Texans WR Andre Johnson is willing to take a pay cut to stay with team

During an extended interview last week, the longest-tenured Texan Andre Johnson acknowledged he could face a major pay cut next year.

Johnson, 33, is set to make $10.5 million in guaranteed money in 2015, while counting $16.1 million against the team’s salary cap.

“Nobody wants to hear that,” said Johnson, when asked if he’s willing to reduce his pay. “But it’s the nature of the business. I’ve seen it happen, heard it happen, had it happen to friends of mine. I understand that.”

It sounds like Johnson is willing to re-work a deal for the only team he has played for.
