    Andre Johnson reportedly no longer wants to be a Texan

    The greatest player in franchise history, wide receiver Andre Johnson has spent his entire career in Houston. Take a look back at the first 11 seasons of his career.Miami's Andre Johnson, right, celebrates with his mother, Karen Johnson, as he is selected by the Houston Texans with the third overall pick in the NFL draft Saturday, April 26, 2003, in Miami. Johnson watched the selection process with family and friends at the Mayfair Hotel in Miami.

    Andre Johnson has informed the Texans he wants to play for another team in 2014, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

    According to the report, four teams have shown interest in trading for Johnson, who is the Texans’ all-time receiving leader in receptions, yards and touchdowns.

    Johnson did not attend the team’s offseason workouts, losing a $1 million roster bonus as a result of his absence. He is reportedly seeking to regain the bonus before he agrees to rejoin the Texans.

    Johnson said in May he planned to miss organized team activities and a mandatory minicamp, holding out while he evaluated his future with a rebuilding franchise.

    While Johnson has been in a public stalemate with the Texans for nearly two months, Thursday’s story is the first time Johnson has reportedly requested an official separation from the only team he’s ever played for.

    Johnson told NFL.com Wednesday that he’s unsure whether he’ll be in uniform when the team hosts the Washington Redskins on Sept. 7 in a Week 1 matchup at NRG Stadium.

    “I don’t know,” Johnson said, while appearing at a Nike event in Oregon. “I can’t answer that question.”

    Johnson, 32, is set to be the Texans’ highest-paid player this season, making a base salary of $10 million with a salary cap figure of $15.6 million.

    The seven-time Pro Bowler can be fined $30,000 for each day he misses training camp, which begins in late July.

    I'm sure that one thought is creeping into a lot of heads right now, with Bill O'Brien as head coach in Houston.

    Mallett, Amendola, and a 3rd?
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Great idea from his POV.

    - 2009



    This guy tends to get forgotten about at times since the generally poor quarterback play of that team since he got there. Can you imagine how great he could have been if he ever would have played with a real QB?

    According to media guys down here, sorry no links, the Texans can't afford the hit it would cost to trade him. This may be his last year here since he is owed so much next year, so maybe he wants an extension.
