HOUSTON - This week, the Texans and the city of Houston are paying tribute to a player who was the greatest of all time long before it was a hashtag.
Andre Johnson is getting a day named in his honor, a retirement party and the inaugural Ring of Honor induction at NRG Stadium during Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
And we're calling it right now - Johnson will one day become the first player who wore a Texans jersey to be in the Hall of Fame. He has had a HOF career. The proof is all in the numbers.
Johnson was a Houston Texan for 12 years; and during that time, he became (and still is) the franchise's all-time leader in several categories.
100-YARD RECEIVING GAMES
If those numbers don't impress you, there are more. Johnson kept adding to his stats when he parted ways with the Texans in 2015. He went on to play with the Colts and Titans.
CAREER RECEIVING YARDS
Johnson may have played briefly with the Colts and Titans, but he is forever a Texan. In April, he signed a one-day contract with Houston so he could retire a Texan. Fans of the Houston Texans wouldn't have it any other way. #ThankYouAndre
