Texans won't trade Andre Johnson

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

The Andre Johnson controversy will be resolved one of two ways: He will report to the Texans under the terms of his contract, or he will sit out.

Johnson, one of the best receivers in NFL history, will not be traded for several reasons. 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.

And here's a prediction: When he finally reports, probably before the Washington opener, Johnson will work as hard as ever, keep his mouth shut as he always does, learn his new system, have another terrific season, and continue to augment his Hall of Fame résumé.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story, written by the trustworthy John McClain, indicates that Johnson will show up and play at some point in training camp. We'd be more likely to select Johnson in the 4th round of 12-team drafts, but he still has to learn a new offense and build a rapport with new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Also, players that miss offseason activities or report late to camp have a tendency to pull a hamstring when they return, so that's a possibility as well.
