I think barring injury it is far more likely you see the last year of his deal redone in an extension through him being 37 or so.
How many non-problem child 1500 yd WRs do you see getting released or traded? Correct me if I am wrong, but I think the answer is none.
Yeah, I do not see McNair letting AJ go anywhere unless AJ asks for it (even then, who knows).
McNair used the term "legacy player" when talking about AJ, and it was in context of AJ playing for the Texans his entire career. I do not see him being released or traded unless it is something that McNair and AJ have worked out.
The only other player that McNair has used the term "legacy player" is JJ Watt, which is another reason I do not see him going anywhere (beyond the contract and franchise options the next four years).
