Andre Johnson Questions If Houston Is The Place For Him
Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans are probably still looking for their franchise quarterback. Their franchise WR might be looking for a new franchise.
Andre Johnson told CSN Houston on Tuesday that he isn’t sure of his future with the Texans.
“You just kind of, you know, look at things. I’ve been thinking about things this off season,” Johnson said. “I just kinda wonder is, sometimes, is this still the place for me?”
“It’s just something I’m just thinking about. And you know, I haven’t went to anybody about a contract, you know. I haven’t came out and asked for a trade or anything like that. But it’s just something that I’m just thinking about right now.”
Johnson is the most notable veteran that wasn’t at voluntary minicamps this past week. There might be a little frustration with the Texans seemingly going through another rebuild, frustration might be setting in for the 11 year veteran.
“I just look over my career,” Johnson said. “I just kind of wonder, you know, is it the place. I’ve only been to the playoffs twice. I think we’ve only had three winning seasons.”
“I don’t play to lose. I don’t think anyone in this league does, that is probably my frustration.”
The Texans brought in Bill O’Brien to take over for Gary Kubiak after they finished 2-14 in 2013. O’Brien is Johnson’s and the Texans’ third head coach.
“You bring a new coach in you go through a rebuilding process,” Johnson said of Bill O’Brien. “Some people say it’s not rebuilding. Some people say it’s a quick fix…everybody has their own opinion.”
“Right now I’m just taking some time, thinking about some things. When i make my decision I’ll make my decision and go from there.”
Whether that decision is to continue on with the Texans and their new regime or move on to another stop in his NFL career, only time will tell.
