In 2018 the Texans cornerback group was a unicorn blood sipping and occasionally injured Johnathan Joseph, a look at the left hand here's the right Shareece Wright, a concussed Kevin Johnson who was knocked out early in the season, a bum ankle Aaron Colvin, Kareem Jacksonville after relocating from his safety spot, and players like Mike Tyson. The worst part of Houston’s team were their cornerbacks, a group masked by J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney and the quarterbacks they faced.

This year’s free agency cornerback group was whatever but Houston had to do something. They made the second real cornerback signing of the offseason by snagging Bradley Roby for one-year $10 million. It's the perfect contract. It's the exact type of move Houston needed to make. After watching the rest of the league pay ridiculous prices for safeties, the Texans sat back and filled a need.

With Colvin possibly healthy in 2019, Joseph maybe being competent again, Roby, a possible first round cornerback selection, and a good safety group, Houston may actually be able to cover someone in 2019.
