Titans add veteran receiver Andre Johnson on the day players report for the start of training camp.

The Tennessee Titans added another veteran wide receiver to the roster on Friday with the announcement of the signing of seven-time Pro Bowl receiver Andre Johnson.

The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with veteran WR Andre Johnson and OL Ronald Patrick.

 

During his 13-year NFL career, Johnson (6-3, 229) has appeared in 185 regular season games and accumulated career totals of 1,053 receptions, 14,100 receiving yards and 68 touchdown catches.  A seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Johnson ranks eighth in NFL history in receptions and ninth in league annals in receiving yards.  He is first among active players in both categories.  Additionally, his 51 career 100-yard receiving games are fifth in league history. 

In 2015, Johnson appeared in all 16 games with 14 starts for the Indianapolis Colts.  He totaled 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns.

In 12 seasons with the Houston Texans (2003-2014), Johnson became the team’s all-time leading receiver with 1,012 receptions for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns. He led the NFL in receiving yards in 2008 (1,575) and 2009 (1,569).

A native of Miami, Fla., Johnson became the fifth-leading receiver in University of Miami (Fla.) history before the Texans selected him with the third-overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft.

Patrick (6-1, 310) was a two-year starter at the University of South Carolina, who saw time at both guard and center during his college career. He was signed as a undrafted college free agent by the Dallas Cowboys following the 2014 NFL Draft. Patrick has time on the practice squad with Dallas, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo, but has not played in a regular season game.

 

The Titans roster currently stands at 90.
