He held scouting and personnel positions with the Bills, Cowboys, Jets and Dolphins and, most recently, served as the Bills' vice president of player personnel in 2017 after being hired away from the Texans in May of previous year.

It is not known when the deal with Gaine will be made official by the Texans, but speculation is it will be before the Senior Bowl which the Texans are helping coach in two weeks.

The Texans are negotiating a contract to hire Brian Gaine as their new General Manager, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

It's uncertain how long Smith will be away from the team, but one of his former right-hand men will now be in charge.

Houston's last general manager, Rick Smith, took an extended leave of absence from the team to help take care of his wife who has breast cancer. This week's Texans interview will finally produce a GM opportunity for Gaine.

Before coming to Houston, Gaine, worked in scouting/personnel with the New York Jets (1999-2004), Dallas Cowboys (2005-07) and Miami Dolphins (2008-13). Gaine worked on four drafts and free-agent periods for the Texans before he left for Buffalo in May of a year ago.

Gaine is a Bill Parcells protégé who worked with the Hall of Fame coach/general manager with the Jets, Cowboys and Dolphins. The Texans were on pace to either win their third straight AFC South title or qualify for the playoffs as a wild-card team prior to Watson's injury, so Gaine will have an intriguing opportunity to take over a possible ready-made contender.
