WR Johnson and Lions Set to Start Talking New Deal Soon

It sounds like contract talks between “Megatron” Calvin Johnson and the Lions will start soon.

Johnson was a guest Monday on Jim Rome’s TV show on ESPN, and said he thinks that talks will start soon.

“Yeah, definitely, we’re going to see here — soon,” Johnson said. “We’re going to have some talks soon, and hopefully get things rolling.”

Johnson is set to earn $14 million this season and he has the third-largest contract on his team behind quarterback Matthew Stafford and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The 26-year-old is coming off a monster season with 96 receptions for 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns.
