Being the newest team in the NFL, the Houston Texans have yet to officially retire any numbers.
However, since J.J. Watt has now left the franchise, it’s time they look at commemorating their greatest players to date.
In the two decades since their inception, the Texans have been lucky enough to have had some exceptional players.
Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, Arian Foster, Duane Brown, Brock Osweiler (Sorry, cheap shot), and so on. That being said, each decade has easily been highlighted by one player.
Meanwhile, some local fans of the Texans are calling for Andre Johnson’s jersey number to be retired.
Who’s Andre Johnson?
Andre Johnson may not be the biggest fan of the Texans at this time, but the fact is he was easily the best player on that roster throughout the 2000s.
A player with a rare combination of size, speed, and strength, Johnson was the first Texan to become a multiple-time All-Pro/Pro Bowler, and still holds the franchise record for Pro Bowl seasons.
Ultimately, Johnson helped put the team on the map.
