The greatest player in Houston Texans history will officially retire in steel blue, battle red, and liberty white on Wednesday afternoon.

Andre Johnson spent twelve seasons in Houston and was one of the most prolific wide receivers of his pass-happy generation. Without question, ‘Dre was the lone light on this team during many dark, dark years for the Texans in the mid-2000s. Thanking him with a proper retirement and celebration at his true football home is the least this organization could do for him.

I would expect a statue in his likeness to be erected outside NRG Stadium any day now. He certainly earned it.
