NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Titans wide receiver Andre Johnson is retiring Monday, according to WKRN sources.

Johnson joined the team in July and has played eight games for the Titans.

Going back to his days at the University of Miami, Andre was one of the most impressive wide receivers I’ve scouted,” Titans General Manager Jon Robinson said in a statement. “He had a professional approach to the game both on and off the field and in my opinion is one of the best to have played the game. I enjoyed getting to know and work with him in his time with our team. He certainly contributed to this team – making the game-winning catch at Detroit and his daily interaction with the young wide receivers. We wish him nothing but the best moving forward in whatever endeavors he chooses.”

He scored the game-winning touchdown in the team’s 16-15 win over Detroit and had nine catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns in eight games.

The 35-year-old spent his first 12 NFL seasons with the Houston Texans before playing last season with the Indianapolis Colts, where he had 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns.
