“I would like to take this time to thank my family, friends, fans, and teammates who have given their continued support throughout my 10 year career,” Johnson said. “My time in the NFL has given me so many opportunities and memories. After a great deal of thought and consideration, I have decided to close this chapter of my life and look forward to the new possibilities that have been afforded to me.

“I would like to thank the Tennessee Titans, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals organizations, who provided me with an opportunity to play the game I love and to be a part of their amazing communities. Playing in the NFL was a honor and I am humbled and blessed to have been able to be a part of the league for 10 years.”
