Andre Johnson isn't happy with his contract

I swear these players are just stupid. Dude has 5 years left on his deal that he signed in 2007. Contracts dont really mean anything if players just want new one every few years.

So I spent a chunk of my weekend poring through NFLPA contract data, looking for the most underpaid and overpaid players at each position for an article in the upcoming PFT magazine.

When I looked at the Texans' contracts, I wrote down Andre Johnson's name as a candidate to make the underpaid list. $5.8 million is a lot of cash, but it's pretty reasonable for the best receiver in football. (We'll give him a slight edge over Larry Fitzgerald.)

It looks like Johnson and his agent (his uncle Andre Melton) agree with our underpaid assessment. The Texans receiver skipped Houston's OTA Monday because of displeasure with his contract, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Being underpaid and having grounds to get a new deal are not the same thing. AJ has a major problem. He has five (5!) years left on a eight year, $60 million contract he signed in 2007.
Yea long term contracts won't mean anything anymore because players are almost ALWAYS going to complain that they are underpaid after the second year of the contract. It's a shame.

I'm afraid that we might go through the same type of thing with Crabs in a couple years.


If you didn't play well could we renegotiate and pay you less?
Uncle Melton and John McClain in the same article classic. .

But yea at times I agree players should look for new contracts but this guy already signed an extension you gotta play that out.
Thank god we have players like Kentwan Balmer, who dont complain..... or do anything for that matter.

Now that I think about it I'm pretty unhappy with my contract as well
I say we give them Brandon Jones and a 5th rounder for him. You know Brandon Jones isn't complaining about being underpaid.

Zeigler got more upside tho
Long term contracts haven't meant anything in the NFL for a while. Just ask DeAngelo Hall after he signed with the Raiders.
