Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson doesn’t seem too thrilled to be a Texan right now. After the Texans finished 2-14 last season, the last thing Johnson wants to do is be part of another rebuild of his team. Johnson spoke to the media after donating $30,000 through his foundation to the Houston Area Women’s Center where Johnson openly questioned if he still wants to be a Texan.
“Nobody’s been here as long as I have. You just kind of look at things; I’ve been thinking about things this offseason,” Johnson said. “And I just kind of wonder sometimes, ‘Is this still the place for me?’”
“When you bring a new coach in, you go through a rebuilding process,” Johnson said. “Some people say it’s not. Some people say it’s a quick fix. Everybody has their own opinion. But I’ve been through the situation more than once.”
“I just look at my career. … I’ve only been to the playoffs twice. I think we’ve only had three winning seasons,” said Johnson, who at least twice last season expressed his frustration on the field during games. “I don’t think any player wants to experience that. I think over time it can become very frustrating. And this offseason has been very frustrating for me; beginning of the offseason, I should say. That’s just kind of where I’m at right now.”
I think Johnson can sense that at the age of 32, his chances of winning a championship is beginning to fade. He still has 3 years left on his contract and has a pretty big cap number so I wouldn’t be shocked it the Texans move him.
