Calvin Johnson Not Worried About 30th Birthday – “Feeling Good Right Now”

Detroit Lions v Green Bay Packers

Lions’ star receiver Calvin Johnson doesn’t think he is old, overpaid or in decline, Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press reports.

“I’m just playing my game,” he said. “Doing what I set out to do.”

The assertion the eight-year veteran makes himself is that two months from his 30th birthday he still has big seasons left.

“No doubt,” he said. “What did I miss, four, almost five games last year? Still came up with just over 1,000 (yards). I still have some (good years) left.”

And about that 30th birthday? Johnson isn’t concerned about any increased difficulty in gearing up for the season at such an advanced age.

“Not really,” he said. “It’s a mind-set more than anything. If you have injuries, it’s tough. But I’m feeling good right now.”
