According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has informed the team that he wants to play somewhere else and asked to be traded. Johnson forfeited $1 million by not showing up for offseason training activities and is due to make $10 million this year. So much for his subtle approach of staying away from OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Johnson now presses the Texans into action to either trade him or find a way to turn his frown upside down. It would be extremely difficult to trade him at that price and ay team would likely have to work out a new contract. Reports indicate there are four teams are interested in making a move for the veteran pass catcher. Details of divide between Andre Johnson & #Texans is posting on @NFL.com. He told them he wants to play for another team. Houston resisting — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 10, 2014

  • I would ignore Andre's trade request. He is under contract and has already hurt the team by not participating in the OTA's and mini-camp, especially with a new coach and new offensve system. If he doesn't show up for Day 1 of training camp, O'Brien should have a press conference and say, "We congratulate Andre Johnson on his retirement from football! He is under contract and will not be traded. We appreciate what he has meant to the Texans during his tenure here." And that would be the end of that. Then, when he returns to the team I hope fans boo him like he deserves.
