“I think they’ve changed diapers, right?” Vermeil said of what the Texans should do to move forward. “Nowhere in his contract says he is involved in deciding who is the coach or who leads the organization.”
He added: “He was a great NFL footballer and a great kid all along. But I think he just gagged and became a better footballer and leader of the football team and let the organization̵7;s leader lead him. ”
Watson’s growing disappointment was recorded since last year after DeAndre Hopkins was traded for the Arizona Cardinals. Watson offered his information on a potential general manager candidate. But the Texans failed to determine their franchise defenders during the ESPN process, reportedly the Texans did not tell Watson they had hired Nick Caserio as the team’s next GM.
