Calvin Johnson is back in the news and the former Lions star receiver is trashing the team he spent his entire nine year career playing for. He claims that during his career he suffered at least nine concussions and used to smoke weed after every game to recover.
After suffering one of those concussions Johnson says the Lions made him change his story to stay in the game.
“I knew I was concussed because I blacked out. I wasn’t seeing straight. And they wanted me to change my story.” Mostly, he says, he played through concussions because in his NFL that’s how you earn Employee of the Month.”
If that story is true, they certainly wouldn’t be the only team to do so. As you might expect, the Lions have a little bit different version of the event.
