Calvin Johnson AKA Megatron dropped a huge bomb on the NFL world today when he announced his future was uncertain in a statement released by the Lions.

The 30-year-old Lions wide receiver has dealt with several nagging injuries throughout the years which is the reason why he’s mulling retiring from the league.

“Johnson has suffered a number of injuries which forced him to miss practices the past few seasons but only three games the past three years.” The report read. “However, Johnson was in obvious pain and took a more secondary role with the team. He finished the 2015 season with 88 catches for 1,214 yards and five touchdowns. It was just his fifth most productive season of his career.”

Johnson is still relatively young and it would suck to see him go when it seems he can still be productive in the NFL.
