NFL fans don't exactly know much about Jack Easterby, or how he earned such a prominent position in the Houston Texans' front office so quickly. One thing that seems pretty clear, however, is that Texans fans don't seem to like the guy, or his role within the organization.

So while fans may be pumped about adding Derek Rivers (a nice, under-the-radar signing), they likely won't be too happy to learn about his relationship to Easterby.

Back when both were still with the New England Patriots, Easterby apparently officiated Rivers' wedding, according to ProFootballTalk.

Of course, it's not entirely fair to connect the dots between Easterby and Rivers and assume that's the only reason he's with Houston now. The Texans new GM Nick Caserio was New England's director of player personnel when the Pats drafted Rivers back in 2017. It's very likely he played a big part in bringing Rivers to Houston as well.

Even so, Texans fans who were already uncomfortable with Easterby's role within the organization likely won't be too pleased with this development.
