New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio was set to be atop any catalog of hot general manager candidates this offseason.
You can scratch that name off the list.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Patriots and Caserio have reached an agreement on a contract extension through 2020, a source informed of the situation said. He won't interview for GM openings this year.
ESPN first reported the news.
Keeping Caserio through the end of the decade ensures that Bill Belichick will hold on to one of his talented evaluators after seeing several departures of front office personnel recently.
