The Facts: Less than 24 hours after Titans coach Mike Mularkey was quoted as saying Johnson "still looks like he can play," Johnson is set to become a Titan. The former University of Miami star receiver will make the jump to his third AFC South team, signing with Tennessee after spending 12 seasons in Houston and one in Indianapolis, the Titans announced.
Diehards Line: After laughing off the Texans' expectation that he would only catch 40 passes in 2015, Johnson caught 41 balls for 503 yards and four touchdowns in his lone season in Indianapolis. Johnson showed signs that age was finally catching up to him, failing to separate from defensive backs and falling down the depth chart as the Colts' disappointing season progressed. It was a stark reminder that even the best athletes who seemingly don't age can just as quickly get knocked down by the calendar. Johnson was dumped by the Colts in the offseason and retirement seemed to be the next step for the 35-year-old, even after he promised he'd be playing somewhere in 2016. Now he'll get a chance to make good on his word with the Titans, who need someone to push second-year wideout Dorial Green-Beckham. Tennessee's receiving corps might also be a bit too crowded for a 35-year-old veteran, with Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and 31-year-old Harry Douglas joining Green-Beckham, but he'll at least get a shot.
