Colts Receiver Andre Johnson Pondering Retirement After 13 NFL Seasons

Andre Johnson, one of the best receivers of the last decade, might not play another game in the NFL.

The 34-year-old wideout, who joined the Indianapolis Colts last season on a three-year contract, is “pondering” retirement, per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport’s tweet also says Johnson “has played his last down in Indy.” This makes sense, given the limited success he enjoyed for the Colts last season.

Johnson caught just 41 passes for 503 yards and three touchdowns. In his defense, franchise quarterback Andrew Luck missed the majority of the season with injuries. Still, Johnson was expected to make a stronger impact than he did.

If Johnson decides to retire, he probably won’t have to wait too long before joining the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He’s totaled 1,053 receptions, 14,100 yards and 68 touchdowns in 13 seasons since being drafted third overall in 2003 by the Houston Texans.
