Texans agree to deal with CB Joseph

The Texans have agreed to terms with CB Johnathan Joseph, according to a league source.

Joseph has spent his entire five-year career with the Bengals, who selected him with the 24th overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.

Joseph appeared in 12 games (all starts) last season, finishing with 42 tackles and three interceptions. His best season came in 2009, when he had six picks, 20 passes defended and 69 tackles.

The signing presumably signals the end of any pursuit of CB Nnamdi Asomugha, considered to be the best free agent on the market. Houston previously was believed to be a front-runner for the four-time All-Pro’s services.
