Houston Texans fans may not have much to be thankful for on the field in 2022, but they could have a few special moments next calendar year.

One of them could be their very first, authentic Pro Football Hall of Famer. Inaugural Texans Ring of Honor member Andre Johnson was named one of 28 modern-era semifinalist for the class of 2023.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame revealed 28 modern-era semifinalists for the Class of 2023 on Tuesday.

Johnson, the Texans’ No. 3 overall pick from the 2003 NFL draft, earned two first-team All-Pros and seven Pro Bowls during his 12-year career with Houston. Johnson played a season with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015 and then eight games with the Tennessee Titans in 2016.
