Dude, turn it to ESPN. These dude are in slumber since Aso isn't going to NYJ. Wow!!!
What I hated was how when we went with Joseph, NFL Network and ESPN talked more about how NYJ were the front runners etc... instead of talking about how Joseph helps our team like they were doing for everyone else's transactions.

Agreed! So glad we chose the path we did, what a strange strange disaster. I like how the Jets restructured everybody and their brother to afford him, meaning now all their cap is 11.5 million below the cap....there's no turning that back in.

The Jets board is hilarious! Suck it Jets! All that trash talking and arrogance and now it blows up in their faces. In a way I thank Nnamdi for making the work week short and exciting. It was crazy while it lasted and I think the Texans came out fine. It would've been awesome if we got him, but we filled two major holes with a couple of very good players. Now the Jets have to go back to Cromartie and possibly even Braylon Edwards and overpay to keep those guys.

Wow, just saw he went to Philly. Great news, IMO. Doesn't go to the Jets and he's out of the AFC.

I just wonder at what point that talks broke down .... I doubt now , looking at 5 years $60m that is was just about the total amount but the fact that the Texans could strike a lesser deal with JJ and add Manning in the process.

They are actually mad because Nnamdi's deal suggests that he thought the Eagles were the better team...and he would be right.

The Eagles have weapons on defense AND offense...and they have a pretty good QB.

It will be hilarious if they can't re-sign Cromartie. That dude will want money and maybe he's a little angry they passed him over at first and he's their backup plan.

This makes the Iggles really solid on the back end ..... The only time this would affect the Texans is should they meet in the Superbowl.


Probably the best outcome outside of him landing in Houston as far as the Texans are concerned.

No doubt. That team is going to be hell to face. With Vick getting his mojo back it's tough to gameplan against them. And now you can forget about throwing the football against that super aggressive defense that the Eagles run. Goodluck to the rest of the teams in the NFC East. Tony Romo must have a very bad taste in his mouth...

Texans agreed to terms with CB Johnathan Joseph on a five-year, $48.75 million contract, including a $12.5 million signing bonus.
Joseph cashes in with $23.5 million guaranteed. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets are now in the driver's seat for Nnamdi Asomugha. The Texans doggedly pursued both of the market's top cornerbacks, and did well to win one of the sweepstakes to shore up what was arguably the league's worst secondary in 2010. Joseph is still in his prime at age 27, has flashed shut-down potential in Cincinnati and has ball skills at least on par with Asomugha's. Coordinator Wade Phillips has turned defenses around quickly in the past, and he just landed a key piece to make it happen in Houston.
ESPN:

Quote:
The Texans got their second secondary addition in two days, adding Chicago free-agent safety Danieal Manning with a four-year, $20 million deal that includes $9 million guaranteed, according to Mark Berman.

With corner Johnathan Joseph and Manning now part of a secondary that allowed 267.5 passing yards a game in 2010, things should settle down substantially on the back end in a new 3-4 scheme.

Lance Zierlein says Asante is gone with this signing. Dunno the Eagles situation but that's a lot of money to invest in the CB position.
