There is no doubt that the Houston Texans hit a home run with the third overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, when they selected Miami wide recevier Andre Johnson. Seven Pro Bowls later, the now 33-year old Johnson might have played his last game in Houston.

But should the Texans actually move on from their franchise leader in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns?
Following a bit of a down season in his 11th year, in which he recorded 85 receptions, 936 yards and three touchdowns, Johnson is scheduled to make a whopping $21.5 million in the next two seasons.
With the veteran wide out seen by many to be on the down-slope of his career, it’s unclear if the Texans will be willing to shell out that much money to retain him. Instead, Houston’s front office may ask Johnson to take a pay cut in order to remain on the team in 2015.
"“Nobody wants to hear that,” Johnson told the Houston Chronicle in December, when asked if he’s willing to reduce his pay. “But it’s the nature of the business. I’ve seen it happen, heard it happen, had it happen to friends of mine. I understand that.”"
But if Johnson and the Texans are unable to find common ground this offseason, should Houston move on from their legendary receiver? Tell us your answer in the poll question below and feel free to expand on it in our comment section.
