Kareem Jackson and Johnathan Joseph were the starting corners all season, and they played alright at times, with each recording 58 tackles. Unfortunately though, they didn’t do much more than tackle players.
Jackson wound up with two picks, but given his hefty contract it would have been nice to see more. Still, the highly touted corner has averaged just two interceptions a season for his whole career, so he really just stayed the course here.
Joseph had one interception, his lowest total in a season since 2008. It may be time to see what first round pick Kevin Johnson can do as a full-time starter for the Texans. He did well in his role as a nickel corner, but seems like he can benefit from a move to covering guys on the outside.
The safeties were good, even if the starters were unexpected. After free agent pick up Rahim Moore found himself in the dog house, converted corner Andre Hal and Quintin Demps started the majority of the time.
Hal led the team with four interceptions and Demps added one more. The team has some youth in the secondary with Hal and Johnson, and things look like they will continue to improve for the Texans
