The Houston Chronicle reports that Johnson has his eyes on CB Nnamdi Asomugha, and says that the CB is thinking the same way, as he has talked to him about coming to Houston a couple of times already.
Like his teammates, receiver Andre Johnson has been working out during the NFL lockout, but he also has used his time off to recruit for the Texans. Johnson, who has recovered from postseason surgery on his ankle, has encouraged cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha to sign with the Texans when the lockout ends and he becomes an unrestricted free agent. “I’ve talked to him, and every time I hit him with it, it seems like it’s on his mind,” Johnson said. “I don’t even say, ‘Hey, man, what’s up?’ The first thing I say is, ‘What’s up? Are you coming to Houston? What are you going to do?’?” When the lockout ends, Asomugha, who is regarded as one of the two best cornerbacks in the league, will become the most attractive free agent. The Texans know him very well because they play the Oakland Raiders almost every season. “He’ll have to make a decision,” Johnson said. “I know it’ll be a big decision. He’s a very talented guy. I’d love to have him on our team.”
