Texans cut Andre Johnson

The Houston Texans have cut veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson. They attempted to trade him, but were unable to do so. “After exhausting all options of a possible trade, we informed Andre Johnson that he would be released today,” Texans general manager Rick Smith said. “No player in the history of this franchise has represented the team, city and community in a more professional way. Andre is a Hall of Fame caliber player and we appreciate his years of service and contributions to our team.” Johnson is a seven-time Pro Bowl selection. In 12 seasons with the Texans, Johnson has caught 1,012 passes for 12,597 yards and 64 touchdowns. “I have so much respect for Andre Johnson and what he’s meant to this organization,” head coach Bill O’Brien said. “Andre carried himself as a true professional and did everything that we asked him to do. Andre will go down as one of the best receivers to every play this game. We are thankful for what he has done for our organization and wish him well on his future playing career.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
