Cornerback Johnathan Joseph left the Cincinnati Bengals last season after five seasons with the team and signed a five-year, $48.75 million contract that included $23.5 million in guaranteed money with the Houston Texans. In his first season in Houston, Joseph had four interceptions, earned Pro Bowl honors for the first time, and made note of several differences between the two organizations.
Johnathan Joseph left Cincinnati to sign a five-year, $48.75 million contract in Houston last year, so it’s not surprising that Joseph views the Texans as a more generous team than the Bengals. But Joseph says that goes beyond players’ salaries.
A day after Houston Texans’ star quarterback, Matt Schaub, said he is not worried about the deal extension matter, a startling disclosure awaits him: Texans will not consider agreeing to fresh terms with him until the end of the 2012 National Football League (NFL) season.
