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.
BEST OF MAXIM
ON THE CHEAP?
Former Bengals cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who now plays for the Texans, said his former team put limits on "how much Gatorade we could take home."
As NFL teams prepare for the start of the season they already have their eye on who could become available during the free agency period of 2013.

Our series of Cincinnati Bengals training camp previews starts with a look at the offensive backfield;
At this time last year, Andy Dalton was an unknown commodity, Carson Palmer was insisting he was home in California for good and Cedric Benson was a free agent awaiting the end of the NFL lockout and a call to go work for some team.
A lot has changed totally. Some things have changed...

DON'T BE A FOOL
The Vikings brought a former strip club owner in to speak to the team and warn them about all the pitfalls they should avoid.
HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub isn't quite ready to talk football.
Schaub and his wife, Laurie, presented a 200,000 check to the Texas Children's Hospital on Monday, a donation through the couple's Gr8 Hope Foundation. Schaub wears No. 8. Last year, the couple raised 108,000 for a playroom at the hospital's campus west of Houston and this...
The Texans broke out in 2011, won the AFC South with 10 wins, and made the playoffs for the 1st time in their franchise’s still short history. What’s even more impressive is the fact that they did this despite their quarterback and their #1 (and only good) wide receiver only playing in the same game together 4 times, thanks to injuries. When Matt Schaub went down, this...
In Texans 101’s continued preview of training camp position battles, we move to running back, which proved to be a strength for the Houston Texans in 2011. Like the quarterbacks analyzed Wednesday, there isn’t much left to the imagination when it comes to the depth and playing time at running back. Arian Foster is the [...]
