The Texans’ cornerback continues to deny the ravages of age.

One of the more recently maligned posts in BRB history is Weston’s premature funeral for Johnathan Joseph in September of 2015. J-Jo was coming off two, maybe three depending how you felt about his performance against the Buccaneers, games in which he didn’t look much like the best free agent signing the Texans ever had.

Joseph righted the ship, however, and has continued to play quite well despite the fact that he’s now 33 years old. You might believe his advanced age (by cornerback standards) would open him up to getting beat deep. PFF says, at least last year, that would be an extremely flawed way of thinking.

With A.J. Bouye’s decision to leave Houston for Jacksonville, the Texans are going to need J-Jo to remain a steady and productive presence in 2017. Father Time remains undefeated, but Johnathan Joseph hasn’t lost yet.
