NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Wide receiver Andre Johnson says his mother taught him to exit the same way he entered.That explains why he quietly retired midway through his 14th NFL season.Johnson posted a statement Wednesday on Instagram?two days after telling Tennessee Titans coach Mike Mularkey he was retiring.I was taught, by an amazing woman, that how you enter is the same way you should exit, Johnson wrote in the Instagram post that he also shared on Twitter. Mom, I love you for all that you gave and sacrificed.Johnson thanked everyone for their texts, post and calls over the past few days. He also thanked an uncle; his agent, Kennard McGuire; former Houston general manager Charley Casserly, who drafted him No. 3 overall in 2003 out of Miami; the city of Miami; and both the Indianapolis Colts and Titans for allowing me to continue a dream.He also thanked the McNair family and the Houston organization for 12 years of support.To the city of Houston and the most incredible fans on earth, I simply end this journey by saying, Houston is my destination. I am coming home and I will always be a Texan, Johnson wrote.Johnson remains the leading receiver in Texans history with 1,012 catches for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns. He joined the Titans this season after spending 2015-16 with another AFC South team, the Colts.The seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver told Mularkey of his plans to retire Monday without commenting publicly until the Instagram post. He caught only nine passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns this season, including the game-winning TD in Week 2 in Detroit.Johnson retired as one of the NFLs best receivers. He ranks ninth with 1,062 catches and 10th with 14,185 yards receiving, and also caught 70 touchdowns. Johnson led the NFL in catches in 2006 (103) and in 2008 (115).

Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-William-Jackson-Jersey/ . Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Adam-Jones-Jersey/ . Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April.

"It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium.The Washington Redskins have signed Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed to a five-year contract extension. The deal, which is reportedly worth $50m with $22m guaranteed, will keep the 25-year-old Reed in Washington through 2021.Reed, who was the teams third-round pick out of Florida in 2013, had his best season last year, with career highs in catches (87), yards (952) and touchdowns (11). He also had a big game in Washingtons post-season loss to Green Bay, catching nine passes for 120 yards and a touchdown.Despite his breakout season in 2015, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden believes Reed is only beginning to scratch the surface of his vast potential.He can get a lot better, thats the scary part, Gruden said. He is a very natural gifted route running tight end with natural hands and great ability to run after the catch. Reed (No 86) caught nine passes for 120 yards against Green Bay in the pplay-offs As he gets bigger, more confident, bigger frame as he works out with [strength and conditioning] coach [Mike] Clark in the weight room, hes going to be more of an impact in the running game which is only going to help him also in the passing game with the play actions.ddddddddddddSo hes going to keep getting better and better, got to keep in healthy, hes got to keep working and great things will be on the horizon for Jordan.The biggest concern to date with Reed is his ability stay healthy. He missed Week 5 and 6 of the 2015 season with a concussion and he has played in just 34 of 48 possible regular-season games to date in his career.Reed becomes the third tight end to sign a big-money extension in the NFL this off-season, following Zach Ertz of the Philadelphia Eagles (five years, $42.5m) and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs (five years, $46.8m).
