Megatron Got Into the Hall: Mad Dog’s Thoughts
Now that the NFL season is over and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were crowned Champions, there is a new Pro Football Hall of Fame class and former Detroit Lions wide out Calvin Johnson Jr. was elected in.
His nickname is “Megatron” and boy was he an outstanding player. Johnson played at Georgia Tech and was drafted second overall in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Lions. Of course, everyone knows the Lions smelled when he played there.
This guy is a specimen. He’s 6’5’ ran a 4.35 40 yard dash and weighed 236 lbs. Calvin Johnson abruptly retired from professional football and the Lions organization in 2016.
Calvin Johnson has had a very strained relationship with the Lions because they made him give back some of his money after he retired so suddenly. It was complete chaos and turmoil. To be honest it was stupid on the Lions part. Some might say he is a wealthy guy already and it doesn't matter, but it wasn’t right on the Lions side! But now since last weekend when he was named to the incoming class for the Hall of Fame it looks like there could be a reconciliation.
Calvin Johnson has spoken with Lions owner Sheila Ford Hamp and they will get this resolved. That’s a great thing. Congratulations to “Megatron,” well deserved to a great player. He’s going to Canton.
