    One last chance for redemption.

    My bold(ish) prediction is that you'll see Andre Johnson wearing a Broncos jersey this year.

    Did he actually take a pay cut?

    I wish him the best as I've liked him forever, but I don't think he has it left in him anymore. Not for a full season.

    This. His ship has sailed. At 39 years old, I dont think he can maintain throughout the season. Buy the time the season starts, he will be 39, and he is starting to show his age. If they would pick up someone like Johnson, that would give him an excellent receiving core, but there is still only so much he can do. He seems to regularly get hurt towards the end of the year....assumably just his body giving out after so many consecutive weeks.

    He's just hanging around to break all of Favre's records.

    Andre Johnson had a great career, but he's a huge step down from Thomas.

    Oh for sure (Both Thomas'). I think they may shop the TE (Julius), but they franchised Demaryius. I see Johnson as being a WR3, after Thomas and Welker. I also see Sanders' stepping up in his role as well.

    Didn't know they tagged Demaryius. That would be a sick rece corps.

    I don't get the point of playing another year. Oh well, I like him, these guys no longer know how to go out on top.

    I totally agree with you. I like the guy...hard not to, but I dont see this year being any different for him. In terms of health, or resources. If they do lose Julius Thomas, seems his arsenal will be severely limited.

    I assume he is holding on hope that he can finally make it, but every year is becoming more of a stretch. He's 39, his injury problems are no longer specific to an event, but just wear and tear throughout the season; they are not going away.

    Maybe CJ Anderson can stay healthy and Peyton won't have to rely on a carousel of busted rb's for 2/3 of the season

    Yea, that would be nice for him. He had nothing to work with last year.
