Texans veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson says he's frustrated with the Texans' rebuild, and he is now thinking about his future with the organization.

"I wonder sometimes if this is still the place for me," Johnson said.

Johnson recently made headlines for not attending the team's mini camp. He says he's been in touch with new head coach Bill O'Brien, but is now taking some time to think about his role with the team.

"When you've been somewhere for a long time, and no one's been here as long as I have, and you just kind of look at things," Johnson said. "When you go through what I've gone through as a player and I'm on my third head coach, I think that's just something you have to give thought to.

"I've only been to the playoffs twice and we've only had two winning seasons and two 8 and 8 seasons. I don't think any player wants to experience that. I think over time it can become very frustrating."

Johnson says right now, he has no plans to attend the OTAs in two weeks or the team's minicamp in June. But Johnson also says he does not have any plans to leave Houston.

"I haven't went to anybody about a contract or I haven't come out and asked for a trade or anything like that, but it's just something I'm thinking about right now," said Johnson. "Right now, I'm just taking some time, thinking about some things, and when I make my decision I'll make my decision and go from there."

Johnson answered questions after making a $30,000 donation to the Houston Area Women's Center on behalf of the Andre Johnson Foundation.
