The Patriots lost director of player personnel Nick Caserio last week when he left to become the next general manager of the Houston Texans. Losing Ziegler, the Patriots' assistant director of player personnel, would have been another tough blow to the team's front office.

It's possible Ziegler could replace Caserio. The MMQB's Albert Breer laid out the situation on Twitter:

The Patriots have begun a pivotal offseason for the future of the franchise. The team has many different roster weaknesses to address, and having an experienced front office with people like Ziegler would only help the Patriots in their quest to reconstruct a championship-caliber squad.
