Former Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will sign a one-day contract Wednesday so he can officially retire as a Texan, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Johnson, a first-round pick in 2003, played his first 12 years with the Texans before leaving after the 2014 season and signing with Indianapolis. He played most of last season with Tennessee.
Johnson will participate in a ceremony Wednesday to commemorate the occasion.
At some point, the Texans will honor Johnson. They don’t have a ring of honor, and they haven’t retired a player’s jersey or number. Johnson will be the first once they decide how they want to honor him.
Johnson is the Texans’ career leader in receptions (1,012), yards (13,597), touchdowns (64) and 100-yard games (51).
