Calvin Johnson Contract
March 15, 2012 by staff
Calvin Johnson Contract, The Detroit Lions signed wide receiver Calvin Johnson to an eight-year contract worth up to $132 million, the biggest deal in NFL history.
The player’s agent, Bus Cook, said the contract announced Wednesday is worth $60 million guaranteed. That figure and the total value of the contract are both NFL records.
Johnson helped Detroit reach the playoffs last season for the first time in a dozen years. The Lions have built one of the league’s most exciting young teams by drafting Johnson in 2007, quarterback Matthew Stafford two years later and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in 2010. The challenge now will be keeping all those stars for the long term.
Johnson, nicknamed “Megatron,” is a two-time Pro Bowl selection, and his 45 touchdowns receiving are the most in the NFL since 2008. He signed a six-year deal worth up to $64 million after Detroit drafted him No. 2 overall in 2007, and was entering the final year of that contract.
