Houston Texans’ veteran pass catcher Andre Johnson still remains in a standstill when it comes to his contract and a potential return to play with his team in 2014. Fellow teammate, Arian Foster weighs in on the situation.
"This is Andre Johnson's city. He is Houston."

Foster had this to share with KPRC in Houston (via Fox Sports).
He is Houston. I remember when I had my little run where I had like back-to-back great seasons. I felt like this city loves me, they love me here. Everywhere I go, this is still Dre’s city. I don’t care if James Harden is walking around, Dwight Howard, whatever. This is Andre Johnson’s city. He is Houston. That’s what it means more than anything. He’s been a staple here for so long.
Foster can talk up Johnson until he’s blue in the face, but the NFL is a business and if it’s a ring the 33-year-old Johnson wants before retirement, a trade might be the only possibility. The Texans’ lack of appeal coming off of a 2-14 season under revolving door a quarterback is a an understandably frustrating situation for Johnson.
Reportedly, there are four teams interested in a potential trade for Johnson. In the meantime, the clock is ticking away to the start of training camp for which Johnson’s attendance at this time remains yet to be determined.
