The news was broken last night by John McClain that the Texans will allow Johnson to seek a trade and if no trade is found, he will be released.
Andre has been one of the best receivers in the league for 12 seasons now. He is also arguably the best player the Houston Texans have ever had to date.
However at 34 years old and seeing his numbers dip, it makes sense for both parties to move on. His salary of over $10 million over the next two years is too much for a young team like Houston to pay.
Moving on makes sense for Johnson too, as he can finally become a player on a team with championship aspirations.
A pairing with Indianapolis would be even better for him as he has never had quarterback as talented as Andrew Luck of the Colts to throw him the ball.
The move could make sense for both parties, but the real question is if the Colts want to make a move now or wait for the Texans to cut ties with the receiver. Waiting it out could result in obtaining the veteran’s services at a much lower rate. Although it could also mean the Colts lose out to another team.
