Andre Johnson has spent the last eleven years in Houston, functioning as the Texans’ de facto No. 1 receiver.
If he has his way, though, there won’t be a twelfth.
With days remaining until training camp begins, reports surfaced that Johnson has grown disgruntled with the Texans, informing them “he wants to play for another team.”
According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, Johnson’s beef revolves around his $1 million workout bonus, which is earned by completing a set number of offseason workout sessions. Johnson missed a few and wanted to make up for it — and collect his money — by working out extra. He was denied his request.
“That furthered the divide between Johnson and the Texans, driving a wedge between the parties,” Rapoport reported.
At last check, Johnson, due $6.4 million in 2014, is said to not be available for trade. However, there’s been plenty of apparent interest in the 33-year-old, with at least four teams reportedly stepping forward to kick the Texans’ tires.
The identities of those teams are not known. But fear not, beloved readers, I’ve put my thinking cap on to narrow down Johnson’s potential destination.
