Texans Extend WR Andre Johnson Deal

By on August 6, 2010 in

The Houston Texans just recently extended All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson’s contract that will keep him signed under the organization through the 2016 season. The additional two-year $23 million deal guarantees $13 million and provides incentives where he could earn up to $38.5 million. The seven-year veteran gained a total of 1,569 yards from 101 receptions last season with the Texans, becoming the second wide-out since Jerry Rice to lead the league in receiving yards in consecutive seasons.

Johnson was very excited to complete negotiations and shift his attention to the upcoming regular season. “I can’t say that the offseason wasn’t a little bit frustrating, just sitting at home and thinking about contract things,” he said. “Once I came in, I put it behind me and I let my agent handle it. As you can see, it worked out, so I’m very excited about it…I always said I wanted to play for one team, and to be able to play for the Houston Texans for the rest of my career, it’s a tremendous honor.”

In 2009 the Texans were able to produce their first winning season since joining the NFL in 2002. They finished in second behind the Indianapolis Colts and conceded the wild card on a tie-breaker to the New York Jets. Houston will kick off their 2010 campaign at home against the Colts.
