    Kudos Dre..

    He's going to sign a 1 day contract. Hopefully we retire his jersey, he deserves it.

    I love this. I was sad to see him go to the Colts and the Titans. Thank you for all of your hard work here Andre.

    It's a damn shame we couldn't supply him with better QB play.. in his prime (especially before they snipped his hamstring) that guy was a athlete. He was special.

    AJ and Watt, can't say we haven't have a few hall of famers to enjoy during their peak.

    I'm glad they're doing this. I'd retire his jersey on the home opener.

    I can't believe the Lions took Charles Rogers over Andre Johnson.. Rogers only started 9 games and played in 15.. my friend from Detroit still gives me **** over that.

    Atleast we dodged that bullet.

    Would of been better if he had just accepted his time was over and retired a Texans player rather than take have to take the NFL walk of shame back for one day retirement special.

    How is that a walk of shame? Stupid post.

    The average NFL career is a little over 3 years.. Johnny football, Vince Young took the walk of shame.. how many players were good enough to be handed that 1 day contract? That's not a walk of shame, it's a honor.

    Ouch it hurts because it's true.

    I guess we'll be saying this about every special player until we find that special player behind center lol (I laugh so I don't cry)

    It's symbolic, we all get that. But if it makes AJ feel a true Battle Blue Texan as he turns the page, not to mention a memory he will always cherish, good for all involved.

    Being a scrub on teams your heart isn't with isn't a good way to round out a career.

    Hakeem on the Raptors? Was that an honor too?

    AJ was coming off an 85 catch, 900 yard season. No reason for him to think his time was over.

    That's sports, but looking back on it.. do people really think of Hakeem a raptor? Do people remember Johnny Unitas a Charger.. no Hakeem will forever be a Rocket, Johnny a Colt, and Johnson a Texan.

    Not every player gets to have the perfect ending..that's sports, but they can come home. Andre is home.

    Let him retire a Texan, but the 80 is still active

    Not saying anything, just saying.....
