Andre Johnson signs new deal with TexansThe star wide receiver Andre Johnson received a contract extension for two more years and $ 38.5 million from the Houston Texans with whom will be linked at least until the 2016 betting season.

Adding the five-year, $ 35 million yet to be fulfilled in his original contract, the entire agreement for the services of receptor four-time Pro Bowl for the following seven seasons in Houston will pay $ 73.5 million, ie an average of $ 10.5 million per betting season.

The 29-year-old Johnson had five years left on his old contract, but told McNair and Smith earlier this year that he wanted a new deal. The soft-spoken receiver caused a stir when he skipped three voluntary workouts in May and brought his desire for a new contract to light.

But his absence, and the media attention it drew, made Johnson uneasy and he arrived on time to training camp, hoping that the ongoing negotiations wouldn't become a distraction.

"It is important to us that Andre has a home and that is with the Texans," said Bob McNair, owner of the team.

"It's a future Hall of Fame and is probably our first element of the Hall of Fame. We wanted to ensure that the between and Texan, to play his entire career as a Texan and we hope to withdraw as a Texan. "

"That they (the Texans) have done something like this for me and my family, I have no words to describe it," Johnson said. "I always wanted to play my whole career for one team and play the rest of my career for the Houston Texans is a tremendous honor."

In seven seasons with the Texans, Johnson accumulated 587 receptions for 7.948 yards and 42 touchdowns. In 2008, he was leading the NFL in receptions (115) and receiving yards (1,575).
