Johnson has been released by the Houston Texans, a person with knowledge of the move tells The Associated Press. The person spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made by the team.

Johnson, the longest-tenured Texan, just completed his 12th season. He was a first-round draft pick in 2003, joining the expansion team in its second season. The 33-year-old Johnson had 85 catches for 936 yards last season, but the Texans were beginning to see DeAndre Hopkins as their top receiving threat. Johnson is a seven-time Pro Bowler with seven 1,000-yard receiving seasons and has 1,012 receptions with 13,597 yards receiving in his career.
