Andre Johnson is gone fishin'. The former Houston Texans wide receiver announced his retirement on Monday. The future hall-of-famer is calling it quits after 14 season in the NFL. This comes after another former Texan, Arian Foster, also announced his retirement. Foster announced his plans just under a week ago. The 35-year-old athlete played for the Indianapolis Colts last season after 12 successful runs with the Texans. Johnson has etched himself in Texans history. According to CBS Sports, his career highlights include"1,062 regular-season catches for 14,185 years and 70 touchdowns." He was less stellar as a Colt and a Tennessee Titan.

Johnson was put on the back burner this season as a Titan. The athlete finishes off withnine catches for 85 yards and two scores. I guess he knows when it's time to put away the cleats.

Tennessee Titians general manager, Jon Robinson, released a statement posted on CBSSports.com and said,"I enjoyed getting to know and work with him in his time with our team. He certainly contributed to this team -- making the game-winning catch at Detroit and his daily interaction with the young wide receivers. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward in whatever endeavors he chooses."

Several other NFL officials took to Twitter to congratulate Johnson on his decorative career.

Sports columnist for the Houston Chronicle, Brian T. Smith Tweeted Johnson's number 80 should be the first number the Texans retire.
