RTC: Watt is young, but a veteran leader

Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans ...

J.J. Watt joked Sunday that he feels like an old man now, with the younger players asking him for advice. The 25-year-old defensive end has become a veteran leader on the Texans defensive line, writes Adam Wexler of CSNHouston.com. His 48 games played are more than all but one of his defensive line teammates.

The Texans' secondary hasn't been talked about much yet this offseason, but they have one of the most dependable players on the field, writes John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. That would be cornerback Johnathan Joseph. Joseph is working through a plan that will eventually get him back to 100 percent participation, but he says he's feeling fine.

David Quessenberry took part in a relay for life event Saturday, writes Mark Berman of Fox 26. The Texans' offensive line has supported him throughout and they said they will dedicate the season to Quessenberry, who is undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkin T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. "We're constantly in contact with him just to tell him how much he's in our hearts and our minds," left tackle Duane Brown said. "It just puts things in perspective. We're out here battling. He's in the ultimate battle right now."
