Houston, the Texans have a SERIOUS problem ... team legend Andre Johnsonis now ripping the org. -- calling the franchise "pathetic" amid all of the drama with star QB Deshaun Watson.
The retired Houston wideout -- who's the only member of the organization's Ring of Honor -- sounded off on the Texans in a tweet Tuesday ... telling Watson to not back down from his demands from ownership.
"If I’m @deshaunwatson I will stand my ground," Johnson said. "The Texans organization is known for wasting players careers."
If I’m @deshaunwatson I will stand my ground. The Texans organization is known for wasting players careers. Since Jack Easterby has walk into the building nothing good has happened in/for the organization and for some reason someone can’t seem to see what’s going on. Pathetic!!!
