Andre Johnson has already said he’s not sure he’ll show up for Texans training camp.
But what he really wants is to show up for someone else’s.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Johnson has told the Texans he wants to play elsewhere, and four teams are interested in making a move.
But to this point, the Texans haven’t budged, on money or location.
Johnson has already lost $1 million for not showing up this offseason, and he apparently asked the team for a chance to earn it back this year. As you might imagine, they said no.
For a guy about to turn 33, Johnson still has plenty to offer, but his contract makes a move tougher.
For one, the Texans would have to give in to what amounts to an offseason holdout. Plus, he’s due to make $10 million this year, meaning anyone who would trade for him would have to work out a new deal.
