Texans talking with Andre Johnson's agent

<p> The ice between the Houston Texans and disgruntled star wide receiver Andre Johnson is beginning to thaw.</p> <p> Johnson has been absent from the Texans this offseason and expressed disapproval about the direction of the team.</p> <p> Now, his agent, Kennard McGuire is talking with the Texans and Johnson was reportedly in the Texans' facility on Monday.</p> <p> “I am not refuting, confirming or denying any reports or stories,” McGuire told the Houston Chronicle. “Per the collective bargaining agreement, there’s a period in which veteran players are not allowed to participate or be in their team’s facilities and that period is as such. While I am personally in contact with the Texans organization, those conversations will remain between myself, the organization and Andre Johnson.”</p> <p> It's regarded as a positive sign that Johnson may eventually report to training camp. Practice starts Saturday.</p> <p> Follow me on Twitter: <a href="http://www.twitter.com/RavensInsider">@RavensInsider</a></p> <p> Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun</p>
