The Houston Texans are expanding their search of general manager candidates to personnel already employed with other NFL clubs.

According to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, the Texans are looking to interview Baltimore Ravens director of football research Scott Cohen for their general manager job.

Cohen is part of the Ravens’ self-scouting process along with research on opponents. Cohen also analyzed the latest NFL trends, which means he could be more of an analytics guy when it comes to team construction. A big part of his work is also draft preparation and free agency preparation, which is what the Texans could use given they don’t have the salary cap space of previous years and will be without their first two draft picks in 2021.

Before coming to the Ravens in 2015 as a coaching consultant, Cohen was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a senior personnel advisor (2013-14), the New York Jets as their assistant general manager (2008-12), the Philadelphia Eagles as director of pro personnel (2001-07), and the Jacksonville Jaguars as assistant director of pro scouting (1999-2000).
