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.

Texans QB Ryan Mallett still recovering from torn pectoral muscle
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

A torn pectoral muscle ended Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett's season early in 2014, shortly after he assumed the starting role. 

A few months into recovery, Mallett still isn't 100 percent, he said at a charity event on Wednesday, according to the Houston Chronicle.  

"I'm getting close," Mallett said. "There's no magic potion. I'm trying to get better every day. We'll see how it goes."

The Texans have been talked about as a team that needs to upgrade at the quarterback position this offseason. However, coach Bill O'Brien wants Mallett back in the fold as an option to start in 2015. Mallett is going to hit free agency when the new league year begins if he is not re-signed by Houston before then.

Report: Serious concern over Texans' Jadeveon Clowney's knee
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

While Texans GM Randy Smith said earlier in the day that LB Jadeveon Clowney could be ready for training camp, there are other league sources that disagree.

Clowney is recovering from microfracture surgery in his knee. Tony Pauline of TFY Draft Insider cited several sources, both close to the Texans and around the league, as saying that there is "serious concern" over Clowney's knee. 

Opinions ranged from the injury keeping Clowney from having an impact in 2015 to the possiblity that Clowney would never fully recover.
