Andre Johnson to sign one-day contract to retire a Texan

On Monday, the Texans announced that they're signing Johnson, 35, to a one-day contract so that he can retire as a Texan.

Johnson spent the first 12 years of his career with the Texans. This past season, he started three games for the Titans, and had just 85 yards with two touchdowns.

Johnson will be honored at a press conference on Wednesday, April 19 at NRG Stadium that will include Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer Cal McNair and Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Rick Smith.

Number 80 was drafted number three overall by the Texans in the 2003 National Football League draft and went on to play the first twelve seasons of his career with the Texans.

Performance Gains With Project Scorpio "Beyond Expectations" for Microsoft
This is the message that Microsoft will be taking once it reveals the console during E3 this June, according to the Xbox website . Considering Project Scorpio's beefy specs , we wouldn't be surprised to see the next Xbox to take on an equally beefy design.

Keep in mind, Johnson's best quarterback was Matt Schaub. For his career, Johnson's 1,062 receptions ranks 11th in National Football League history, and his 14,185 receiving yards is good enough for 10th all-time. In October, it was first reported that Johnson was done playing after his unsuccessful stint with the Titans.

He is the all-time leader in almost every receiving category for the Texans.

He will be missed.
