Andre Johnson’s long tenure in Houston has come to an end.
Johnson, the veteran receiver who has spent his entire 12-year career with the Texans, has been released. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the cut became official this afternoon.
That comes as no surprise. The Texans had already given Johnson the opportunity to seek a trade, and Johnson had asked the Texans to give him his release. It was only a matter of time before their parting became official.
Now the 33-year-old Johnson becomes an unrestricted free agent. Johnson’s best years are behind him, but some team looking for veteran help at wide receiver will surely pick Johnson up.
