The Tennessee Titans will see receiver Andre Johnson retire today, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Johnson has played in eight games, with three starts, this season, his first in Tennessee. He has nine receptions for 85 yards with two touchdowns.

Johnson spent the 2015 season with the Indianapolis Colts following 12 seasons with the Houston Texans, who selected him with the third-overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. Johnson was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time First-Team All-Pro selection. He has 14,185 career receiving yards on 1,062 receptions, giving him a 13.4 yards per reception average. He has 70 career touchdowns.

Of course, this is not Miami Dolphins news, which is what this site typically covers. But, it is noteworthy because this is the second multiple-time Pro Bowl player to retire in the middle of the season, joining Dolphins running back Arian Foster. It is also interesting (and coincidental) that both of those players played the vast majority of their careers with the Texans.
