Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson wants out — at least that’s what he’s saying. Johnson doesn’t plan to attend any of the team’s offseason activities and made some comments to the Houston Chronicle that should concern Texans fans. “I just look at my career…I’ve only been to the playoffs twice. I think we’ve only had three winning seasons. I don’t think any player wants to experience that. I think over time it can become very frustrating.” He further added, “I’m just taking some time, thinking about some things. You know, when I make my decision, I’ll make my decision and go from there.” So Johnson wants out and seemingly wants to go to a team that can make the playoffs. Cam Newton could use a true number one target and the Carolina Panthers made the playoffs last year. Could they be a fit? In a word: no. The Panthers have about $3 million in cap space to work with and Johnson has about a $12 million cap hit this year. The numbers just don’t work out. The only way a deal like this could work would be if Carolina traded a player with a similar salary back to Houston. A player that comes to mind is Charles Johnson, though considering the Texans already have JJ Watt and just drafted Jadeveon Clowney, it seems unlikely that they’d want him. And with Greg Hardy now in legal trouble, it’s unclear if Dave Gettleman would be willing to give up Johnson. It’s an interesting thought though and something the Panthers should think about. Do you think they should? Vote below // Should the Panthers consider trading Charles Johnson to the Texans for Andre Johnson?
