Today was probably the worst day for Lions fans since Barry Sanders called it quits in his prime.
According to ESPN, sources say that Detroit Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson told his family and a close circle of friends before the past season that 2015-16 would be his final season in the NFL.
The five-time Pro Bowler has battled lingering ankle injuries and general body soreness for the last couple of years.
Johnson also has the luxury of making the 3rd most money ever at wide out in NFL history throughout his career. He has been highly productive and one of the best wideouts in the past decade.
Johnson is only 30 years old, and by many standards, people would say in regards to age this is the prime of his career.
