Vance Joseph: Quintin Demps “a young player with a huge upside”

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 5, 2012 – 2:42 pm

After the Texans re-signed safety Quintin Demps on Thursday, Texans defensive backs coach Vance Joseph discussed the move with HoustonTexans.com:

Your thoughts on getting Quintin back in the mix?
“Very excited. Demps is a young player with a huge upside. He played for us half the season, had great production on third downs. He’s tough. He’s smart. He’s our kind of guy.”

Can you explain what exactly his role was last year as the fourth safety?
“Actually, when we signed him back, he was actually the third safety starting on third downs. When D-Man (Danieal Manning) got hurt for a month, he played the third down safety for a month. He had five PBUs, two interceptions, a couple tackles, so he did a good job for us.”

What did you think about the way he responded after getting cut in the preseason, to come back at midseason and have two interceptions in three weeks?
“He had a great preseason for us last year. He had a couple snafus in dime coverage and Dom Barber was paying really well in our camp, so he didn’t make our team, but bringing him back, he came back with a great attitude. Great energy. It was great timing to bring him back because he worked so hard in practice, so it was good for both parties.”

How excited are you to get to work with him for a full offseason this year?
“That’s a great question, because most of his flaws came through not knowing the system, and we all had problems with that being a new system. But having an offseason, having OTAs, he’s going to be a much better player for us.”
