Andre Johnson has had a career.

Andre Johnson is reportedly going to retire today. The 35-year-old wide receiver, a member of the Tennessee Titans this season, has caught nine passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns in 2016. He's been coming off the bench in Tennessee.

Both ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport have reported the news.

Johnson was taken by the Houston Texans with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft out of Miami, where he was a national champion and the MVP of the Rose Bowl.

With the Texans, he was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a two-time first-team All-Pro and a two-time second-team All-Pro. Twice, in 2008 and 2009, he led the NFL in receiving yards.

The Miami, Fla. native will end his career with 1,062 catches for 14,185 yards and 70 touchdowns.

Johnson will, in all certainty, end up at the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio at some point.
