7 to request permission to interview him.

However, the two teams could reportedly potentially come to a mutually beneficial agreement.

The New England Patriots filed a tampering complaint against the Houston Texans.

Schefter reported that Texans executive vice president of team development Jack Easterby, a former member of the Patriots, attended the team's Super Bowl ring presentation party last week. He operates as New England's de facto GM and is the top front-office aid to Bill Belichick in player personnel matters.

Patriots really had no say in preventing the Texans from conducting in an interview with Caserio as National Football League teams have no path to block an office executive from a promotion in the offseason.

With the tampering charges likely not sticking unless solid concrete evidence is presented, the charges could be used as a negotiating tactic to not lose Caserio for nothing and earn some draft picks in the process.
