Texans backup quarterback Case Keenum wants to work on his craft during the break before training camp.
And he wants to do so with a guy none of the Texans’ quarterbacks threw to this offseason.
Kennum told Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com that he wanted to get together with disgruntled wide receiver Andre Johnson, who has stayed away from all team activities.
Asked if he was going to call Johnson, Keenum smiled and said “Yeah, I might.”
“Dre is Dre, you know?” Keenum said. “Obviously, he’s done a lot of things around this league, especially here in Houston. And I’m one of his biggest fans. He’s a heckuva player and it’s definitely an honor to step on the field with him. It makes me bring my game up. It makes me want to improve myself and do what I do better. He has that quality to bring out the best in other people and it’s something that I’ve definitely learned from.”
Of course, Johnson would make the Texans better by simply showing up for work, but at this stage no one knows when that will be.
