Texans WR Andre Johnson says he laughed at his coach when told of reduced role

Yesterday news broke that Texans Head Coach Bill O’Brien told Andre Johnson, the franchise’s most accomplished offensive player, a man who has averaged 84 receptions per season, including a team-high 85 last year, that the Texans anticipated he would catch around 40 passes next season, according to the Houston Chronicle. Well according to the report, Johnson just laughed at his coach.

“I just laughed,” Johnson told the Chronicle on Monday night. “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?”
