HOUSTON — Less than a week after Arian Foster announced his retirement from the game of football, another Texans favorite is saying farewell to the League.
Former Texan Andre Johnson notified his teammates Monday morning that he intends to retire from the NFL, numerous sources confirm. Johnson — who's currently with the Tennessee Titans —played in Houston for 12 seasons after being drafted No. 3 overall out of Miami in 2003.
"He'll go down as one of the best receivers to ever play the game," Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said at a press conference.
The 35-year-old wide receiver finishes his career with an impressive 1,062 regular-season receptions for 14,185 yards and 70 touchdowns.
