The Texans were awful defending the pass last season, so it is no wonder the secondary will have an entirely new look in 2011. We all know about the club's two big-ticket free-agent signings, CB Johnathan Joseph and FS Danieal Manning, both of whom will start immediately. We also have discussed cornerback-turned-strong safety Glover Quin, who has made a very smooth transition during training camp. But word is the Texans' nickel sub package has undergone a transformation. Quin, the team's best cornerback the past two seasons, will serve as the nickel back, with S Troy Nolan coming off the bench to replace Quin at strong safety. Nolan, a part-time player last season who tied for the team lead in interceptions (three), has had a great camp and is always around the football. CB Brice McCain, the team's nickel back the past two seasons, will have to find other ways to get on the field.
