Andre Johnson will retire as a Texan

After a year with the Colts and a part of another with the Titans, receiver Andre Johnson has returned home, still without ever leaving the AFC South.

The Texans have announced that Johnson will be signing a one-day contract to retire with the team. The ceremony will occur on Wednesday.

Johnson, a top-five pick in 2003, played for the Texans through 2014. And he actually has a better case for Canton than another receiver named Johnson who had a little more sizzle and a better nickname during that same era.

    I actually forgot where else he played.

    His HOF credentials are strengthened by his beat-down of Cortland Finnegan.

    He should have retired as a Jaguar to complete the cycle.

    The greatest Houston Texan yet.
    An absolute beast in his prime.
    Enjoy your retirement, very well deserved.

    Always with a shot at Calvin Johnson.

    They should put a statue of him in mid-swing on Cortland Finnegan outside the stadium.

    Calvin? I thought he was referring to Chad.

    Kind of sad. I know he made his money and he gets to walk away healthy but he never played for a decent qb. He could have been HOF. Unfortunately he played in Houston – where wr’s careers go to die.

    Optimus Prime is definitely a better nickname than Ochocinco.
