Andre Johnson will sign a one-day contract to retire as a Houston Texan.
Johnson formally retired last October. Now 35 years old, Johnson spent his first 12 NFL seasons in Houston before one-year stints with Indy and Tennessee exposed him as over the hill. Johnson made seven Pro Bowls and topped 1,000 yards receiving seven times, twice leading the NFL in receiving yards (2008, 2009). In an increasingly pass-heavy league, the high-volume influx of great wide receivers into Hall of Fame candidacy will likely prevent Johnson from coming anywhere near first-ballot consideration, but he has a solid longer-term Canton case. He was a top-five NFL receiver for most of his career and had a legitimate argument as the best receiver in the game in the late 2000s. Apr 17 - 4:10 PM

Titans WR Andre Johnson has retired after 14 seasons in the NFL.

Former Texans great Arian Foster decided to hang 'em up last Monday, and Johnson followed suit this week. Although he spent the final two seasons of his career with division foes, Johnson will always be remembered as a Texan. Houston drafted Johnson with the third overall pick in 2003, and he repaid the favor with 1,012 catches for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns in 12 seasons. He finishes his career ninth in receptions, 10th in receiving yards, and 40th in touchdowns. Clearly one of the best receivers of his generation, Johnson is likely headed to the Hall of Fame.

Andre Johnson was held catch-less in the Titans' Week 7 loss to the Colts.

He has now been held catch-less in each of the Titans' last two games.

Andre Johnson tallied two catches for 13 yards and a touchdown on four targets Sunday in the Texans' Week 5 win over the Dolphins.

Johnson beat Byron Maxwell for a five-yard touchdown in the first half but was otherwise held in check. The touchdown was his second of the season. The veteran has totaled 85 receiving yards across five games this year. That’s not fantasy-worthy.

Andre Johnson absorbed three-of-five targets for 33 yards Sunday in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Texans.

Two of his three catches came on Tennessee's opening drive of the second half including a 20-yarder that set up a first-and-goal at the 10-yard-line. Johnson dusted Quintin Demps on the play. Johnson continues to see targets (for some reason) but it's hard to endorse him as a fantasy option with Marcus Mariota struggling. He'll be off the fantasy map next time out against the Dolphins.

Andre Johnson failed to catch any of his three targets in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

Johnson had an 18-yard touchdown pulled off the board on an offensive pass interference penalty on the Titans' final drive of the game. Tennessee was trailing by a touchdown at the time. On the next play, Marcus Mariota missed Harry Douglas on fourth down to end the game. Johnson isn't a fantasy option.

Andre Johnson caught 1-of-2 targets for a nine-yard touchdown in the Titans' Week 2 win over the Lions.

Johnson showed he still has some NFL value with a tough catch in traffic for his nine-yard score. He continues to eat into Rishard Matthews' opportunities. Johnson should not be owned in any fantasy leagues entering Week 3 versus Oakland.

Andre Johnson caught 3-of-7 targets for 30 yards Week 1 against the Vikings.

Johnson was tied for second on the team in targets, but he predictably did little with the looks. He also dropped what should have been a touchdown late in the first half. It looks like Johnson will have a role, but he is not worth rostering in standard-sized leagues.

Andre Johnson made the Titans' initial 53-man roster.

This is not a surprise considering where Johnson played in the third preseason game, but it is worth noting after he was given zero guaranteed money on a two-year deal at the start of training camp. The veteran is still behind Rishard Matthews and rookie Tajae Sharpe, but he should have a role. Even so, he is not worth a look in any format.

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.

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.
