WR Johnson not worried about contract despite Marshall’s new deal

The Chronicle today talks about star wide out Andre Johnson, saying that he is not all that worried about his contract at this point, despite the huge amount of money Brandon Marshall got last week when he was moved to the Dolphins:

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has four years left on the six-year, $60 Million extension, including $15 Million guaranteed, he signed in 2007. Last week, Johnson took notice of the contract Brandon Marshall got from Miami, four-years, $47.5 Million, including $24.5 Million guaranteed. Marshall’s contract was negotiated by Houston agent Kennard McGuire, who’s been on a roll that began with New England’s Vince Wilfork (five years, $40 Million, $25 Million guaranteed) and Green Bay’s Ryan Pickett (four years, $28 Million, $14 Million guaranteed). “Since Brandon signed that big contract, I’ve been getting a lot of text messages and phone calls,” Johnson said. “Everybody’s like, ‘Hey, what are you going to do?’ I can’t worry about that. All I can do is to talk to people (general manager Rick Smith) upstairs. If it works out, it works out. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. Anything’s possible, though. I think it depends on the way you go about it. A lot of guys say harsh things in the media, and sometimes that takes them out of position. I think if you go about it in a respectable way, it can be done. It’s important to me. It’s not something out of the norm. It’s just part of the business.”
