Andre Johnson is back with the Houston Texans, saying he reported to camp simply because he loves the game.

The star receiver had skipped offseason workouts and mandatory minicamp after wondering in May whether Houston was "still the place for me."

On Friday, he wouldn't divulge what exactly was said or done to get him to return to the team. But he says he's excited to be back with his teammates and that it's his plan to finish his career with the Texans.

The 33-year-old Johnson, whose 1,407 yards receiving in 2013 ranked second in the AFC, rejoins a team that is looking to bounce back from a disastrous 2-14 season.
