Calvin Johnson has been the most dominant wide receiver in the last two decades, surpassing even Jerry Rice. Johnson, who was selected second overall in the 2007 NFL draft, played for the Detroit Lions in 135 games over nine seasons. He finished the game with 753 receptions, 11,619 yards, and 83 touchdowns. That was good enough for one trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, three All-Pro selections, and six Pro Bowl teams.
Sadly, Johnson never prevailed in the postseason, as Detroit notoriously couldn’t fabricate a victor around him. The establishment and their record-breaking most prominent beneficiary were on terrible conditions over cash and different issues for a really long time a while later. The Lions organization, on the other hand, appears to be at last making peace with Megatron, at least enough to share a roof for a day.
Johnson is hosting a high school football camp at the Lions’ facility, as reported by ESPN’s Eric Woodyard.
“In collaboration with the Lions, Hall of Fame receiver Calvin Johnson returned to host a high school football camp that welcomed players from all positions. As the team tries to fix its relationship with Johnson, Johnson’s relationship with the Lions has been improving recently. In addition to returning for the final mandatory minicamp day on Thursday, he was observed on the sidelines during an OTA session at the end of May.
Johnson told ESPN that he doesn’t have a specific job with the team and that there is still work to be done. However, he says that the Lions’ chief operating officer, Mike Disner, helped put things right.
