Report: Colts to release WR Andre Johnson
Sunday March 6th, 2016

Thirteen-year veteran Andre Johnson isn’t ready to retire just yet.

The former Texans and Colts wide receiver told on Saturday that he expects to play in the NFL next season after he was released by Indianapolis on Friday.

“I am playing, there’s no question about that,” Johnson said. “I know I can still play this game ... people read into the stories too much. I’m not discouraged about what happened this past season, I’m just waiting for an opportunity.

“It’s about winning a championship. Somewhere I can help a team accomplish the ultimate goal.”

Johnson joined the Colts in free agency last off-season after spending the first 12 years of his career in Houston. He caught 41 passes for 503 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games.

The 34-year-old had signed a three-year, $21 million contract with the Colts in March.
