Three weeks from now the Lions will need to know if Calvin is completely at peace with calling it quits.
That's because in three weeks he'll count against their books for $16 million in 2016.
If you ask team president Rod Wood, who was on 105.1 FM in Detroit Thursday, he'll tell you that Calvin hasn't yet made a final decision on his future.
Via Mike O'Hara of the Lions' website, Wood said "It's still in Calvin's camp to make a decision. I talked to him on Monday. Bob Quinn talked to him. Calvin has not made a decision."
That obviously conflicts with an ESPN report that indicated he had officially decided to retire.
For the moment, we'll assume that Megatron is hanging up his cleats. But if that were to change, then the fantasy community may have just been turned on its head.[graphiq id="h9RKnaIo5aB" title="Calvin Johnson Overview" width="640" height="607" url="https://w.graphiq.com/w/h9RKnaIo5aB" link="http://football-players.pointafter.com/l/10404/Calvin-Johnson" link_text="Calvin Johnson Overview | PointAfter"]

For the record, I never actually played football. I have no doubt that I would get crushed running across the middle for a pass, every single time.
