The Texans may not have a huge amount of cap space for the 2014 season, but if they do things correctly they could position themselves for a nice open salary cap for the 2015 season. That includes releasing A. Johnson after the 2014 season. Yes I said it.
Why would you do that? He's still highly productive at his age and could easily net the Texans a late second-round pick in a trade. From a team like the Patriots for example. It seems silly to only keep Andre Johnson for one more season and then release him when he still has adequate trade value.
