Andre Johnson’s new contract with the Texans will make him the highest-paid receiver in the NFL.
Johnson received a two-year extension worth $23.5 million, with a maximum value of $38.5 million. He gets $13 million guaranteed. His deal is worth a max value of seven years and $73.5 million — an average of $10.5 million a year.
The contract also has incentive bonuses and built-in escalators that can make it even more valuable.
"This will make him a Texan for life," Texans general manager Rick Smith said.
