    Add Panthers wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson to the list of stars who are considering hanging up the cleats.

    Johnson told FOX NFL Sunday and FOXSports.com if Panthers offensive coordinator Dan Henning does not return, he will likely retire.
    Even if the coach -- who worked previously with Johnson while both were with the New York Jets in the late 1990s -- does return, Johnson is still considering calling it quits after 11 seasons in the league.

    "I came here because Dan is my guy and how familiar we are with each other," Johnson said. "But I've also had thoughts of retirement for much of this season. I've called other players who hung it up and asked them what went into their decision.

    "I really have no idea what I'm going to do at this point. I'm going to take some time this off-season and consider what I want to do. Sundays are great, but it's the mental part the other six days of the week that really wear you down."

    If Johnson does call it quits, it won't be due to an inability to contribute. Going into Week 17, Johnson had 67 catches for 791 yards. Just this season, he celebrated a milestone, going over 10,000 receiving yards for his career.

    The first overall pick by the New York Jets in the 1996 draft, Johnson has racked up 811 receptions for 10,547 yards and 64 TDs, while playing for the Jets, Bucs, Cowboys and Panthers.
