Sources: Pats drop grievance as Texans move on

The Houston Texans will no longer pursue New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio for their general manager position, the team announced Friday.

News that the Texans are no longer pursuing Nick Caserio for their general manager opening is significant for the Patriots, as Caserio returns to his position as Bill Belichick's right-hand man. Caserio's role is unique because he contributes to both the personnel and coaching side, with Belichick once saying he can't imagine there is another person in the NFL who fills such a "rare" role. Furthermore, the prospect of replacing Caserio at this time on the NFL calendar -- when most coaches are on vacation -- wouldn't have been ideal for New England.

Source: Pats' Michel sidelined after knee scope

While the Patriots aren't holding a final practice today, many players still arrived for workouts at the stadium, where the power has been out. On Monday, players enjoyed an unexpected audible from Bill Belichick, with paintball subbed in for practice.

With the Vikings agreeing to a four-year extension with TE Kyle Rudolph, it takes a potential trade option off the table for the Patriots. New England is thin at tight end in the current post-Gronk snapshot, with Benjamin Watson set to miss the first four games of the season due to NFL suspension. That leaves Matt LaCosse, Stephen Anderson and Ryan Izzo atop the depth chart.
