Report: Texans still in Asomugha mix

By Paul Kuharsky

A share of Texans fans are antsy. They’ve seen the Titans and Jaguars address big needs with Matt Hasselbeck and Paul Posluszny, respectively.

And all Texans fans have gotten are three re-signed guys: a receiver, a backup tackle and a reserve quarterback.

But John McClain reports the Texans are still in the mix for the biggest prize of the free-agent class. Nnamdi Asomugha could do a lot to fix an awful pass defense.

McClain cites two sources who claim the Texans remain in the mix despite reports that suggest it’s going to come down to San Francisco and the New York Jets. The price to beat out those teams will be monumental.

He also said the team is talking to Johnathan Joseph, the top alternative to Asomugha.

Texans fans should relax. Once Asomugha decides on his destination, several secondary pieces should fall into place around the league. If Houston is not a landing spot for one or two of them, then it’s time to get worked up.
