Andre Johnson will retire with the Houston Texans now that his NFL career is over.

There’s no doubt that Andre Johnson will go down as the greatest wide receiver in Texans’ history as well as one of the best in NFL history.

Johnson never had the proper sending offer after leaving the Texans in 2015 as a free agent.

The Texans have announced that the 35 year-old Johnson will sign a one day contract with the club on Wednesday as he officially retires from the NFL.

Johnson amassed 1,062 receptions, 14,185 yards and 70 touchdowns during his 13 year NFL career.  Those are some Hall of Fame numbers.

Johnson was the third overall pick in the 2003 NFL draft and certainly lived up to the hype that followed him coming out of the University of Miami.

Johnson finished out his career with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015 and then the Tennessee Titans in 2016.

Johnson only started four games last season and caught nine receptions for 85 yards and two touchdowns for the Titans.

It’s going to be interesting to see what Johnson has planned now that his career is over.

Many former NFL players either start their own businesses, get into coaching, television or even radio.

We wish Johnson the best of luck as he begins a new chapter in his life.
