Seven time Pro-Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson visited the Titans to as he continues to look for a team for the 2016 season.

Sources have confirmed that seven-time Pro-Bowl, free agent wide receiver Andre Johnson visited the Tennessee Titans on a "feel out" type visit as Johnson continues to look for a team for the 2016 season.

Johnson, who spent last season with the division rival Indianapolis Colts after spending the first 12 NFL seasons with another division rival Houston Texans was in Nashville  on Tuesday, as first reported by the Houston Chronicle's John McClain. 

Per sources that have been confirmed by ESPN's Adam Schefter, no signing is imminent as the two sides are getting to know one another before either makes a decision on a potential signing. 

Johnson signed with the Colts as a free-agent prior to last season, but has lost a step and was released by Indianapolis in February.

The Titans currently have 89 players on the roster, meaning that there is one open spot remaining that could be filled by a Johnson signing, though the veteran would join a very crowded room where he would compete for a spot on the bottom of the roster.

Johnson has no special teams experience having come into the league as the third overall selection in round one by the Texans in 2003. That along with his age would seem to make Johnson a long shot to make the roster, though he could be added and given a chance in camp to show what is left in a future Hall of Fame candidate.
