Titans Sign Veteran WR Andre Johnson To Two-Year Deal

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Tennessee Titans are signing veteran WR Andre Johnson to a contract on Friday.

  • Schefter adds that Johnson receives a two-year contract from the Titans.
  • Johnson is still owed $2.5 million from the Colts for the 2016 season, but the deal includes offset language, so the Titans will pick up a portion of this figure.

The Titans brought Johnson in for a visit a few days ago, so he was clearly on their radar. Tennessee becomes the third AFC South team Johnson has played for his in his career.

However, he was unfortunately cut loose in a move that freed up $5 million in available cap space for the Colts.
