INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts released wide receiver Andre Johnson this week – a disappointing end to what was looked at as one of the top offseason pickups by any team in the NFL last year.

The Colts signed Johnson in March 2015 as a free agent.

Johnson played in all 16 Colts games during the 2015 season, but only managed 503 yards and four touchdowns.

Johnson is a seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time NFL receiving yards later. The Texans named him their team MVP five times.
