Andre Johnson hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 65 yards Saturday night against the Raiders.
Johnson saw plenty of work with the first-team offense, recording all three of his catches on the second possession. He also was targeted on a fade in the back corner of the end zone. Johnson showed he was out of gas last season, but the Titans seem intent on given him a role. We will see how long that lasts. Aug 27 - 10:53 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said he knows Andre Johnson "can play."

Johnson has not made much of an impact through two preseason games, but that does not worry Mularkey. "He has been very competitive," he said. "He doesn’t have to do anything more for me to know he can play." While he might not have a big role, this quote makes it sound like Johnson is on track to make the team. The veteran managed 41 catches for 503 yards and four scores with the Colts last season.

The Nashville Tennessean expects Andre Johnson to make the Titans' 53-man roster.

Signed for the league minimum, Johnson is due no guaranteed money, making him an extremely easy cut. The Titans' receiver corps has been struggling in camp, however, with reporter Jason Wolf calling Johnson one of the only consistent players so far. We agree Johnson will probably make the team, but he'll be off the map in fantasy.

The Titans' deal with Andre Johnson contains no guaranteed money.

It means the Titans could cut Johnson at the end of camp without paying him a dime. As a vested veteran, Johnson's $950,000 salary will become guaranteed if he makes the Week 1 roster, but that's an obstacle he still must cross at age 35 coming off a season where Johnson looked washed up. In an ideal world for the Titans, Dorial Green-Beckham would step up and make Johnson irrelevant.

Titans signed WR Andre Johnson.

Johnson loves the AFC South. After spending his first 12 seasons with the Texans, Johnson joined the Colts last year only to have easily the worst season of his career. Johnson appeared to lose all of his separation skills and found it very difficult to get open in Indianapolis. He eventually lost two-wide snaps to Donte Moncrief and finished with a 41-503-4 line. Johnson is joining a crowded receiving corps in Tennessee, but the Titans could be looking at him more for leadership purposes with youngsters Dorial Green-Beckham, Justin Hunter, and Tajae Sharpe in need of guidance. Johnson and Harry Douglas could be competing for one roster spot.

Free agent Andre Johnson worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, it was a "feel-out session for both sides." Whatever it was, it signals further displeasure with sophomore Dorial Green-Beckham. Johnson appeared to have very little left in 2015, but a young team like the Titans would value his intangibles more than most.
Jul 26 - 5:50 PM

Free agent Andre Johnson still plans to play this season.

Johnson, along with many other NFL and college players, has been training with footwork expert Rischad Whitfield this summer to try and improve his game. Turning 35 next week, Johnson looked washed last season with the Colts, but it's hard to imagine he won't get at least one more chance at some point this year. It simply might have to wait until injuries happen.
Jul 6 - 10:50 AM

Free agent Andre Johnson expects to play in 2016.

Johnson hasn’t visited with any teams since his early-March release. He’s been training on his own and has no plans to retire. Interest in Johnson shouldn’t pick up until after the draft.
Apr 20 - 5:07 PM

Free agent Andre Johnson said Saturday that there's "no question" he'll continue playing after his release from the Colts.

"I am playing, there's no question about that," Johnson said. "I know I can still play this game. ... I'm not discouraged about what happened this past season, I'm just waiting for an opportunity." Turning 35 in July, Johnson was ineffective in a possession role with Indy last year. He simply isn't good enough to be a third receiver anymore, and No. 4 wideouts usually have to play special teams.

Colts released WR Andre Johnson.

The move saves Indianapolis $5 million against the cap. Soon-to-be 35-year-old Johnson was viewed as a great signing last offseason by the Colts after the Texans released him, but Houston proved to be right at the end of the day, as Johnson had next to nothing left in the tank. He put up a miserable 41-503-4 line and averaged 1.08 yards per route. Johnson reportedly still wants to play in 2016, but he's going to be hard pressed to find non-insulting, one-year offers.
Mar 4 - 9:21 AM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder "hears" Andre Johnson wants to play in 2016.

If true, it will not be for the Colts. Indy is fully expected to move on from Johnson's $7.5 million cap hit after the veteran failed to make any significant impact. Johnson may get one-year offers once he hits the open market, but he did not appear to have anything left in the tank last season. He will turn 35 in July.
Feb 29 - 12:36 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Andre Johnson "has played his last down for the Colts" and is considering retirement.

Due $7.25 million, Johnson is a no-brainer release for the Colts whenever they choose to make it official. The soon-to-be 35-year-old's play fell off a steep cliff in his lone season in Indianapolis, and it's hard to see another team wanting to sign him. Instead of letting the market dictate his playing future, Johnson could simply opt to go out "on his own terms" and hang 'em up.
Feb 24 - 9:33 AM

The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer considers it "likely" the Colts release Andre Johnson.

The Colts were lauded for their signing of Johnson last offseason following his release from the division-rival Texans, but apparently Houston knew something most of us didn't; Johnson was done or close to it. Now going on age 35 and coming off a horrific 41-503-4 line, Johnson may be one-and-done in Indy. The Colts can save $5 million against the cap by releasing Johnson. They can move forward with T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett.
Feb 10 - 11:13 AM

Colts.com's Kevin Bowen considers Andre Johnson a potential cap cut.

Johnson managed just 41 catches in his first season with the Colts. He’s been in heavy decline the last two years and will be entering his age-35 season. The Colts have an in-house replacement for Johnson in Phillip Dorsett, making it an easy decision to move on. Releasing Johnson would clear $5 million in cap space, but leave $2.5M in dead money.

The Colts can clear $5 million in cap space by releasing Andre Johnson.

Cutting Johnson would also create $2.5 million in dead money, but it's basically an iron-clad lock to happen. Johnson's play fell off a cliff during his age-34 campaign, and there's little reason to expect a rebound for 2016. Even if Johnson were to rebound, it's unlikely to be on a team with so much young receiving talent. Johnson should be elsewhere next summer, and not a guarantee to make a 53-man roster.
