Former Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans wideout Andre Johnson has been selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2024.

The news was revealed on Thursday night during the NFL Honors show. Johnson becomes the first Texans player to ever be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the 18th from the Oilers/Titans franchise.

The others selected to the Hall of Fame Class of 2024 include defensive ends Dwight Freeney and Julius Peppers, linebackers Randy Gradishar and Patrick Willis, wide receiver and returner Devin Hester and defensive tackle Steve McMichael.

Of course, Johnson’s tenure with the Titans was memorable for all the wrong reasons. He signed with the Titans at the age of 35 and clearly didn’t have anything left in the tank. Johnson lasted just eight games before retiring during the season.

But that certainly doesn’t erase the spectacular career he had in Houston, where he became one of the best players at his position in the sport, and one of the best players in Texans franchise history.

Johnson’s best Titans highlight came when he was on the opposing sideline. His 2010 fight with cornerback Cortland Finnegan remains one of the most legendary on-field spats the sport has ever seen.
