  • Calvin Johnson finger

In recent comments, former Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson said the the franchise's lack of success played a part in his surprise retirement past year at age 30. Twentyman reported that Wood told WJRR Radio he has been in touch with Johnson recently, and gave an invite to the team's training camp to their former star receiver, in hopes to get him back on the field.

As a way to attempt repairing this fractured relationship, team president Rod Wood said he's had some communication with Megatron via text message. Maybe you think the Lions shouldn't have tried to nickel-and-dime Johnson when he made a decision to retire with years left on his deal. He's a great player, we want to have him kind of in the tent, not outside the tent.

"I didn't see a chance for them to win a Super Bowl at the time, and for the work I was putting in, it wasn't worth my time to keep on beating my head against the wall and not going anywhere".

This wasn't the first time Johnson admitted his dismay for the Lions after his retirement. As one could surmise, Johnson and the team may not be on the best terms. He visited the Oakland Raiders' OTAs as a special guest.
