Deshaun Watson has been profoundly unhappy with the Texans organization, and he just got support from one of the best players in franchise history, Andre Johnson:
If I’m @deshaunwatson I will stand my ground. The Texans organization is known for wasting players careers. Since Jack Easterby has walk into the building nothing good has happened in/for the organization and for some reason someone can’t seem to see what’s going on. Pathetic!!!

That’s about as savage a shot as you’ll see from a former star. It’s worth noting that, until now, Johnson was not in the bad graces of the organization. He was even on the team’s search committee for a new head coach and general manager this offseason. Texans owner Cal McNair and power broker chaplain Jack Easterby ignored the advice of the committee and decided to hire Nick Caserio from the Patriots as general manager.
This might be Andre Johnson’s biggest beatdown since Cortland Finnegan:
You’d have to think that Easterby’s power should be dwindling from here on out, but with this franchise, who knows.
Update: DeAndre Hopkins, whom Jack Easterby and Bill O’Brien traded away from Houston, agrees with Johnson:
