Titans Sign WR Andre Johnson

The Tennessee Titans entered training camp with lots of young, intriguing talent at the wide receiver position but decided they needed something more. After a tryout earlier this week, Tennessee has agreed to a deal with Andre Johnson, the news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

From a fantasy perspective, there is zero news here or at least there shouldn't be. The 35-year-old wide receiver wasn't impressive in his age-34 season in 2015 as he couldn't separate from coverage and turned in just 41 receptions for 503 yards and four touchdowns.

On a depth chart that has Kendall Wright, Tajae Sharpe and Dorial Green-Beckham, in addition to veterans Harry Douglas and Rishard Matthews, it's extremely difficult to see Johnson seeing even 40 targets this season. He should only serve as a veteran and teacher for the younger wide receivers and potentially a mentor to DGB. If Johnson sees significant snaps in 2016, something went terribly wrong for Tennessee.
