NFL Trade Rumors: Andre Johnson on the trading block?

Could one of the best players in the AFC South soon leave the division?

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Johnson has been unhappy with his contract situation for a while. Now there are rumors circulating about the Texans shopping him. I don't know how much truth there is to it, but it would be awesome to see him out of the division.

One team that keeps popping up is the New England Patriots. There are all the obvious connections with Bill O'Brien from his days in New England. The rumor is that part of that deal would include Ryan Mallett.

I would jump up and down for joy if the Texans traded Johnson to the Patriots for Mallett. That would mean they were pinning their future on Mallett, who in my opinion, is not going to be a good NFL quarterback.

Houston would be losing their best offensive player and gaining a quarterback that is going to fail in that scenario. Sounds like a plan to me!
