Raise your hand if you are at all surprised by this:

We sort of knew all along that it was little more than wishful thinking that a team would trade for Andre Johnson, given his cap number in 2015 and existing contract, but there was a scintilla of hope something could be worked out in light of how things played out with Matt Schaub last year. I suppose the Texans could still theoretically trade 'Dre without his consent, but that strikes me as both unlikely and unseemly.

We're moving closer to the inevitable. Won't be long now.
