This offseason, we were wondering whether the Cleveland Browns would retain defensive quality control coach Daron Roberts, who served under Ray Horton's staff. He was seen as one of the brighter young minds in the NFL. When the Browns announced that Tony Tuioti was coming aboard as the new defensive quality control coach, though, the writing was on the wall that Roberts was no longer part of the Browns' staff.
Reports have come out that Roberts has been hired by the Houston Texans as a scout:

#Texans new pro scout Daron Roberts is a young star in the biz. Might be the smartest football guy in the NFL. Could be a GM soon— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) February 10, 2014
We'll see just how quickly Roberts' rise to stardom takes place, but it doesn't look like it will be in Cleveland.
