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.

    • Ok, I'll say it.  If your Wisconsin CB has to run after a WR, would it be a Wildgoose chase?
    • Very true.  Even day two.  After Pitts the drop off is significant.  There will be FAs with experience that would be just as good or better.  
    • I disagree with this. I believe Ballard didn't want to pay up for an EDGE rusher. He admitted he wanted Autry back, and he went to the Titans instead. That was plan A. Afterward, he signed Rochell and re-signed Muhammed to somewhat stabilize the D-Line. He is now having to decide whether to re-sign Houston, or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds.    We are being forced to see what we have in Banogu, Turay, and Lewis. They are all 2nd round picks and it's sink or swim for them. They definitely aren't better options than Autry and Houston. I would say the same about the top EDGE rushers in FA this year. Cheaper? Yes. Better? No. Right now, we don't have an EDGE rusher that we can depend on. Maybe that changes, but EDGE is our biggest weakness on the team, bar none. At least with LT, it can be masked with Q and the rest of the O-Line along with some solid depth we signed. We are literally masking the entire EDGE spot with Buckner right now, and we're fully dependant on signing Houston back, or drafting an EDGE rusher that makes an immediate impact without knowing yet if Banogu, Turay, or Lewis improves.   Unfortunately, losing Autry hurt pretty badly. That will be hard to make up without some luck.
    • Tremble has been one of my early favorites   I saw one of the commentators mention the other day, that Tremble has had issues with drops   The little games I have watched, they didnt throw much to him...... is this an issue?    
    • You may end up being right, but lets be honest, these 4 are not playmakers, they are just familiar names to us on a roster.   We need some pass rush to get this defensive scheme to work. None of these 4 have proven that they can bring this on a consistent basis   When the offensive line was weak, we drafted both Q and Smith in the same year   I hope they take the same tact this year. 1 early, and 1 mid rounds that can develop.   Also, 3 of these 4 are free agents next year. We will have some churn next year.   We had better load up at an important position, IMHO
