(NEW YORK) — The Houston Texans will use the 2013 NFL Draft as a chance to improve their team anyway they can. Wide receiver Andre Johnson hopes that includes drafting a wide receiver.
Johnson is still one of the most dominant receivers in the NFL, but as he gets older, he realizes he needs more help. The Texans had one of the top offenses last year, but that was in large part due to Johnson along with running back Arian Foster. Kevin Walter, the team’s number two wide receiver in 2012, caught just 41 passes with two touchdowns last season.
“I’d like to have another [receiver],” Johnson told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “I’m all for it. I’ve asked for it for a while. The more weapons we have, the better it’ll be for the team.”
“If we draft a receiver, I’m going to help him as much as I can,” Johnson added. “I’ll answer any questions he has because I want him to perform well.”
Johnson turns 32 the July, which isn’t exactly the ideal age for a wide receiver in the NFL.
Despite his age, Johnson has an incredibly productive 2012 season. He caught 112 passes for 1,598 yards with four touchdowns.
