It's been speculated for some time now, but according to a report from NFL.com it's official, Andre Johnson has told the Houston Texans he wants to play for another team.

Johnson has reportedly been worried the Texans are at the start of a long rebuild after finishing last season with a league worst 2-14 record, but the NFL.com report states he's also unhappy he won't be able to earn back a $1 million roster bonus lost for not attending off-season workouts with the team.

The 33-year-old wide receiver has restructured his deal a number of times to help the Texans with the salary cap, and wants them to repay the favour by letting him earn back his roster bonus.

Johnson is due to make $10 million this season, making any trade difficult, but reports state there are four teams interested in the veteran's services.

Johnson is coming off a 109 catch, 1,407 yard season with the Texans in which he scored five touchdowns.

The seven-time Pro Bowler has seven career 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
