I would be. They made a run and still got a top CB but something about Joseph worries me vs just plugging Aso in and getting the publicity. I think Aso brings and edge that makes a D more cocky/confident

Depends, if Aso told the Texans he wasn't signing here then Joseph is a fantastic alternative.

If he wouldve signed if given more time then that's a different story.

I don't think it is they didn't want to wait, I think the writing was on the wall.

Let's say Nnamdi's agent said they wanted $13 mil/year & the Texans said OK... then Nnamdi & his agent started crawfish'n....

& we wait.... & we wait..... & we wait..... using the Texans to get the Jet's to up the ante...

I'm glad, I'm ecstatic... Jonathan Joseph isn't Nnamdi, but he's one of the top 5 corners in this league & that's worlds better than where we were.

I am thinking it came down to Aso taking too much time and with players flying off the board. I feel the Texans got to the point of they had to quit playing the numbers game and get an actual number so they know what they can do about signing other players.

Lets get a safety now.

How much time do you think he needs?

3 months? 6?

He's been thinking about this since January. Have you seen the YouTube

Earlier today there was a tweet about 49ers working on Joseph. I think Texans saw scenario where they get no one but Cormartie maybe. I like Joseph. My issue/disappointment for people would be the "confidence" factor that I thought Aso would bring to any team.

A friend of mine is telling me that Joseph is 80% the player at 50% the cost. I hope he's right.

I'm still pissed though. I hate the effing Jets.

With the JJ signing, the Jets can get Aso for a smaller number.

We paid gave him a four-year, $23 million deal and got about 1/2 that out of him due to injuries.

Hope I'm wrong, but I'll save this post just in case

Perhaps.

Maybe Aso was leary about being a one-man show in the Houston Defensive backfield and we did this to sweeten the pot. Can we afford the both of them?
