The Detroit Lions have locked up WR Calvin Johnson for the next 7 years. Johnson and the Lions have come to terms on a $132 million deal, with $60 million guaranteed. That officially gives Johnson the biggest contract in NFL history, for a non-QB position surpassing Larry Fitzgerald’s contract with the Cardinals.
Johnson is only 26 and is coming off one of his best season as a pro. The wideout caught 96 passes for 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns.
Megatron does work!
**UPDATE** Looks as if the actual dollars in the deal may have been overstated.
