(Newser) – A little antidote to the usual headlines that NFL players make off the field: Houston Texan Andre Johnson dropped more than $17,000 at a Toys R Us for a dozen kids and their siblings in child protective services, reports Fox Sports. In fact, it's the seventh straight year he's paid for such a shopping spree. The total was a bit higher last year, notes Samer Kalaf at Deadspin, "but regardless of the total bill, it was still an awesome gesture by Johnson."

and people think player from the "U" are thugs. We had the third highest graduation rate in the nation and the lowest crime by students in the entire state. The University of Felon Gaytors were number one on the criminal list.

Andre has always been a class act, and a damn good receiver too.
