Calvin Johnson

Short bio: 

Calvin Johnson, Jr. (born September 29, 1985), nicknamed "Megatron", is a wide receiver for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Georgia Tech, and was recognized as an All-American twice. He was selected by the Lions with the second overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.

On March 14, 2012, Johnson signed an eight-year, $132 million contract extension with the Lions, one of the largest sports contracts ever. Johnson has a rare combination of size (6 ft 5 in and 239 lb), hands, speed (40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds and 100 meter in 10.23 seconds), strength, leaping ability, body control and hand-eye coordination. His nickname "Megatron" was given to him by former Lions wide receiver Roy Williams and the name caught on with fans.

On December 22, 2012, Johnson broke Jerry Rice's single-season record for receiving yards, which had previously been 1,848. In that same Saturday night game versus the Atlanta Falcons, Johnson also set the NFL records for consecutive 100-yard games (8) and consecutive games with 10 or more receptions (4). He also tied Hall of Famer Michael Irvin's record for most 100-yard games in a season with 11.

Hi Mr. Johnson. I know you have stated multiple times your not coming back to football, but is their anyway for you to get out of your contract and come to New Orleans. We have Drew Brees, Crawfish, and a Super Bowl bound team. It's not that I want you as a #2 guy but you deserve a ring. I truly believe that. Would you be interested in coming here if possible??
