James Casey, #86 Two Houston Texans made the 2012 USA Today’s All Joe Team and they were fullback James Casey and special teams star Bryan Braman. Both players were key parts of the 2012 team and were put on this recognized post season team released by USA Today. The criteria of the team is as follows: About the team: The All-Joe team was created in 1992 by longtime USA TODAY Sports NFL writer Larry Weisman as a tribute to Joe Phillips, a 14-year defensive lineman who did yeoman’s work for the Kansas City Chiefs that season. His effort in the trenches didn’t lead to much glory … unless you point to the 29 combined sacks of Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith, Kansas City’s fifth-ranked defense or the team’s wild-card run. USA TODAY Sports has honored the unsung Joes ever since and compiles them in a 53-man roster that has at least one representative from every NFL team. Only players who have never been named to the Pro Bowl are eligible.   You can see the complete team here.
