by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster and Andre Johnson missed practice again Tuesday with what the team called minor injuries. Both are believed to be hamstring issues.

Coach Bill O'Brien doesn't seem to be enjoying questions about his two stars' health. He told reporters only that the injuries are not "life threatening."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson said he tweaked his right hamstring on a diving catch in practice Monday, reports the Houston Chronicle. He wasn't limping, he didn't put ice on it, and he said he's not worried about it, the paper said.

Andre Johnson prepared to finish his career with Houston


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Andre Johnson does not hold out from Texans camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Wide receiver Andre Johnson has reported to Texans camp on-time according to the Houston Chronicle and appears willing to be part of the team this season. Johnson missed the entire offseason program in protest over being a part of a rebuilding Texans roster, threatened to hold out and even had teams inquire about his availability via trade. But it looks like he'll continue his career with the Texans. 

Andre Johnson's agent in touch with Texans brass


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) The agent for Texans receiver Andre Johnson said he's in contact with the organization but declined to discuss the content of those conversations, reports the Houston Chronicle. Johnson was spotted at the team facility Monday. ESPN.com reported he was learning the new offense.

However, a source told the paper Johnson's appearance is not a guarantee he will attend training camp. The Texans open practice Saturday.


Report: Andre Johnson at facility to learn new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Receiver Andre Johnson went to the Texans' facility Monday to learn new coach Bill O'Brien's offense, reports ESPN.com. It could be an indication the seven-time Pro Bowler intends to show up to training camp. The first practice is Saturday.

Johnson skipped Houston's mandatory minicamp, plus voluntary OTAs, because he's upset with the direction of the team and doesn't want to go through another rebuilding year, according to NFL.com. He reportedly asked to be traded, but it looks like the sides are working things out.


Andre Johnson spotted at stadium, expected at camp on time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Johnson reportedly has asked to be traded, but there's no indication the Texans will accommodate him. Houston Chronicle columnist Jerome Solomon expects Johnson to report on time to training camp.


Report: Jets not in market for Andre Johnson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) The Jets could use a receiver to pair with Eric Decker, but Metro New York reports the team is not pursuing disgruntled Texans wideout Andre Johnson.

Acquiring Johnson "is not something we are actively pursuing," a team executive told Metro New York, adding “he isn’t a fit for where we are heading." The executive said Johnson is a special player, but he'd hurt the team's cap flexibility.

So far, Houston has not shown a willingness to trade Johnson, the report said.


Arian Foster trying to soothe Andre Johnson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson, unhappy with the organization's offseason moves, might hold out when veterans report for training camp July 25. Running back Arian Foster is trying to convince Johnson of his importance to the team and the city.

"He is Houston," Foster told KRPC-TV. "I remember when I had my little run where I had back-to-back like great seasons and I felt like this city loves me, they love me here. Everywhere I go this is still Dre's city. I don't care if James Harden is walking around or Dwight Howard or whatever. This is Andre's city."

Johnson could be fined $30,000 a day if he doesn't show up. He reportedly has requested a trade, but it's doubtful the team will oblige him.

"I understand where he's coming from. I really do," said Foster, who texted with Johnson recently. "This is a business and people forget this is a business and he's at a point in his career where he doesn't want money now. He wants to go win.

"I would love to have him here, but ultimately that's one of my friends outside of the field. I want him to do what's best for him," Foster added. "If he doesn't feel like playing anymore and wants to hang them up, I'm going to support him 100 percent. If he wants to come back and help us win, I'm all for that as well."


Andre Johnson's trade value a matter of disagreement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson could garner anywhere from a 2nd-round pick to a 5th-rounder in a trade, according to a survey of four executives by the Sideline View's Lance Zierlein. The 33-year-old Johnson reportedly wants out of Houston.

The Houston Chronicle asserted earlier Friday that the Texans won't trade Johnson.


Report: Andre Johnson not going anywhere


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Disgruntled Texans receiver Andre Johnson will not be traded, according to the Houston Chronicle. Johnson will either report to the team or he'll sit out, the paper said.

"Johnson, one of the best receivers in NFL history, will not be traded for several reasons," the paper's John McClain wrote. "The Texans want him to finish his career in Houston. They know they are a better team with him. And they don't want to set a precedent for similar situations that might develop in the future."

Johnson wants a trade, NFL Network reported Thursday, and four teams have expressed interest in acquiring the 33-year-old. He's scheduled to make $21.5 million over the next two seasons.


Getting rid of Andre Johnson would be costly


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) The Texans would incur $12 million in dead money on their salary cap if they cut or trade receiver Andre Johnson, reports ESPN.com. Johnson has asked for a trade, but the Texans are resistant to the idea, according to NFL Network.

Johnson is owed $21.5 million over the next two seasons. He's unhappy with the direction of the team, which is rebuilding with a new coach and new quarterbacks.


Report: Four teams interested in Andre Johnson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Four teams have expressed interest in trading for disgruntled Texans wideout Andre Johnson, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Johnson is unhappy with the direction of the Texans and has told them he wants to play for another team, but Houston is resistant, the report said.

Johnson stayed away from the team's offseason program, forfeiting $1 million in bonuses. He wanted to earn it back but the team said no, causing another rift, according to Rapoport.


Andre Johnson hints at Texans return


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/2014) Disgruntled wide receiver Andre Johnson told NFL.com that he will "hopefully" be at Texans training camp. 

"We'll see what happens," Johnson said. "Camp is three weeks away." 

Johnson held out of the Texans' offseason program after expressing disappointment with the direction of the team, though he never formally asked for a trade. Johnson will be 33 when the season starts and has played in four postseason games in 11 seasons. 


Andre Johnson to return to Texans?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2014) As veteran receiver Andre Johnson continues to hold out over his role with the Texans and the direction of the franchise, ESPN believes that Johnson will get over his unhappiness and play with the team this season.

Johnson has missed all of the team's offseason workouts after voicing his displeasure with his role on a team in the early stages of rebuilding. However, he is still under contract with the team and seems unlikely to get traded without restructuring his current deal. 


Andre Johnson won't attend minicamp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson won't attend mandatory minicamp Tuesday through Thursday, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Johnson was not expected to attend the minicamp. And his uncle and adviser, Andre Melton, said Johnson remains at odds with the Texans, and there's no immediate end in sight to the stalemate.

"Right now, that's all that he can do," Melton said. "We've done what we can do, so we're just sitting there waiting."

Johnson will be fined during each day of his absence. With training camp starting at the end of July, Melton said Johnson is holding off making a decision about his attendance and has yet to determine whether he'll officially hold out.

"We'll evaluate it in a month or so and see what's going on," Melton said.

Johnson, 32, is the Texans' highest-paid player this season. He's set to make a base salary of $10 million, with $15.6 million counting against the team's salary cap. He is under contract through 2016, potentially earning a combined $31.5 million in base salary the next three seasons.


Texans don't know when Andre Johnson will be back


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/13/2014) Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday that he wasn't sure when receiver Andre Johnson would rejoin the team, the Houston Chronicle reports. The Texans will hold a minicamp next week. Johnson has skipped offseason practices while being frustrated with the direction of the team. 

Andre Johnson skips start of OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson, who has expressed frustration with the team's offseason moves, skipped the first day of OTAs as expected, reports the Houston Chronicle. Johnson said earlier he plans to miss OTAs and the team's mandatory minicamp in June.

"I'll let Andre speak for himself," Texans coach Bill O'Brien told the media Tuesday. "We'd love to have him here. That's up to him."

The seven-time Pro Bowler "remains at odds with the organization," the report said.


Andre Johnson to no-show Texans minicamp?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) After wondering aloud if Houston was "still the place" for him last week, NFL Network reported that a source says Andre Johnson, the team's top receiver, will not attend the team's mandatory minicamp. There are also voluntary minicamp practices next week for the Texans and Johnson isn't expected to be there for that either. 

Johnson's frustrations aren't with the quarterbacks in Houston but rather with the team rebuilding again. Johnson will turn 33 in July and seemingly wants a chance to play with a contender. 

NFL Network thinks a trade is unlikely given Johnson's current contract. 


Andre Johnson unlikely to be dealt


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) It's unlikely the Texans will trade disgruntled wideout Andre Johnson, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Johnson is still very productive, and Houston lacks weapons in the passing game, the report said.

"If indeed the Texans do end up giving immediate work to recent draft pick Tom Savage, that's all the more reason Johnson's presence would be of supreme import, especially considering this particular kid quarterback missed two years of precious developmental time in college due to transfers," La Canfora wrote. "They need Johnson to help bring the offense along."


O'Brien says talks with Andre Johnson have been 'positive'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/17/2014) Texans head coach Bill O'Brien wouldn't go into what he said in conversations he's had with disgrunted receiver Andre Johnson regarding the team's future, but he did say they were encouraging. 

"The conversations that Andre and I have had have been very positive about what we're doing here as a team," O'Brien said per the Houston Chronicle. "We've had good communications. But as far as what Andre said, I'll let him speak for himself."

Johnson expressed unhappiness with the team's direction heading into his 12th season, wondering if Houston was "still the place" for him. 


Trading Andre Johnson not easy for Houston


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/14/2014) In the wake of comments made by Andre Johnson regarding the Texans and whether or not it's "still the place" for him, the topic of his salary and the cap ramifications of trading him is in focus. 

The Texans moving Johnson wouldn't necessarily hurt their salary cap according to OverTheCap.com, a site that specializes in NFL cap management and contract details. Per the site, Johnson's contract currently carries a cap charge of just over $15.5 million in 2014 along with a contract value of $11 million. If traded before June 1 he'll cost the Texans nearly $12 million against the cap, not the full $15.5 million. If traded after June 1 he'll cost them $4.6 million this year and $7.3 million next year, the same amount of space spread over two years. This actually would save them valuable cap space. 

But the problem is finding a team that has the space to absorb Johnson's current contract. Per OverTheCap.com, about a dozen teams could absorb his salary as-is and only four of them -- the Bengals, Colts, Eagles and Packers, are considered contenders. Any other team that could use his services and be considered a contender, such as the Panthers, Patriots or Steelers, would have to either restructure his contract or re-do deals with other players in order to make room for him.

Johnson might be willing to re-shape his deal and maybe even take less money to play for a contender. The Texans have said nothing about Johnson since Tuesday's remarks.


Andre Johnson talking his way out of Houston?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/13/2014) The Texans wrapped up the draft with Tom Savage and Ryan Fitzpatrick as their main quarterbacks and are likely headed into a rebuilding year. Andre Johnson sees this and it's possible that the 11-year veteran, knowing the clock is ticking on his career, is thinking about working his way out of Houston. 

"Is this still the place for me?" Johnson wondered Tuesday, the Houston Chronicle reported. Johnson made it clear he's frustrated with the state of the team and said he wasn't going to attend OTAs or the mandatory minicamp later this spring. He already missed the team's first voluntary minicamp before the draft. 

Johnson still has three years and $28 million left on his current contract -- he's due $6.5 million this year before ballooning to $10.5 million next year. He'll be 33 when the season starts. 


Andre Johnson not at Texans minicamp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/7/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson wasn't spotted at their voluntary minicamp practice Tuesday according to the Houston Chronicle. Johnson typically has appeared at these practices before.

"(Participation) is voluntary. We just coach who shows up," coach Bill O'Brien said.
