Former Texans Wide Receiver Andre Johnson Is Retiring

Former Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson retires from the NFL.

Former Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has decided to retired from the NFL. Johnson was on a one year deal with the Tennessee Titans, but had been used sparingly over the season, only catching 22 passes for 85 yards with 2 touchdowns. 

Johnson leaves the NFL as the Texans all time leader in receptions (1,012), receiving yards (13,597), and touchdown receptions (64). The most decorated offensive player for the Texans in franchise history, Johnson was selected to 7 Pro Bowls and 2-1st team All-Pro teams in his career with the Texans. 

Drafted out of the University of Miami in the 1st round (3rd overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft, Johnson will go down as possibly the best Texans player of all time. 

For Johnson's career (14 seasons), he amassed 1,062 receptions (9th in NFL History) for 14,185 yards (10th in NFL History) and 70 touchdowns with the Texans, Colts and Titans.
