“Here’s a thing, and this is what Calvin’s thinking. we know he’s meditative like this. Calvin says ‘hold on, all these injuries we played with – a ankle, a knee – all a painkilling injections that we took to get out there… this is a interjection that we uncover me on a approach out a door?’
“So he’s frustrated, and he’s like, ‘You know what, we did a right thing.’ But Calvin, take it from a man – in 1993 and ’94, we substantially got my ankles injected out of a 32 games substantially 23, 24 times. we didn’t do it for them, we did it for me since we wanted to play. This wasn’t about them. And even when they would not re-sign me after a ’99 season, we hold no ill wills.
“But Calvin, demeanour during this. Calvin sealed a agreement in 2012, 8 years, $132 million. That was quarterback money. No other receiver has come tighten to that. Think about all a receivers that have come adult – Dez, Demaryius Thomas, Julio Jones, Antonio Brown – when they contend ‘I wish Calvin Johnson money,’ teams contend ‘that’s an outlier, you’ll never get that.’”
