Johnson, 35, and leaders of the Texans will speak on his career at a news conference Wednesday in Houston.
The Houston Texans announced they would sign former wide receiver Andre Johnson to a one-day contract, allowing him to retire as a member of the team.
Johnson was the third overall pick in the 2003 National Football League draft and certainly lived up to the hype that followed him coming out of the University of Miami. He went on to catch 1,012 passes for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns in 12 years with the team.

Tillerson's mission sees the Trump administration taking on the traditional US role as spokesman for a unified Western position. Also Wednesday, Lavrov said the allegations of Russian meddling in the USA presidential election haven't been proven.
We wish Johnson the best of luck as he begins a new chapter in his life.
Johnson signed with the Indianapolis Colts following the 2014 season, and spent eight games with the Tennessee Titans in 2016. According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans are planning a future ceremony to honor Johnson. In both years, he led the National Football League in receiving yards.
Johnson's 70 career receiving touchdowns place him in a tie for 40th in National Football League history, while his 1,062 receptions and 14,185 yards are 11th in both categories.
