Johnathan Joseph reveals why he signed with Titans
Johnathan Joseph decided to sign with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday and his reasoning is pretty sound. Just a day after inking a deal with the Titans, Joseph revealed why he chose to sign with Tennessee.
For starters, Joseph already has some familiarity with Tennessee’s new defensive backs coach, Anthony Midget. Midget served as the Houston Texans secondary coach in 2018 and 2019. Therefore, he was interested in reuniting with him by joining the Titans.
Following his departure from the Texans, Joseph wanted to join a team that could contend for a Super Bowl next season. After mulling his options, the veteran cornerback was fond of what the Titans achieved a year ago. He mentioned Tennessee’s appearance in the AFC Championship game made his decision easier.
Lastly, Joseph wanted to join the Titans due to making it easier for him to watch his son play football. His son currently plays high school football in North Carolina, making a trip from Tennessee a bit easier than Houston.
With Joseph joining Tennessee’s defense, he figures to have a role alongside Adoree Jackson and Malcolm Butler. Not to mention, rookie Kristian Fulton will likely see some snaps as well after being taken with the No. 61 pick by the Titans in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Just this past season, Joseph was able to contribute 51 tackles, 13 pass breakups, and an interception. As Joseph nears the end of his career, he’s interested in finding a team that can win games. Above all, he wanted a team that was located near where his son plays football.
