Indianapolis Colts release WR Andre Johnson after 1 season

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts have released wide receiver Andre Johnson after one season with the team.

Johnson signed with the Colts during a big free agency push by the organization a year ago with high hopes of making it to the Super Bowl. The seven-time Pro Bowler played in all 16 games last season in Indy and had 41 receptions for 503 years and four touchdowns - hardly in keeping with his numbers as a Texan.

In three games last year, Johnson had no receptions - the most since he joined the league as the third overall draft pick by Houston in 2003. The last time he went a game without a catch was in 2005, his third of 12 seasons with the Texans.

With Houston, Johnson was a two-time All-Pro despite being the Texan's only real receiving threat.
