BIO

Calvin Johnson Detroit Lions

“I have the utmost respect and admiration for the game of football. It has provided so much for me and my family and I will be forever grateful to the game."

Calvin Johnson Jr., a 6’5”, 237-pound wide receiver out of Georgia Tech, was a two-time All-American who received the 2006 Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver and the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of The Year. He was drafted second overall in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions where he spent his entire nine-year career. An all-around dominant player, Johnson started in 130 of his 135 career games.

Nicknamed “Megatron” by a teammate for his strong, robotic like abilities on the field, Johnson began truly making his mark in the league during the 2008 season when he finished with 78 catches for 1,331 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Johnson had seven seasons (2008, 2010-15) with 1,000-plus receiving yards and earned league pass receiving yardage titles in 2011 and 2012 as well as the pass reception title in 2012 (122). He led the Lions in pass receptions and pass receiving yardage for six (2008-2013) and seven consecutive seasons (2008-2013, 2015), respectively, as well as the scoring title in 2010. He made two postseason appearances, the first of which included a performance with 211 receiving yards and two TDs.

Johnson was voted by his teammates as the Bobby Layne Offensive MVP Award winner for six-straight seasons (2008-2013) and was named NFC Offensive Player of the Month twice (November 2012 and October 2013).

At the time of his retirement in 2015, he held several NFL records including the most receiving yards in a season (1,964 yards in 2012) and most consecutive games with 100 or more receiving yards (8). Johnson still holds the Lions’ career record for most receptions (731) and receiving yards (11,619).

Johnson’s career stats include 731 receptions for 11,619 yards and 83 touchdowns. He earned Pro Bowl honors six consecutive years (2011-16) and was named First-Team All-Pro three times and Second-Team All-Pro once. Johnson was selected to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 2010s.
