You may be right, but I've got the feeling that Smith will be overruled by McNair when it comes to A.J.
McNair has stated on more than one occasion that Johnson will retire as a Texan. I do not get the feeling that our owner is prone to misrepresenting his thoughts, especially about something so specific.
Obviously, A.J. has to be in agreement with it, but only time will tell if Smith's ax eventually lops his head off, too.
