Looks like the snowball is starting to get bigger. More agents jumping on the "get money now in the uncapped year" band wagon.

Texans WR Johnson skips practice, wants new deal

HOUSTON (AP)—Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson(notes) wants a new contract.

The Pro Bowl wideout skipped the team’s first voluntary practice of the offseason Monday and no one is sure when he’ll join the team.

Johnson has five years left on an eight-year contract worth $60 million that included $15 million in guarantees. The Texans restructured his first contract with two years remaining.

General manager Rick Smith said the situation is “very difficult” because Johnson has so much time left on his current contract.

“It is because it’s something that’s not customary, that’s not common,” he said.

Still, the GM said he was willing to talk with Johnson.

“I’m not real worried about that because we redid him with two years left on his original deal and that was three years ago and over the first three years of that deal—even if you ask him—he’s been well compensated,” he said.

Johnson, who is entering his eighth season, has had more than 1,500 yards receiving in each of the last two years for the Texans.;_ylt=A ... ns-johnson
