It’s been nearly two years since Calvin Johnson has played in the NFL but it appears that teams are still interested in the future Hall of Fame wide receiver. Today, Mike Freeman of Bleacher reported that multiple teams have reached out to the retired Lions receiver to see if he was interested in returning to the NFL.

According to a number of NFL sources, at least a half-dozen teams have reached out to retired wide receiver Calvin Johnson to gauge whether he would consider returning to the field, but Johnson has said no. Still, the attempts to convince Johnson to make a comeback have been fairly fierce,” Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reported on Thursday.

Johnson is only 31-years-old but it is still under contract with the Lions and it’s doubtful that the team will let him go without getting a lot back in return.
