The Houston Texans have dropped their pursuit of Nick Caserio for their general manager vacancy. 

As a result, the New England Patriots will no longer pursue tampering charges against the Texans.

The Texans could enter the 2019 season without a general manager, splitting up duties between Bill O'Brien, Jack Easterby and the scouting department.

The Texans fired Brian Gaine as general manager this month.
