Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph recently sat down with Barry Byers of The Herald and told him how different things are with the Texans then they were with the Bengals.
“The first thing about Houston is it’s an organization run from a different perspective,” Joseph told Barry Byers of The Herald in a Sunday Q&A. “In Cincy, the team lives off money it earns from football. Houston’s owner has other business interests and he controls the money.”
Joseph made it clear that the Texans do things in a “first-class way.”
“Numerous things that go on such as the way Houston interacts with my family; we’re treated in a first-class way,” Joseph said. “They helped us when my wife lost our baby daughter in a miscarriage. But they help with anything you ask of them because they are a very caring organization with positive attitudes about its players. In Cincy, we’re told how much Gatorade we could take home. In Houston, we get what we request. You get soap and deodorant at your request. You don’t have a roommate on road trips.”
Fans don’t realize it, but every team in the NFL runs things differently. Some are willing to spend money and take care of their players, which really should be an asset to them, while other teams treat their players like they’re in high school.
