Andre Johnson a target monster for Texans | 04/23/2013 9:45 AM
NewsAndre Johnson was targeted on 58.1 percent of the Texans' passes to wideouts last season, the highest rate in the league.
ImpactEven at age 31, Johnson was dominant in 2012. Matt Schaub had a 70.9 completion percentage when throwing to his No. 1 receiver and 56.6 completion percentage when throwing elsewhere. With a rookie expected to fill the No. 2 wideout spot this season, Johnson is going to be a target monster once again. A second consecutive 100-catch season is well within reach.
Andre Johnson wants to play 5 more years | 04/20/2013 1:09 PM
NewsAndre Johnson said he wants to play five more seasons in the NFL.

ImpactJohnson, 32 in July, hasn't slowed down much despite being Houston's lone legitimate receiver for years. In 2012, he set a new single-season career-high in receiving yards (1,598) and fell three catches (112) short of setting a new career-best in catches. The only complaint is that Johnson has only found the end zone six times over his last 23 games. The 11-year veteran also made it clear that he hopes the Texans add a quality receiver to pair with him in the draft.
Andre Johnson triggers $3.3M escalator | 01/31/2013 12:41 AM
NewsAndre Johnson triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $6.2 million to $9.5 million.
ImpactJohnson finished the 2012 season with 112 grabs for 1,598 yards but just four touchdowns. His catch total was good for fourth-best in the NFL, while his yards total was second only behind Calvin Johnson. At 31 years old, Johnson is still going strong, but the Texans could definitely stand to get him some help at receiver this offseason. He has four years left on his current deal.
Texans owner wants team to add a playmaker | 01/20/2013 5:42 PM
NewsTexans owner Bob McNair says the offense needs another playmaker at wide receiver.
Impact"We need another playmaker (at receiver). We want more speed at receiver. Andre (Johnson) had a great year, but we can't expect him to carry the load for all the receivers," said McNair. The Texans have been trying to skate by with Kevin Walter as their No. 2 receiver for the past few seasons, but he brings nothing to the table in the passing game. Rookie DeVier Posey was coming on, but he tore his Achilles' last weekend and won't be much of a factor in 2013. Look for Houston to make it a point to add a threat on the outside.
Andre Johnson totals 95 yards in loss | 01/13/2013 10:08 PM
NewsAndre Johnson led the Texans with 95 yards on eight receptions in Sunday's Divisional round loss at New England.
ImpactHe added a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter after just missing his own touchdown. Covered primarily by Aqib Talib, Johnson's 11 targets were second only to Owen Daniels' 15. After averaging 100 yards per game during the regular season, Johnson averaged 78.5 in the postseason, largely due to Matt Schaub's regression. Still in his prime at age 31, Johnson is a top-10 fantasy receiver for 2013.
Andre Johnson goes for 62 yards in win | 01/05/2013 9:21 PM
NewsAndre Johnson caught four balls for 62 yards in the Texans' Wild Card Round win over the Bengals.
ImpactPlay-action exposed Cincinnati's zone coverage on the Texans' third possession and Johnson cleanly hauled in a 19-yard gain. He tacked on a 21-yard pickup in the third quarter, getting inside position on a double move against Pacman Jones. They were Johnson's two big plays on an otherwise quiet day. Johnson can expect to be shadowed by Aqib Talib in the Divisional Round.
