Johnson, 36, spent 12 seasons with the Texans and one season each with the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans. The 7-time Pro Bowler is the team’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. He signed a one-day contract in April to officially retire as a Texan.

Johnson will be honored during halftime of Houston’s game against the Arizona Cardinals where he will be inducted as the first member of the franchise’s “Ring of Honor.”
