When Bill O'Brien and the Houston Texans traded DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals in a deal that brought in David Johnson, it was met with a lot of criticism.

That deal is in the past now, though, and it's time for Houston and its fans to start focusing on what Johnson can bring to the team. By the looks of this recent picture from training camp, DJ is in some of the best shape of his career, and he means business in 2020.

Johnson got injured early in the 2019 season, and he really never seemed to get fully healthy after that.

Through six weeks he was averaging over 100 yards per game (49.7 rushing and 52.5 receiving) and had scored 5 touchdowns. After that, he never managed to play even 50 percent of the Cards' snaps in any given game, averaging a terribly 2.61 yards per carry.

With a full offseason to heal up, Texans fans will be hoping that the David Johnson they get is that early-season version from 2019, who is capable of contributing in all facets of the offense. And based on the shape he's in right now, he very well might be that healthy.
