Andre Johnson is the best player on the Houston Texans in franchise history, and although his team went from a 12-4 2012 campaign to 2-14, thanks in large part to struggles at the quarterback position, Johnson believes they shouldn’t worry about drafting a new franchise quarterback with the top pick.
Johnson spoke with KTRK-TV, in Houston and told them that “I have thought about different scenarios. Me, personally, if I had it, I would probably trade it, but that’s just my opinion.”
Johnson then made it clear that he doesn’t think it has to happen, stating “That doesn’t make it right. Doesn’t mean they should listen to me, because I am not the GM. I have never had to sit in the draft room like that.”
Despite the inconsistency at the quarterback position all season, Johnson finished the season with 109 receptions for 1,407 yards and five touchdowns. He doesn’t seem worried about losing production if the Texans don’t draft one of the top quarterbacks available with that pick.
Texans fans, is Johnson right? Should they trade the top pick, or should the front office ignore him and make the selection that they want with that top pick?
