Andre Johnson says he's frustrated with the Texans rebuild that's why he missed the mini camp.
Obviously, Johnson's biggest concern is who is going to get him the ball and with the failed trade for Ryan Mallett, the Texans haven't done anything but draft fourth-rounder Tom Savage to change things. Unless Houston has something big and secretive planned, they will be heading into training camp with virtually the same offense, plus or minus a few minor tweaks, and that's bothering Johnson as it means he is not going to be seeing targets like many of his other high-end contemporaries. He still has three years remaining on the seven-year deal he signed back in 2010, so a potential deal could happen, though his escalating salary goes to $11M for the final year of his deal.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Kobe Bryant is still unsure if 2015-16 will be his final season in the NBA.
“We haven’t set anything in stone and I’ve talked about it before. But could this be the last [season]? Absolutely," Bryant told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports. "It’s tough to decide. It’s really tough to make those types of decisions." In a nutshell, Kobe said that he won't be able to make a decision until after the season. He wants to see how much he enjoys playing still and the only time to make that determination is after the season comes to a close. It looks like this will annoyingly drag out all season and all of next summer. Analysis: Howard Bender
Ameer Abdullah is apparently impressing during the early stages of training camp.
Abdullah has been turning heads since being selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. The Lions' see him as the second coming of Reggie Bush in Joe Lombardi's offensive system. If that is true, he'll get the ball on average 10.5 times per game but most expect that number to be the bare minimum for Abdullah's rookie-year. The ADP on Ameer has him getting selected in the sixth round of most drafts. Analysis: Drew Phelps
