Texans made no monetary promises to Andre Johnson

Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson reported to the Houston Texans training camp today, even though he has made it excruciatingly clear that he was unhappy with the organization over the last several months.

The Texans also made it abundantly clear that they would not be paying Johnson anymore, nor would they consider trading him. With the sides at odds, many expected that Johnson may in fact hold out of training camp.

Instead, Johnson showed up like a true professional would, ready to work and help improve his team. Apparently, Johnson spoke with multiple members of the Texans’ organization, who aided in his return to the team.

Although he met with the team’s ownership, they never made Johnson any monetary promises in order to keep his services through the 2014 season.

Johnson essentially returned on his own volition, but with the aid of head coach Bill O’Brien and the Texans ownership.

At the end of the day, Johnson knows that he had no other options but to rejoin the Texans team. His best bet is to perform to the best of his abilities this season, and potentially find his way onto a new squad by the start of the 2015 season.
