There are few folks as universally revered in Texans historical past than Andre Johnson, the All-Professional large receiver who spent most of his profession Houston regardless of an typically flawed on-field product.

Johnson isn’t the outspoken determine a few of the different receivers of his period turned, so when he speaks, it maybe carries additional emphasis. He was blunt Tuesday when he addressed reviews Deshaun Watson was so disillusioned with the Texans that he could seek a trade elsewhere.
“If I’m @deshaunwatson I’ll stand my floor,” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “The Texans group is thought for losing gamers careers. Since (EVP of soccer operations) Jack Easterby has stroll into the constructing nothing good has occurred in/for the group and for some purpose somebody can’t appear to see what’s happening. Pathetic!!!”

Watson is especially offended at possession for not being clear within the hiring course of for its common supervisor or head coach, and is reportedly miffed at an absence of emphasis on numerous candidates.
The 25-year-old drafted from Clemson is definitely one of the best quarterback the franchise has ever had even at his early age — he is thrown 104 touchdowns to simply 36 interceptions in his first 4 NFL seasons and rushed for 1,677 yards. His manufacturing comes regardless of a shoddy offensive line that in 2018 made him the fifth-most sacked passer in a single season in league historical past and has continued to place him at risk of opposing defensive linemen. He led the NFL in passing yards in 2020 regardless of prime receiver DeAndre Hopkins being traded to Arizona earlier than the marketing campaign.
Johnson apparently felt related frustration to Watson as a participant and desires so as to add stress to Houston’s management because it plummets into disaster over its disgruntled celebrity. He is aware of Watson deserves higher.
