Calvin Johnson. Wow


Recommended Posts

Wow indeed lol. Anyone remember how much Fitz's was and for how long?

Fitz was $120. This is the new record.

They had to or that cap was going to be n shambles next year.

I'd like to see the #s but with Stafford/CJ/Suh being 1st/2nd/1st before the new rookie cap I'm willing to bet that was at least 50% of there cap space.

Thanks for the numbers. Yea, all that young talent is great, but it really hurts since they're all before the new cba.

Is Calvin Johnson really $114,000,000 better than Reggie Wayne? Wow!

Let's just assume Calvin mimicks what he's already done. (not getting better,just duplicating)

CJ-152g-732rec-11,744yds-98TDs

Wayne 173g-862rec-11,708-73TDs(career #s)

21 less games, less Rec more everything else. And Reggie had the GOAT......Calvin Johnson is a crazy good WR, and if he stays healthy worth every bit of that $$$$.

Wayne lost a HUGE chunk of his market value by virtue of being 33 years old. If he were 28 he'd probably command more than Vincent Jackson but wouldn't get the kind of megadeal the likes of Megatron and Larry Fitzgerald have received.

I know CJ is crazy good, may be the 2nd best WR of all time when its all done, but sweet Jesus he got a bigger contract than Eli, Roethlisberger and other Super Bowl winning QBs. Reggie Wayne seems like a bargain to me lol :)

And in defense of Reggie he was the #2 receiver to Marvin Harrison for a large chunk of his career, while CJ was always #1. Who knows what Reggie's numbers would have looked like if it wasn't for Marvin. He'd be a sure fire hall of famer for sure.

I still think that's way to much for a receiver, the only person that should demand that much in my view would be a QB. Aren't they going to be in a bad cap situation for awhile because of that? I guess the good thing about Detroit though is they basically have all the pieces in place and can continue to build in the draft for whatever positions they might need.

All these comparisons, how about mentioning that it's more per year than Peyton's last deal - which was intended to tie Brady's last deal.

How is ANY wr worth more per year than the top QBs in the league. There is simply no way to justify this. Even if you ignore on field value and just focus on the value he returns to the team - never in my life have I gone out of my way to watch a game just because of a WR. On the other hand the Manning/Brady matchups drew tv crowds as significant as playoff games every year. I've only watched this guy a couple of times by accident and didn't even notice him standing out like - for instance - Fitzgerald does (or several other top receivers). It's just an insane deal which you have to think they will regret down the road.

Highest contract for any player in NFL history. With all that money, you could build a real Megatron.

lol nice

any one who is doubting the price, go watch his last season,

im sure stafford under threw him the ball and he faked out more than 1 defender and still caught, listnening to his presser,

a reporter asked " calvin johnson took a pay cut to play with stafford" lol i laughed so hard , its true

haha If I was Calvin, I would start off with a joke like that. "I would like to thank everyone for coming today. I would just like to announce that I am taking a pay cut to stay with the Detroit Lions"

If Matthew Stafford is healthy, I'm taking Calvin Johnson 2nd round in my fantasy draft. With that much money already on top of Calvin's skill-sets, you know he will play hard.

Someone always takes Andre Johnson in the first round. I have a feeling Calvin will replace Andre as that weird, first round wr pick

it should have been done this year,

been a fan since his Georgia Tech Days, got a nice jersey too,

just imagine if he had a quarter back earlier on in his career, darn

,in regards to the jokes, he was very humble and i think burlesson basically vouched for him, on nfl networks interview

Calvin Johnson is too huge, somebody is going to light his butt up eventually, then it's.....charles rodgers time.

I wouldnt even put larry fitzgerald and calvin johnson in the same neighborhood. Fitz is a god amongst receivers, if you know what the heck you're watching.

Calvin Johnson is a beast. He deserves to be paid like that. Also, is that stat line up there comparing Waynes and Johnsons stats accurate? If so WOW Johnson is super productive. How long has he been in the league? 5 years? Reggie 11

No no no not his official stats. I was taking Calvin's career #s and simply doubling them. No increase in production, no growing as a player, just doubling his previous 5 yr stats, one season as a rookie, one season injured, and one season with Stafford as his full time QB, as well as his other two, and comparing them to Reggie's career #s. just an attempt to show others what kind of path xnd pace Calvin is on. Which is just simply unreal.

    • Kid is a stud. Really need him to stay another year so he and Buchner can get us a Natty.
    • STANFORD!!!! As for Phillips, I have to share the concern others have over his concussion history. He’s apparently prone to them, and the odds only go up that you’ll get one on the NFL. He can’t be but a few more away from having to step away from the game permanently. There’s no denying his talent, but I’d much rather see the Colts maneuver their way into getting Payton Turner in the second round. That guy is an intriguing, 3 down type DE. Relentless motor, pterodactyl arms.    
    • I don't want to speak for other people...but I will take a stab at it from a devil's advocate POV.   The way I see it...it's not necessarily the idea of paying Q or Leonard...it's more the idea of paying a premium (meaning truly market-setting massive contracts) for players that don't actually play a premium position.    Most people (outside of the truly ardent positional value people) would have no issue with having the highest-paid player at G if he's the best G in the NFL (which Q pretty much is). Right now the highest long-term AAV at G is Thuney with a $16M AAV. So I don't think anybody would quibble with giving Q $17-18M.   But many people (including Q's agent I am sure) are thinking Q should get top LT money...which is $22-23M+ AVV. So I can definitely see where the disconnect starts to occur.    You can do the same exercise with Leonard...except use highest-paid WILL and then highest-paid MIKE (if not higher).   There's definitely a balance to carrying large contracts on the cap. You can only have so many of them. And when you max out...you can be limited in how you can fill certain positions of need (including premium positions). So now, instead of trading for a DeFo or signing a top tier CB in FA...you have to figure out how to fill those premium positions with cheaper FAs or via the draft.   Ballard has been able to short-term fill those positions with cheaper FA moves, but not the draft. And traditionally, it is just easier to fill less premium positions through those means.     
    • Thanks, I missed quite a few (ten!) additional reserve/futures contracts. Below is the updated info on r/f contracts, new adds are bolded:   Reserve/Futures Contracts   Defense CB Andre Chachere CB Anthony Chesley CB Will Sunderland CB Roderic Teamer DT Kameron Cline DT Chris Williams DT Rob Windsor S Ibraheim Campbell S Nick Nelson   Offense G Jake Eldrenkamp G Sam Jones OT Jake Benzinger OT Elijah Nkansah OT Carter O’Donnell OT Casey Tucker RB Darius Anderson RB Benny LeMay RB Paul Perkins TE Farrod Green TE Jordan Thomas TE Andrew Vollert WR Quartney Davis WR Gary Jennings WR J.J. Nelson QB Jalen Morton   Special Teams P Austin Rehkow Note: I confirmed all of these on the official Colts.com website as r/f additions as well as being shown as currently on the roster.
    • Without a pass rush, KC is almost insurmountable   With a little more pass rush in Buffalo..... just 1 or 2 more hurries in that game.... we win   I 100% agree on not forcing it   If we dont trade out of 21, and Paye is there .... you take Paye   If not, take the best OT on the board.   Get DE in round 2 (Maybe trade up to get the DE on our board)   Looking at the draft I think there are some decent DEs that could be in a rotation this year that might be had in 2nd round   Turner, Basham, Weaver, Tryon, or Odeyingbo, are ones that come to mind
