Andre Johnson added to Ryan Fitzpatrick's "list"

Posted Mar 23, 2014

New Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has played with a slew of impressive wide receivers, and now he'll get to throw to Andre Johnson.

It's an impressive list.

Isaac Bruce is on it.

So is Torry Holt.

You can't forget about Chad Johnson in 2007. And for that matter, Chad Ochocinco in 2008.

Scrawl T.J. Houshmandzadeh on there, make room for Terrell Owens and Stevie Johnson, and make sure Kendall Wright and Nate Washington appear as well.

Now, Andre Johnson's been added.

Since his rookie year with the Rams in 2005, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown passes to some excellent wide receivers. He was effusive in his praise of former teammates, and excited to join forces with the greatest pass-catcher in Houston pro football history.

"He's one of the best," Fitzpatrick said. "And he's been one of the best for a long time. It's fun for me. From afar, I've always admired Andre and the way he goes about his business."

Last season in Tennessee, was on the Titans roster with former Texans in wide receiver Kevin Walter and safety Bernard Pollard. From Walter, he said he heard countless stories about Johnson's dedication and unselfishness.

"He just seems like a very impressive guy," Fitzpatrick said. "The biggest thing is, you see it in his production every year. His consistency is unbelievable in what he's been able to do."
