NFL Rumors: Four Teams Interested In Trading For Texans’ Andre Johnson


Andre Johnson has been the one constant of the Houston Texans over the past decade. He has been with the team through its good and bad years, but his time with the team may be coming to an end.

According to’s Ian Rapaport, Johnson has asked the Texans to trade him and four teams have already expressed interest in the veteran:

Johnson is wary of the team going through a rebuilding phase, and at this point in his career he would prefer to be on a team with championship aspirations.

Even still, he had agreed to come in for off-season workouts after talking to head coach Bill O’Brien. Johnson was due a $1 million bonus if he attended all off-season workouts, but missed some of the early sessions. Johnson asked to still receive his bonus by doing extra workouts, but the team refused, which furthered the gap between the two sides.

According to Rapaport, Johnson feels that he has done a lot for the team in the past, and would like some goodwill in return:

The NFL is a business, but it is about loyalty. Teams want their players to be loyal and players want the same. When that trust is burned, issues arise.

There is still no word on what teams have expressed interest in Johnson, but if he is moved, a motivated Andre Johnson could spell trouble for the rest of the league.
