News: The Texans have likely selected Joseph's replacement after picking cornerback Kevin Johnson in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Joseph has one year remaining on a contract that will pay him just north of $12 million in 2015 -- only J.J. Watt will make more. The Texans, who finished 9-7 last season, are contenders in a weak division, so they are likely to carry Joseph for the season while Johnson learns from both he and Kareem Jackson. He was Houston's leading solo tackler in 2014.
