Andre Johnson said he laughed when told he wasn't full-time starter
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Disgruntled Texans wideout Andre Johnson said coach Bill O'Brien told him last week that the team didn't consider Johnson a likely starter any more, reports the Houston Chronicle. Johnson, who caught a team-high 85 passes last year, also said O'Brien also told him the Texans anticipated him catching about 40 balls this season.

"I just laughed," Johnson told the paper. "They gave me my role, and I just laughed at them. How do you tell a guy who is used to catching 80 balls a year that he was going to catch 40?"

Johnson added he was "floored" about the comment that he probably wasn't a full-time starter. "I don't feel like there is a guy on that team that can outplay me or outwork me," Johnson said. "I mean, who am I going to play behind?

"So I was real honest with him: 'If that's your role for me, you're going to be dealing with a miserable football player.'"

The relationship between Johnson and the team has deteriorated to the point that Houston is expected to cut Johnson if it can't trade him. Johnson, 33, is the franchise's most accomplished player, with 1,012 career catches for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns.

He's scheduled to make $10.5 million and count $16.1 million against the cap this season.

Report: Texans' Andre Johnson given permission to seek trade
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Wide receiver Andre Johnson has been given permission by the Texans to seek a trade, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle

The Texans told Johnson that he'd have a reduced role this upcoming season opposite of DeAndre Hopkins. Therefore, Johnson wanted out of his deal. If a trade cannot be made with a suitor, Johnson will be released

Johnson was the third overall pick in the 2003 NFL draft and is the greatest player in the history of the Texans. He's recorded 1,012 catches, 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns in his career.

A trade could be difficult, however, based on Johnson's upcoming $16.1 million cap figure and $10.5 million base salary for the 2015 season.

Texans' Brian Cushing has had three offseason surgeries
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Texans LB Brian Cushing has had three surgeries since the end of the season. 

In a public appearance on Saturday, Cushing told the Houston Chronicle's John McClain that he's had surgery on his broken right wrist as well as arthroscopic procedures on his left knee and left ankle. 

"It’s not uncommon for stuff like that to happen," he said of the two arthroscopic surgeries. "It’s just little things here and there, the residual effects of two major surgeries and injuries, the wear and tear of playing throughout the season. There were still some things bothering me a little bit. Just went in there and had real good success in both areas."

Cushing has a cast on his wrist. “It’s coming along real well,” he said. “I’m going to start working out a little bit. From a pain standpoint, there’s really nothing going on there. I’m real happy about that. I’m real happy to get the cast off and start doing some physical therapy on it, and I don’t have to worry about it anymore."

Report: Texans want WR Andre Johnson to take pay cut
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Receiver Andre Johnson has long been a staple of the Texans organization. But if he's unwilling to renegotiate his current contract, there's a chance Houston will part ways with him. 

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Texans could cut Johnson if he's unwilling to take a pay cut. Johnson is due a $10.5 million base salary and is carrying a cap figure of over $16.1 million. Cutting Johnson would save the Texans $8.825 million in cap space. 

Johnson played in 15 games a year ago and caught 85 passes for 936 yards and three touchdowns. A 12-year veteran, Johnson was taken with the third overall pick by Houston in the 2003 draft.

Texans OT Quessenberry said he's in remission following cancer treatment
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Texans offensive tackle David Quessenberry, diagnosed with lymphoma last June, said he now in remission. 

"I finished radiation two weeks ago," Quessenberry said, via Houston's ABC 13. "I'm officially in remission. I love saying that. I'm in remission and I'm starting into my maintenance phase."

Quessenberry missed the entire 2014 season as he underwent cancer treatment. It's unclear if Quessenberry will be able to participate in any offseason activities with the Texans. He's under contract through the 2016 season. 

Quessenberry was taken in the sixth round of the 2013 draft by the Texans.
