Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Andre Johnson joined SportsRadio 610 on In The Loop with John Lopez and Cody Stoots on Wednesday from Radio Row in Houston and the former Houston Texans wide receiver says he’d love to have a future with the team that drafted him.
“I would like to stay around the game, but I don’t want to coach,” Johnson said about working with the Texans now that his career is over.”Maybe once the guys get into OTAs going out, helping receivers out.”
The Texans just hired another top wide receiver, this one as a coach, to help the team’s offense, Wes Welker. Johnson retired mid-season 2016 after playing eight games with the Tennessee Titans. Johnson is the Texans leader in all major recieving categories.
Because Johnson is the greatest Texans player of all time there has been talk, now that his career is over talk of how to honor him at NRG stadium has started.
“It would mean a lot,” Johnson said of being honored by the Texans. “I couldn’t even imagine. That’s big to have your number retired by an organization. It would be a very special feeling.”
There has not been any word from Johnson or the Texans but it would be likely that the Texans honor him in some way this season.
