Johnson skipped mandatory minicamp and a handful of other Texans organized events, which left uncertainty in regards to his attendance at training camp.
Andre Johnson holds the longest tenure on the team, as he was drafted third overall in the 2003 NFL Draft. Things were up in the air this season after Johnson made a public statement saying he wasn’t sure if he still wanted to be a part of the Texans organization.
Despite Andre Johnson’s absences, he remained in contact with first-year Texans coach Bill O’Brien, whose public comments about Johnson have continued to be consistently positive. O’Brien said he had “no concerns about Johnson being able to pick up the team’s offense when he did arrive.”
The seven time Pro Bowl receiver was also present at the facility on Monday where he was able to learn the team’s new offense.
The first practice of training camp will begin this Saturday at 8:30 am.
Andre Johnson at training camp is a great sign for the Texans. He has been a leader on and off the field, and looks like he may be ready to lead the Texans again this season.
