Today, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Andre Johnson announced his retirement from the NFL.

Johnson was struggling in his first year in Tennessee, as he only had nine catches for 85 yards and two TDs through eight games. While the 35-year-old didn’t go out with a bang, he was one of the most dominant receivers of his era.

Johnson made seven Pro Bowls over his 14-year-career, all of which came during his 12 years with the Houston Texans. It will be interesting to see if Johnson ends up in Canton, as his numbers stack up pretty favorably with the best to ever put on pads. Johnson ended his career with the 10th most receiving yards (14,185) and the ninth most receptions (1,062) in NFL history.

The former Miami Hurricane led the NFL in receptions in 2006 (103) and 2008 (115), and he led the league in receiving yards in 2008 (1,575) and 2009 (1,569). Johnson was also very consistent, posting seven seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards.
