Andre Johnson immortalized in Texans Ring of Honor

Posted Nov 19, 2017

During halftime against the Arizona Cardinals, Andre Johnson was inducted into the Texans Ring of Honor as the inaugural member.

On the day the city of Houston officially declared as Andre Lamont Johnson Day, the Texans all-time leading receiver was immortalized at NRG Stadium.

During halftime against the Arizona Cardinals, Andre Johnson was inducted into the Texans Ring of Honor as the inaugural member. After a week of celebrations leading up to the ceremony, the Texans unveiled Johnson’s banner from the rafters of NRG Stadium.

Johnson, a first-round draft pick in 2003, was a two-time All-Pro and earned seven Pro Bowl honors during his career as a Texan. However, Johnson never imagined he would also one day be the first to be inducted into the Texans Ring of Honor.

“To be honest I never really thought about it,” Johnson said. “I just wanted to come here and play. Just do things the right way. I just wanted to be a good football player. I never said I wanted to go up in the Ring of Honor, never thought about it. I just wanted to come here and just do things the right way and just be a good football player.”

In his 12 seasons with Houston (2003-14), Johnson became the Texans all-time leading receiver with 1,012 receptions for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns. Johnson reached many career milestones as a Texan, including becoming the second-fastest player to reach both 13,000 yards and 1,000 receptions, doing so in 160 and 168 games, respectively.
