Former Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson tweeted his thoughts on the current situation surrounding quarterback Deshaun Watson's displeasure with the team, saying, "If I'm [Watson], I will stand my ground," Sarah Barshop of reports.

"The Texans organization is known for wasting players careers," the former All-Pro receiver added. "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!!!"

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who was traded by former Texans head coach and general manager Bill O'Brien in March, also tweeted, "When Dre speak listen."

Johnson, the Texans' franchise leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns, played for Houston from 2003-2014. His final season was O'Brien's first with the Texans. After Johnson retired, he transitioned into a role with the Texans' coaching staff under O'Brien. In August, Johnson left the Texans' coaching staff but continued as a Texans ambassador. Johnson and Easterby overlapped with the organization for more than a year.

Easterby, the Texans' executive vice president of football operations, was hired by O'Brien and team chairman and CEO Cal McNair in 2019. After McNair fired O'Brien in October, he named Romeo Crennel the team's interim head coach and gave Easterby responsibility over the personnel department.
