Andre Johnson will retire with the Houston Texans after he signed a one day contract with the team. He spent his first 12 years with the Texans before playing with the Colts and Titans over the past two seasons.
Johnson announced his retirement in October after playing eight games for the Titans where he had just nine catches for 85 yards.
In November, Johnson said “it would mean a lot” for him to retire as a Texan. At the age of 35 he finishes his career with 1,062 catches, 14,185 receiving yards and 70 touchdowns. He was the overall number 3 pick in the 2003 draft and was selected to seven pro bowls and twice named first team All-Pro.
Brian T Smith from the Houston Chronicle tweeted the announcement on Monday.
