Houston Texans make shocking, necessary front office decision

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Texans and executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby are parting ways.

We've heard rumors this season that Easterby's relationship with the McNair family isn't what it used to be and that his time could soon be up in Houston. The timing of this decision is interesting, though, coming on Monday morning right after the bye week, and the Texans first win of the season. Clearly this wasn't a Friday news dump, the Texans wanted this out there.

Easterby spent three years in Houston becoming infamous for being Bill O'Brien's right-hand man that destroyed the Texans roster and salary cap. The Laremy Tunsil trade, giving Deshaun Watson a massive contract with a no-trade clause, getting fleeced in the DeAndre Hopkins trade are just a few of the franchise killing moves he and Bill O'Brien signed off on. The Texans are still dealing with a massive amount of dead money, even after Nick Caserio's best efforts to clean up the cap and culture in Houston.

Hopefully, the Texans can put this mess behind them and move forward with Nick Caserio and Lovie Smith continuing to turnaround the organization, put a better product on the field, and leave behind the drama.
