Johnson said he doesn't plan to attend organized team activities and minicamp. He hasn't requested a trade, but wondered at a charity event on Tuesday, "Is this still the place for me?"
"I just look at my career. ... I've only been to the playoffs twice. I think we've only had three winning seasons," said Johnson, according to the Houston Chronicle. "I don't think any player wants to experience that. I think over time it can become very frustrating.
"And this offseason has been very frustrating for me; beginning of the offseason, I should say. That's just kind of where I'm at right now."
"I'm just taking some time, thinking about some things," Johnson said. "You know, when I make my decision I'll make my decision and go from there."
This isn't the first time Johnson has expressed his displeasure with the Texans, though the time element involved makes this a potentially different situation. Johnson will turn 33 in July and knows his time as an elite playmaker won't last forever.
