    The only way this constitutes bad news is removing a fall back option......Then again not sure if the Jets even considered Joseph.

    Of the three major CBs that awaited free agency, only one now remains. And yes, it’s the biggest one (and the most expensive) who’s still available.

    But as we wait for the decision by Nnamdi Asomugha, the Texans have taken this time to greatly improve their absolute weakest area -- the secondary.

    The Houston Chronicle’s John McClain is reporting that the Texans have agreed to terms with former Bengals CB Johnathan Joseph. McClain also writes that Houston will have to renegotiate many of its players’ contracts or start waiving them in order to meet the salary cap ceiling.

    All along, the talk has been that the Texans badly needed to upgrade their defensive back corps, and earlier today, we told you that they reportedly had “moved into the lead” in trying acquire free agent superstar Asomugha. But McClain writes that when Joseph was ready to sign with them, the Texans couldn’t afford to wait for Asomugha any longer.

    But as we’ve been saying, a player like Joseph is probably a better value. He’s going to cost much less than Asomugha, and he’s not that far removed from the talent that Asomugha possesses. And while the former Raiders CB is 30 years old, Joseph is only 27.

    Meanwhile, Ike Taylor, the only high-rated CB free agent, has re-signed with the Steelers.

    Which might mean Asomugha is being nudged toward the Jets. If they can figure out a way to afford him.

    meh the longer this goes on the more I think it would be better to re-sign Cro and get Braylon locked up as well.

    Both are good players that want to be here.
