The Texans will hire Bills vice president of player personnel Brian Gaine to serve as their new general manager, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Smith has taken an extended leave of absence to be with his wife, who has breast cancer. Gaine is familiar with the Texans, having spent three years in the organization from 2014-16.

The Houston Texans are reportedly negotiating a contract extension with head coach Bill O'Brien.

It appears the Texans brass remain confident in O'Brien's ability to coach this team moving forward.

The Pearl River, N.Y., native will not have a first-round pick to work with after Smith shipped it to the Browns for the right to move up and select Deshaun Watson.

The Houston Texans are close to naming Brian Gaine as the team's general manager. Gaine has worked in scouting and personnel since 1999 when he started with the Jets. Prior to that, he was the Texans' VP of player personnel.

One thing that impressed the committee in the interview was how in tune Gaine was to the Texans' philosophy of how to run personnel and football operations and what they want to do to win. At 2 a.m., he accepted an offer to become the Packers' new general manager to replace Ted Thompson and cancelled his interview with the Texans that was scheduled for Sunday. The Cowboys blocked the Texans from interviewing exec Will McClay.
