The main avenues for team building in 2021 are complete. Free agency dried up in March. The NFL Draft is in the rear view mirror, and the rookies are already in the building. Sure, there will be new additions, new releases, and more reshuffling, but the foundations of team building are over and done with.
In case you forgot, here’s what Nick Caserio accomplished in his first wild and busy offseason as the GM of your Houston Texans:
