The conflicted WR may play for the Texans in 2014 despite a holdout that has lasted several months and a rejected trade request.
Andre Johnson’s holdout with the Texans may be coming to an end with no change in contract or trade.
According to ESPN.com’s Tania Ganguli, Johnson visited the Texans’ training facility on Monday to learn the team’s new offense under first-year Head Coach Bill O’Brien. He has also visited the team’s facility several other times during the past offseason. However, there is no indication yet as to whether Johnson will report to training camp when it opens later this week.
Johnson, the Texans’ all-time leader in leading receiver, has indicated that he no longer wishes to play in Houston and has requested a trade. The Texans, however, have rejected his request on several occasions despite alleged interest in Johnson by several NFL teams.
Johnson led the Texans in receiving in 2013, and has led the team in receiving in 10 out of his 11 years with the team.
The Texans were 2-14 in 2013 after going 12-4 in the regular season the year before.
