Bill O'Brien: 'Andre Johnson future up to him'

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien insists that the future of Andre Johnson is entirely up to whether the player wants to stay at the club.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has insisted that Andre Johnson will make his own decision regarding his future at the franchise.

Johnson raised doubt over whether he would stay in Houston by suggesting that it could be time to look elsewhere following another disappointing campaign in 2013.

The seven-time Pro Bowler is yet to submit a formal request for a trade but failed to turn up to the first day of the OTAs this afternoon.

"I have a ton of respect for him. We'd love to have him here now. That's up to him," O'Brien told reporters.

Johnson holds almost every receiving record in Texans history, having joined them as the third overall pick in the 2003 Draft.

Is it time for Andre Johnson to leave the Houston Texans?
