Houston Texans 309x146 Andre Johnson takes 12 kids on Toys R Us shopping spree

Houston Texans

Is that Andre Johnson or Santa Claus? The Texans WR was in a giving mood Tuesday morning as he hosted a Toys ‘R’ Us shopping spree for 12 area kids. The children, selected by Child Protective Services, were given 80 seconds to run around and grab whatever they could.

“You hear a minute and twenty seconds and you don’t think that’s a long time, but you’d be surprised by what these kids can put into their buckets,” Johnson said after his foundation picked up the $19,521 tab on a receipt about a mile long.

“I think it’s probably the best one because you get to see the kids really enjoy it,” Johnson said. “That’s what this season is about. It’s something I look forward to. The kids are happy, they get what they want for Christmas, and that’s all that matters. “

You know how they say wide receivers are divas and malcontents (yes, we’re talking about you Titus Young). Well, Johnson’s like the antithesis. Do we have an Andre Johnson good guy meme yet?
