The talk of the Houston Texans for the past couple days is if veteran Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will stay with the franchise, or if he’ll leave.

Should the Texans trade Andre Johnson?

I was asked on Twitter what the Texans could possibly get in return for Johnson if they were to trade him. My guess was a third rounder, some others felt a second rounder, which to the right team could happen.

There was also an idea tossed out about a possible fourth rounder and Kirk Cousins if the Texans were to make a deal with the Washington Redskins.

Of course, all of this is a “What If” type of thing, but if Johnson really does feel his time in Houston is coming near to an end, maybe the Texans need to start looking into some trade options.

I’d prefer Johnson stay with the Texans for the rest of his career, but that rarely happens anymore when a player sticks to one team throughout his NFL career. We have to look no further than one future Hall of Fame quarterback named Peyton Manning for that to ring true.

Now, unfortunately, it might happen to Johnson now, the longest tenured Texans player.

What are your thoughts on the entire situation with Johnson and the Texans?
