Andre Johnson Not Worried About His Contract

Andre Johnson has four years left on the six-year, $60-million extension, including $15 million guaranteed, he signed in 2007.

Last week, Johnson took notice of the contract receiver Brandon Marshall got from Miami — four-years, $47.5 million, including $24.5 million guaranteed.

Marshall's contract was negotiated by Houston agent Kennard McGuire, who's been on a roll that began with New England's Vince Wilfork (five years, $40 million, $25 million guaranteed) and Green Bay's Ryan Pickett (four years, $28 million, $14 million guaranteed).

“Since Brandon signed that big contract, I've been getting a lot of text messages and phone calls,” Johnson said. “Everybody's like, ‘Hey, what are you going to do?'

“I can't worry about that. All I can do is to talk to people (general manager Rick Smith) upstairs. If it works out, it works out. If it doesn't, it doesn't. Anything's possible, though.

“I think it depends on the way you go about it. A lot of guys say harsh things in the media, and sometimes that takes them out of position. I think if you go about it in a respectable way, it can be done. It's important to me. It's not something out of the norm. It's just part of the business.”
