Both Johnathan Joseph and Owen Daniels spoke to the Texans media at Andre Johnson‘s charity event today. The two Texans players are in similar situations and realize the possibilities. Both have larger contracts than the Texans would like, and have said they are willing to restructure if asked.
Daniels, 31, is coming off a season-ending leg injury that cost him most of 2013. He is due $4.5 million in base salary, and will count for $6.25 million on the cap. With Garrett Graham potentially on his way back and Ryan Griffin on the roster, the Texans could choose simply to cut Daniels, or ask him to take a paycut.
Here is what Daniels had to say to the media today:
“Yeah, I’m willing to restructure. Honestly, I think I have some more years in the tank and not a lot of tread off my tires last year so I think I have some more in me and hopefully they can be here in Houston.”
Joseph, 29, isn’t 100% recovered from toe surgery this offseason, and is ready restructure his contract if need be.
“Anyway I can help the team, obviously, I’m all for helping the team. It’s for the team, obviously they haven’t approached me but it’s something that we can talk about if they did. But for right now, I haven’t heard anything.”
Joseph is owed $7.5 million and $8.5 million in base salary for 2014 and 2015, respectively. His cap hit will be $11.25 million and $12.25 million during those two seasons.
