Andre Johnson still hoping for call from NFL team
After a disappointing season with the Indianapolis Colts, Andre Johnson has found himself unemployed. Two or three years ago, the soon-to-be 35-year-old was one of the best receivers in football. Has he really lost it all that quickly?
As Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle notes, Johnson is still working out in hopes of getting a call from an NFL team. He has been training every day, which we saw earlier this week when Rischad Whitfield of Blitz Football shared a short clip on Twitter:

Johnson signed a three-year deal worth $21 million with the Colts last offseason, but he made nothing of the opportunity. He caught just 41 passes for 503 yards and four touchdowns. Now, a little more than a year after some teams were rumored to be willing to pay the seven-time Pro Bowler $10 million per season, Johnson is hoping he is not forced into retirement. He made his intentions for the upcoming season quite clear back in March.
Even at his age, there has to be a team that is willing to give Johnson a shot to earn a roster spot in training camp.
