Thanks, man. I mainly base it on how I perceive McNair's stated thoughts.

McNair has only referred to two players as "legacy players", guys he believes will ultimately be in the HoF. AJ and Watt are those two players.

Obviously, part of the equation is taking care of those players, and if McNair's history with AJ is considered, he's done a great job of ensuring they are financially happy to be here.

Emotional ties are obvious to how the fans respect the players, and that's obvious with both AJ and Watt. AJ is probably the first football player since Earl Campbell that has reached an almost 'deity' status in the city. And I see Watt getting there, as well.

As for his wanting to come back , that's great ..... but its not like he has a choice in the matter , he's under contract.

Why wouldn't he want to return?

Can we stop this manufactured garbage sentiment about Andre Johnson wanting out?

Well, there are some folks who apparently don't put much stock in being under contract...

#Texans' Andre Johnson digs Johnny Manziel: "He doesnt have the name Johnny Football for nothing."

#Texans' Andre Johnson on Michael Sam: "Hes not hiding anything, hes not pretending to be someone.

Andre Johnson on BO'B: 'He really loves the game of football. Hes very passionate about it. Hes all about team.'

'I still have a few more years left in me' - Healthy Andre Johnson...

Andre Johnson hasn't given any thought to retiring. Knows he's in latter stage of his career. But he feels fine and plans to keep playing.

#Texans' Andre Johnson respects Michael Sam's announcement. Added, "I don't know," when asked how an #NFL locker room will handle it.

#Texans' Andre Johnson has only spoken briefly with Bill O'Brien.

#Texans' Andre Johnson said he's fully healthy. Wrist injury has healed.
