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.
Jan 7 - 1:56 PM

Andre Johnson caught 4-of-6 targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 17 win over Tennessee.

It's one of only three games Johnson managed a touchdown. Johnson wasn't more than an afterthought in the Colts offense and has been in decline the last two years. He won’t be more than a possession No. 4 receiver if Indy decides to bring him back. The Colts don't owe Johnson any guaranteed money beyond this year.
Jan 3 - 5:30 PM

Andre Johnson caught 3-of-5 targets for 39 yards in the Colts' Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

He finished second on the team in targets and receiving yards in a game where Indy managed 168 passing yards as a team. If the Colts can't sneak into the playoffs, Week 17 against the Titans could be Johnson's final game in blue and white. GM Ryan Grigson regrettably signed Johnson to a three-year, $21 million deal this offseason, though none of Johnson's money is guaranteed for 2017.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:22:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught 3-of-5 targets for 32 yards in Week 15 against the Texans.

Johnson had his best game against the Texans earlier in the season, but wasn't able to repeat his success. His five targets were behind only Donte Moncrief. Even if Andrew Luck returns next week, Johnson will remain a low-upside WR4.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 05:00:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught 2-of-3 targets for 44 yards in Week 13 against the Steelers.

Johnson had one of his better games, but remained in nothing more than a complementary role. He's averaging under three targets the last four weeks. Johnson is a low-upside WR4.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 12:46:00 AM

Andre Johnson caught 1-of-3 targets for 22 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Bucs.

Even with Matt Hasselbeck starting, Johnson has continued to play a minor role. He was the No. 4 option behind T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Coby Fleener. Johnson has just eight targets over the last three weeks.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Falcons.

A pre-game report indicated Johnson would have a "bigger role" with fellow grandpa Matt Hasselbeck under center. That didn't happen. Aside from a Week 5 Thursday night game against the Titans (6-77-2), Johnson has been fantasy irrelevant as a Colt.
