Default If You Were Andre Johnson Would You Stay Or Go ?

I know we all want AJ to stay in a Texans uniform, take the fan aspect out of this and put yourself in his shoes, what would you do. Why would you stay or why would you go.

I would go if I thought that Carr was going to cost me trips to the pro bowl.

If I was AJ? I'd want off of this team as quick as you can say "make a deal".

It all depends,if he goes to another team and has as many dropped balls as the second half of this season. If that were the case another QB might not keep looking his way.

I seriously doubt AJ is worried about going to the probowl. He's playing for pride.

If I were AJ, I'd be mad as hell when they franchise me....... because that is the only way we will keep him here in Houston.

& when he is slapped with the Franchise tag, I hope he holds out, and not participate in OTAs, TC, and the preseason unless they get him a QB.

If I was Dre I'd say trade me. He only has so many good years in him. I don't see the team fixing QB, o-line, and play calling problems any time soon. This is a slow moving organization; they need a culture change.

His contract probably has performance incentives - how many $100Ks do you think he's lost in this offense the past couple of years.

For AJ, it probably depends on his options and the money involved.

I think he is locked up for 3 more years anyway, so he is pretty much stuck with zero leverage.

AJ is not T.O. He's staying. If he tries the FA market, he'll regret going to the Redskins.

I'd bet money that Bud Adams would pick him up, and have VY throw to AJ on every down.

Leverage or not, he could force a trade. It happens.

As the front office says every time they cut a player, "football is a business". Maybe Dre will see it that way and try to do what is good for him rather than the team. Almost any team he went to would be an upgrade.

I don't know how "settled in" he is. A lot of players treat their work cities as a temporary residence.

He will stay if Carr leaves and Sage starts

He will leave if Carr returns as the 'franchise' QB next year

A couple of thoughts:

1. Andre's the reason Sage looks as good as he does. He made some acrobatic catches in the Titans game. If Sage got the job, it seems like he and AJ already have chemistry.

2. Where does all this speculation come from about AJ wanting a trade anyway?

I don't think AJ has an option like Carr had for his.

That issue has been discussed at great lengths on this board and some very reputable people have stated his deal is for 7 years straight up.

Apparently, AJ didn't have a big time agent do his deal.

What is your source? Maybe you are right...
