Four teams have expressed interest in trading for #Texans WR Andre Johnson, who is working out now "not thinking of the Texans," source said— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 10, 2014
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!
