There’s no doubt that Andre Johnson deserves to be inducted into the Houston Texans’ ring of honor.

It’s really interesting to me that not one player has been inducted into the Houston Texans’ ring of honor yet.

The good news is that is about to change.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Tuesday that the Texans will induct future Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Johnson into their ring of honor this coming season.

Johnson was selected with the third overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami and never disappointed after racking up 1.062 receptions, 14,185 yards and 70 touchdowns during his career.  He also owns about every receiving record in Texans’ history.

The 36 year-old Johnson just retired from the NFL as a member of the Texans this offseason after spending a portion of last season with the Tennessee Titans.

The Texans’ game against the Cardinals on at 1 p.m. on November 19th is when everything will go down. I’m surprised Houston didn’t want to conduct the ceremony during a prime time. It seems like that’s when a lot of teams typically honor their past players.

I know the Texans have only been in existence for 17 years, but it kind of surprises me that they don’t have anyone else in their ring of honor.

I could certainly see players like cornerback Johnathan Joseph and left tackle Duane Brown being inducted into their ring of honor once their careers are over.

Comment below and tell us who else should be in the Texans’ ring of honor.
