WR Andre Johnson doesn't feel at home with Texans

Houston Texans veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson gave some indication on Tuesday, that he may not want to spend his final years in a rebuilding mode. The team is coming off a 2-14 season last year, and selected Jadeveon Clowney with first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, which gave many hope for a brighter season.

"You just kind of look at things. I've been thinking about things this offseason. And I just kind of wonder sometimes, 'Is this still the place for me?'" Johnson told the Houston Chronicle.

When Johnson arrived in the NFL as a member of the Texans in 2003, they Texans struggled often. But in 2006 they finished with a 6-10 record under Gary Kubiak, and still failed to reach the playoffs. Since that point Johnson has only made the playoffs twice with no Super Bowl appearances to date. Johnson has also experienced three head coaches in his career, and new head coach Bill O'Brien hasn't curtailed any concerns Johnson has about the direction of this franchise.

At the start of the season a 33 year-old Johnson can't wait another several years in hopes of making a Super Bowl appearance.
The off season moves in Johnson's estimation have been head scratching.

"I just look at my career. I think we've only had three winning seasons. I don't think any player wants to experience that. I think over time it can become very frustrating. And this offseason has been very frustrating for me -- beginning of the offseason," said Johnson.

A trade may not be in Johnson's future because he signed with the team until 2016, however that does not negate the fact of how and what Johnson feels about this team being a contender.

Skipping workouts and plans to skip OTA's which is not uncommon for veterans players, look for Johnson who is the constant professional to be in camp and playing under the bright lights of the Houston fans in a Texans uniform.

Johnson makes several excellent points, and it can many wonder how much longer will we see Andre Johnson in a Texans uniform on Sunday, and most importantly happy?
