Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has been open about his frustration and pessimism with the franchise that went 2-14 last season and the direction they are headed in.
“This offseason has been very frustrating for me,” Johnson said.
He doesn’t plan on attending any OTAs or mandatory camps and is unsure about his future as a Houston Texan.
Johnson said he doesn’t plan to attend organized team activities and minicamp. He hasn’t requested a trade, but wondered at a charity event on Tuesday, “Is this still the place for me?”
I think Johnson is most frustrated with the Texans failure to address their quarterback crisis in the NFL Draft. They selected linebacker Jadeveon Clowney as the overall first pick in the draft. They were allegedly planning on selecting former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, but Minnesota swooped in and grabbed him before they could. They ended up selecting Tom Savage with the 135th overall pick.
At this point in his career Johnson seems more concerned about winning more than anything else. If the Texans can’t get him to the Super Bowl he will remain unhappy until he gets on a team that can.
