It’s been three years since Calvin Johnson shockingly retired from the NFL.
Now it looks like the legendary Detroit Lions receiver might be willing to play ball again?
First things first, he still has some bad feelings to resolve over the Lions demanding Johnson pay back a prorated amount of his signing bonus when he retired after the 2015 season.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Johnson ended up paying back the Lions at least $1 million.
The team has since tried to mend its relationship with Johnson, who outlined what it would take for him to embrace the team again on Saturday.
Via Detroit Free Press:
Johnson explained that all the Lions need to do is pay him back the seven figures they made him return when he retired:
“They already know what they got to do,” Johnson told the Free Press at the annual camp he runs for local high school students Saturday in metro Detroit. “The only way they’re going to get me back is they put that money back in my pocket. Nah, you don’t do that. I don’t care what they say. They can put it back, then they can have me back. That’s the bottom line.”
If all the Lions have to do in order to get back Megatron on the field is to pay him $1 Million dollars, then cut the check ASAP.
