Houston Texans’ All-Time Receiving TD Leaders

The Houston Texans were an expansion franchise in 2002, and since then have endured a couple of bad years, followed by several mediocre ones, and have yet to make the postseason as I write this in 2011. But the Texans have had great QB play and have one of the game’s best receivers in Andre Johnson. Here is a short list of the Texans’ all-time leaders to date in receiving touchdowns:

Andre Johnson (50)—Andre Johnson has been with the Texans his entire career so far, since 2003. He ranks first in team history with 50 touchdown receptions, and has made the Pro Bowl five times, twice as a first team All Pro. Johnson had a career high 9 TD catches in 2009, but his best overall season so far was 2008. That year, Johnson had career highs in receptions (115) and receiving yards (1575)—both of which led the NFL—with 8 touchdowns.

Kevin Walter (19)—Kevin Walter has been with the Texans since 2006, and he ranks second in franchise history with 19 touchdown catches. Walter’s best season so far was 2008, when he caught 60 passes for career best numbers in receiving yards (899) and touchdown receptions (8).

Corey Bradford (18)—Corey Bradford played in Houston from 2002 to 2005, and he ranks third in Texans’ history with 18 TD catches. Bradford had his best season in 2002, the Texans’ inaugural season, when he had career highs in catches (45), receiving yards (697), and receiving touchdowns (6).

Owen Daniels (17)—Tight end Owen Daniels has played for the Texans since 2006, and ranks fourth in franchise history with 17 TD receptions. Daniels had a career high 5 touchdown catches twice, in 2006 and 2009; but his best overall season was 2008, when he made the Pro Bowl. That year, Daniels had just 2 touchdown receptions, but had career highs in catches (70), and receiving yards (862).
