Titans WR Andre Johnson retiring after 14 seasons
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Andre Johnson is retiring from the NFL after 14 seasons, the team announced on Monday.
“Going back to his days at the University of Miami, Andre was one of the most impressive wide receivers I’ve scouted,” general manager Jon Robinson said in a statement. “He had a professional approach to the game both on and off the field and in my opinion is one of the best to have played the game. I enjoyed getting to know and work with him in his time with our team. He certainly contributed to this team – making the game-winning catch at Detroit and his daily interaction with the young wide receivers. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward in whatever endeavors he chooses.”
Johnson, 35, has started three of eight games this season and recorded nine passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns.
Johnson spent the first 12 seasons of his career with the Houston Texans, where he made the Pro Bowl seven times. He played one season with the Indianapolis Colts and had 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns before signing with the Titans for 2016.
Johnson is ranked ninth on the NFL career receptions list with 1,062 catches. He also has 14,185 yards and 70 touchdowns in his career.
