Opponents suggesting Texans WR Andre Johnson has lost a half-step

The Texans think they solved their problems at the No. 2 wide receiver spot with the drafting of DeAndre Hopkins @Nukdabomb this year. The reports so far have been very positive on that front.
Now, what will the Texans do with their No. 1 wide receiver spot? Yes, the one that has been locked down by Andre Johnson @johnson80 for the past decade. He is coming off one of the most productive seasons of his career, but according to Len Pasquarelli of National Football Post, "some opponents suggest that Johnson has perhaps lost a half-step and isn't as explosive."
Pasquarelli adds that the Texans "privately allowed there is a need to start developing one of the other young wide receivers as well."

Fantasy Analysis:

He's talking about you, Devier Posey, Lestar Jean and/or Keshawn Martin @KeshawnMartin82.
I don't doubt that Johnson has lost a bit of pop. He turns 32 years old in a few days, so that only makes sense. But as he showed last year, Johnson can still play at an elite level in this league. I have been more than happy to take him in the third round of mock drafts.
