There was some news from the Houston Texans that I didn’t even realize was going on with the displeasure of one Andre Johnson.

The Texans veteran wide receiver, Johnson, is one of the best wide outs in not only in current day NFL, but in the history of the entire league.

Johnson has been with the the Texans through the good times, the bad times and the really bad times that was 2013 season.

Here is what Johnson said to members of the Houston media on Tuesday:

"“Nobody’s been here as long as I have. 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, let’s just say it, is the greatest Houston Texans player in franchise history.

We all know or should know that, but now it does make me wonder if the Texans and Johnson should part ways before this season even begins?

‘Is this still the place for me?’

I’d rather watch the Texans with Johnson on the roster, but if this is what it will be like, would the Texans be better served in trading him just to keep what could be a distraction of an event away from the upcoming 2014 season?

This teams has enough problems of improving from last year, plus having a rookie head coach in the NFL, do they need their best offensive player being angry all the time as well?
