Andre Johnson was born July 11, 1981.

Johnson was a crucial piece of the Miami Hurricanes dynasty that produced an absurd amount of NFL players. The standout receiver helped the Hurricanes win the national championship in the 2002 Rose Bowl against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

The Houston Texans selected Johnson third overall in the 2003 NFL draft. With quarterbacks David Carr and Tony Banks, he grabbed 66 receptions for 976 receiving yards in his rookie season.

Johnson had his breakout season in 2004, recording 79 catches for 1,142 yards and six touchdowns, and was selected to his first Pro Bowl.

In 2010, he became the only player in NFL history to have 60 or more receptions in each of his first eight seasons. Additionally, Johnson has the most games with 10-plus receptions (22), and the most seasons with both 100-plus catches and 1,400-plus receiving yards (four).

Unfortunately for Johnson, he spent most of his career on bad teams. It took nearly a decade for his Texans to reach the playoffs. In four postseason appearances, he had 25 catches for 358 yards and a touchdown.

In his 12 seasons with the Texans, he had 1,012 receptions for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns.

He will play the 2015 season with Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.
