Andre Johnson Holdout Could Hinder Texans Training Camp

HOUSTON (AP) — As the Houston Texans prepare for training camp their biggest question mark involves a player who probably won’t be there when they take the field.

Disgruntled receiver Andre Johnson skipped offseason workouts and mandatory minicamp after wondering in May if Houston was “still the place for me.” Johnson joined the franchise in its second season.

A holdout by the team’s longest-tenured player could cast a pall on the beginning of coach Bill O’Brien’s first season as camp opens Saturday.

The Texans were among the favorites to reach the Super Bowl entering last season after reaching the playoffs the previous two years. But things fell apart amid poor play by quarterback Matt Schaub, coach Gary Kubiak was fired in December and Houston finished 2-14.
