After the Detroit Lions made the post season for the first time in 10 years, star wide receiver Calvin Johnson has decided to reward his receiving core by taking them to the NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii.
Megatron was named to the Pro Bowl team, but a sore achillies heal will keep him out of the game. Instead, Johnson has flown Nate Burleson, Stefan Logan, Maurice Stovall and practice-squad receivers Marcus Harris, Nate Hughes out to Hawaii via private jet.
The man largely responisble for the Lions’ turnaround is in the last year of his rookie contract. Detroit’s new contract is expected to make Johnson the highest paid wide reciver in the league, which hopefully means more trips to Hawaii for Burleson and others.
