    I am a big fan of Chad Johnson. He made Carson Palmer look like a credible QB. He is older, lost some of that swagger that made him great. Can he get it back? Not likely. Still better than our current #2 WR.

    Chad Johnson wants to play football again.

    The problem is that ... he can't play anymore. Last year with the Dolphins (even before the domestic dispute thing), he was terrible. He had no discipline and he couldn't catch the ball when he was wide open.

    If Tom Brady can't make you look good, then you've got a problem. If you can't be the obvious #1 WR on last year's Dolphins team WITHOUT Hartline, then you've got a very serious problem.

    Johnson didn't play any for the Dolphins. He was released the day after the first preseason game.

    I don't see why they couldn't sacrifice one of their 90 or so offseason roster spots to give him a shot. Knowing the ultra-conservative nature of the organization, it won't happen.

    There might also be a suspension looming due to his legal issues.

    The problem is he's simply washed up.

    No one wants an average player with baggage. The Bengals overlooked this when Chad was putting up big numbers, but sadly he isn't capable of doing this anymore.

    The Dolphins were on that HBO series about training camp and he couldn't catch the ball at all. He spent most of his time running his mouth with the corners, atleast from what they showed.

    Look, I am not even rooting for CJ to come to Houston but seriously Hard Knocks?

    Also guys may get slower as they get older but they don't forget how to catch.

    Thanks.

    Possibly, but they really need a team clown with Cody and Barwin fleeing town. Or maybe bring back David Anderson?

    That guy is a walking time bomb with a sense of humor.

    It still ends up exploding at the end of the day.

    Needs help with the concept of reality.

    Sounds great by me - plenty of fresh faced, fast rookies coming out of college who'd bust a gut to play for the Texans as well as Johnson.

    I'm talking about that pre-season game and the practices they televised as part of the Hard Knocks program. He wasn't catching anything. And then in that first pre-season game, he ran a slant, was wide open for a first down (on third down), the ball hit him right between the numbers, and he dropped it.

    Chad Johnson wants a pay check period. He's a joke and could care less about the Texans, he just knows we're an organization that needs WR's. NO THANK YOU.

    They might not, but it looks like he did.

    If he comes in super cheap we'd be crazy not to consider it.

    He's a vet minimum at this point... money won't be the issue.
