Andre Johnson is unhappy with the Texans, but he isn’t going anywhere, asserts John McClain of the Houston Chronicle (on Twitter). Some have wondered if Johnson will get traded or might even retire, but McClain is confident that they’ll get things hammered out with the wide receiver like they always do. Johnson recently opened up to reporters about his frustrations and openly wondered about his future, but his sizable contract makes a trade rather difficult. Here’s more from the AFC South..
- Titans GM Ruston Webster said today (via Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com on Twitter) that he expected to get more calls about trading his No. 11 pick. He also added that he didn’t get an offer from the trade-happy Browns for the selection.
- Texans head coach Bill O’Brien has already spoken to Johnson, tweets Ed Werder of ESPN.com. O’Brien says that he thinks highly of Johnson and believes that he’s a great fit for the offense.
- Maggie Hendricks of USA Today doesn’t fault Johnson for being unhappy with the Texans. Johnson, she points out, has been the teams top receiver for the last eleven years, with the exception of his injury-shortened 2011. Despite his individual performance, Johnson has yet to get near a Super Bowl ring.
