Despite the poor showing in the 2013 season which was riddled by injuries, the Houston Texans’ future is looking rather bright in 2014 with new head coach Bill O’Brien running the show. However, from recent reports, it seems like veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson doesn’t want to stick around much longer to see what this organization can be in a few years.
Well Ed Werder is reporting that Johnson and O’Brien have recently spoken about the situation, and the new coach believes that Johnson needs to stick around for this team to reach their full potential.
#Texans HC Bill O’Brien has spoken to disgruntled WR Andre Johnson. Respects player, thinks great fit for offense. Texans can be like Chiefs

Now we can assume that the reason Johnson is so disgruntled is that, unlike many, he’s not too pleased with the fact that the team didn’t take one of the top QBs that were available in the NFL Draft this past weekend, rather they chose to beef up the defense a little more with picks like Jadeveon Clowney and Louis Nix.
They did end up taking a quarterback later in the much-traveled Tom Savage, who isn’t a lock to be anything special by any means.
However, as O’Brien told Johnson, the style of offense that will be run in Houston may very well end up benefiting the 12-year star in the long run.
