Houston Texans Fans Should Thank Fred Bennett For Johnathan Joseph?

I know, I know. That is a bit of an odd headline, but, according to this soundbyte from Lance Zierlein's blog, there is a some truth in that statement. 

As we all know, Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson had been mentioned in a bit of recruiting news this off-season talking about his quick attempts to mention the Texans when talking to new Philadelphia Eagle Nnamdi Asomugha. Johnson apparently did the same to his new teammate Johnathan Joseph...at Fred Bennett's wedding during the off-season. 

Bennett's connection to both? He was a teammate of Joseph's at South Carolina and Cincinnati and played in Houston with Johnson in between those times. Those connections earned the invites where Johnson says they had a very good conversation for a couple of hours about Joseph joining the Texans. 

Did that information get back to Rick Smith and the management? Johnson wasn't too forthcoming on the details, but the end result is the same. Houston has its number one cornerback, both Johnson and Joseph should benefit from practicing daily against each other, and Fred "Ballhawk Gamecock" Bennett may have just been the guy to put everyone together.
