    They dont have too, but they will unless they get the draft pick they want for Caserio.

    That's not set in stones either. His contract is up after the season is done correct.

    When has McClain ever mentioned that he has sources inside the Texans?

    His reports actually seem to come from directly covering the team and what they say publicly or release rather than anonymous sources.

    McClain also gets scooped on every big story. Where was he when Gaine was fired? He hears what the Texans want him to hear.

    So what are his sources that support your imaginings? He has no sources other than public info? That doesn't support your suppositions much

    Which has nothing to do with Caserio and/or Gaine

    He reports directly what the team says. Like when the team withdrew from caserio, he reported that. When O'Brien said he wanted osweiler and worked with Rick, he reported that.

    With Barzinga taking over the scouting and Easterby doing the other football ops, same thing

    I don't think they overlooked it as much as they didn't think it would be an issue. Don't forget the Pats already let him interview for a GM once with Miami and there was no reason to think they wouldn't again. I think its just this year they have lost so many, gotten so much bad press and BB is several years older and Brady closer to retirement that they didn't think they could afford to lose him right now.

    Also he has an agent, wouldn't it be his agent's job to know what's in the contract just as much as Caserio? Hell you can make an argument that its even more his job because that's what he's hired for. When I take my car to the mechanic I don't think its my job to understand why my car isn't working that's what I'm paying the mechanic for. Likewise I work in IT, I don't try to explain to someone why their computer isn't working, unless they ask, I just fix it and tell them what they can do to avoid the problem in the future.

    They will let Caserio walk. They just want a 1st rd pick to let him walk and the Texans would rather go a full season/draft/FA period than pay the price to get their guy.

    The agent should'v known, if the Texans org/Caserio even bothered to ask him look at the contract. What a clusterfvck of an org.

    Honest question: is Caserio's contract with the Pats a matter of public record?

    I'm trying to understand how the Texans were supposed to know about this clause before asking for permission to interview.

    Simply by calling the agent, telling him you're thinking about hiring him and asking the agent if Caserio can get out of his current contract. The agent should know the contracts contents.

    How is that not considered tampering?
