Texans WR Andre Johnson hasn't been to voluntary workouts all offseason in Houston. This week, he'll skip mandatory work for the first time and risk being fined by the team.
"Right now, that's all that he can do,'" Melton said of Johnson skipping work this week. "We've done what we can do, so we're just sitting there waiting."
Melton insisted that Johnson has a great relationship with new coach Bill O'Brien. The seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver seems more dissatisfied with the Texans' lack of a quarterback. Johnson could still skip training camp in July and August, when the fines can really rack up.
"We'll evaluate it in a month or so and see what's going on," Melton said.
It's not clear what Johnson's endgame is -- does he want to be traded? Johnson is missing valuable reps with a new QB in a new offense, and it's not doing much for his fantasy prospects heading into the 2014 season. Buyer beware.
