According to ESPN,

Wide receiver Andre Johnson has told the Tennessee Titans he is retiring, the team announced Monday.

“Going back to his days at the University of Miami, Andre was one of the most impressive wide receivers I’ve scouted,” Titans 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.”

A seven-time Pro Bowler with the Houston Texans, Johnson had been serving as a backup on the Titans’ depth chart this season. He had nine receptions for 85 yards and two touchdowns in 2016 but hadn’t made a catch since Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins.

Johnson made his legacy in Houston, where he is by far the franchise leader in receiving yards, receptions and receiving touchdowns.

The 35-year-old steps away from football 10th overall in career receiving yards (14,185) and ninth in career receptions (1,062).

Mane, hol up!  He had a great career.  Enjoy life, Dre!
