Kubiak thankful for Andre Johnson’s connections

One of the curiosities to develop during the locked-out NFL offseason is star players lobbying for other players who will eventually become free agents to join their teams. The latest such campaign came from Andre Johnson, who reportedly has lobbied Nnamdi Asomugha to join the Texans.

Asomugha, as you are likely well aware given all the conjecture, is the consensus top player available in what will be the free-agent market. So while Texans coach Gary Kubiak isn’t allowed to comment on free agents, he indicated during an interview with NFL Network’s Rich Eisen he’s appreciative of Johnson’s networking skills.

“We obviously have to continue to get our football team better. I’m glad Andre has some great friends out there, so we’ll see what happens,” Kubiak said with a laugh.

While it’s difficult to handicap the Houston’s chances of landing Asomugha, it’s worth noting both Vic Carucci (story here) and Jason La Canfora (report here) have suggested the Texans will be legitimate suitors. But Johnson might have his work cut out for him.
