Report: A Football Team Is Actually Going To Hire Charley Casserly Again

The holidays truly are a time for miracles.

Charley Casserly, the Houston Texans' general manager from the formation of the franchise until his "resignation" in May of 2006, is apparently on the verge of getting hired to work by another NFL team.

I repeat: In December of 2014, there exists an owner in the NFL who is going to pay Charley Casserly for his opinion on football-related matters.

Per Adam Schefter's Facebook:

Jets owner Woody Johnson is preparing to hire former Texans and Redskins GM Charley Casserly as a consultant in the event the organization decides to make any changes, per league sources.

The jobs of Jets head coach Rex Ryan and John Idzik both are very much in jeopardy and, should the Jets make any changes, Johnson would be ready to move forward with the football expertise and manpower he would need surrounding him.

Texans fans may appreciate the wholly absurd congruity of Charley Casserly serving as a consultant, presumably brought in to advise an owner on the futures of the current general manager and head coach, considering Bob McNair once hired Dan Reeves to do the exact same thing to Casserly.

Is it possible for things to actually get worse for the Jets?
