Four teams interested in trading for Andre Johnson
  • By Ian Rapoport
 

Before OTAs and minicamp, star wide receiver Andre Johnson told the Houston Texans he had heard enough from the new staff and coach Bill O'Brien to make him want to show up and join the team. He told them of his plans to be there for offseason workouts, despite missing the early portion of it. The question revolved around his $1 million bonus for attending workouts.

 

Though Johnson had missed some of the sessions, he wanted to earn his money back by working out extra, allowing him to receive the money.

The Texans told him no, per two sources informed of the situation.

That furthered the divide between Johnson and the Texans, driving a wedge between the parties. That caused Johnson to tell them he wanted to play for another team. He is now working out, "not thinking about the Texans," a source said. The Texans have not yet been willing to trade him.

 

As he has expressed publicly, Johnson believes the team is rebuilding, and he has said he has doubts about if he wants to take part in another similar process, as he has several times in his career.

Johnson has also restructured his contract in each of the past three years at the team's behest, and he wants the same goodwill from the Texans regarding his $1 million roster bonus that he could earn Week 1 if he participates in offseason workouts and fulfills his contract.

The Texans declined to comment on the story, and Johnson's agent Kennard McGuire did not return a call for comment. Johnson told NFL Media on Wednesday that he didn't know if he'll be with the Texans on Week 1. Asked if he'd be at camp, Johnson said "hopefully" but he didn't know for sure.

 

Johnson is set to earn $10 million this year, not including his workout bonus.

The Texans have resisted his request for a trade thus far, though four teams have expressed interest. Meanwhile, one veteran Texans player said while the team wants Johnson to play with them in 2014, they've also told him from a business sense, "Stick to your guns."

One possible option for the team to resolve this standoff (if they refuse to trade him) is to guarantee he's on the roster for 2015. That might bring Johnson back. They also could simply decide to pay him his $1 million bonus. Or, they could stand their ground and he'll play for no one in 2014.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

I doubt Idzik will pull the trigger anyway, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's doing his due diligence.

If he mucks things up enough to keep Johnson away from the Pats, he'll have done his job.

I would love to see a legit #1.  We have tons of cap room.

 

Caveat being if he does not have more that 2 years left on his existing deal. Anyone know his contract situation.

Not coming here. Has stated he doesn't want to go through a rebuild anymore. Patriots or Panthers are most likely.

He'll be a Patriot because there is no justice.

Funny thing is if he went to a team in California, and merely got a bump up from $10M to $12M, he'd clear nothing extra in his pocket.  He's paying nothing to an agent now (3% of $12M) and in his 8 home games he'd go from 0% income tax to 13.3%.  Not to mention relocating costs and the differential in real estate from Missouri City TX to lots of other places.

 

If it's about money, and the contender vs rebuilding stuff is just a tactic, he's better off where he is (if he can't get much more than $12M, which is a decent bet at his age).
