Scott Halleran/Getty ImagesThe Texans have agreed to a two-year extension for cornerback Johnathan Joseph, a source said. Joseph still had one year left on a contract he signed in 2011, and is now under contract through the 2017 season. The deal is worth $22 million with $11.5 million guaranteed.Joseph began his NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals, and signed with the Texans during free agency in 2011. He helped reverse a defense that ranked dead last in pass defense, allowing more passing yards than any other team in 2010. In 2011, after adding Joseph and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, the Texans allowed the third-fewest passing yards in the league."
What We Learned From Houston Texans Mini-Camp – By P.D. Starr of State of the Texans
"With OTAs and Mini-Camp, there has been a solid foundation set for the 2015 season. So what did we learn?– The Texans are practicing faster due to the knowledge of the system on both sides of the ball. The level of competition is clear at the majority of the position groups, which is by Bill O’Brien’s design. The efficiency of the team has been evident because the team looks more comfortable having to not think so much on the field. They are playing football, exactly as O’Brien has envisioned since he took the team over.– The quarterback competition should carry into the start of training camp and possibly in the the first pre-season game. There have been many things contributing to both Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer’s up and down play. With both quarterbacks switching between personnel, their timing is off, causing some bad looks offensively for both quarterbacks. The two have looked solid when they are working with the first offensive group, and have alternated each practice, so each gets equal time with all of the Texans personnel. Even though each had hot and cold days, Mallett and Hoyer are polar opposites in terms of skill sets. The one who ends up being the most consistent will be the signal caller week one."
