There are few players in the NFL that have done for a team what Andre Johnson did for the Houston Texans. One of the most talented receivers to play in the past 15 seasons. Johnson terrorized defenses while supplying the Texans with electrifying catches.Now the Texans are repaying the favor. The Texans have announced Johnson is going to be the first member of the Ring of Honor.
The ceremony will take place on November 19, during the week 11 contest against the Arizona Cardinals. Johnson ended his career in Houston after signing a one-day contract in April. It is only fitting that his career came around full circle and he retired as a member of the Texans.
After 12 seasons in Houston, Johnson became a member of the Colts and Titans for once season each before his retirement. Even with the bouncing around in his final two seasons, he will always be remembered as a member of the Texans.

Very few wide receivers have accomplished what Johnson has. Johnson is 11th all time in receiving yards and receptions. With 70 career touchdown repetitions, Johnson checks in at 40th all time. There is a reason for the relatively low number of touchdown catches. This is due to playing for a run first team for the majority of his career.
Eventually there will be a day where Johnson is inducted to the NFL Hall of Fame. As a result of multiple Hall of Fame worth players ahead of him, it will take some time. Players such as Terrell Owens, Randy Moss and Issac Bruce. Until that day comes, the Texans Ring of Honor will do just fine.
