Veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson has high praise for coach Bill O’Brien’s new no-nonsense mentality to training camp.

“I love it, it’s great,” the 12-year veteran said when asked about O’Brien’s demeanor to ESPN.com. “The one thing that I like about him, and I think that’s the thing when I first met him, he’s straight up with you. He will let you know what needs to be heard. He’s not just going to tell you what you want to hear. I love his demeanor; it’s fun. I think just his whole attitude and everything he brings is a lot of fun.”

After a 2-14 season last year both Johnson and Houston are looking for improvements in all aspects going into the 2014 season.
