  • Lions sign Calvin Johnson

    Rookie wide receiver Calvin Johnson signed a six-year deal with the Detroit Lions on Friday, ending the No. 2 overall pick's eight-day holdout. Johnson's signing allowed him to get into camp for workouts, where he was out catching passes Friday morning. Fellow wideout Roy Williams said a day earlier that "the rookie needs to get in here." Johnson was regarded by some as the best player in the draft after catching 78 passes for 1,202 yards and 15 touchdowns during his All-America junior season at Georgia Tech. He won the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation's top college receiver. The Lions, 3-13 last season, in April made Johnson the fourth receiver taken with their first pick in the past five drafts. "He's going to be a big part of getting us to where we want to go," Lions president Matt Millen said after Johnson was drafted.

    It's good they're getting him in now. Better than two weeks from now and risking injury.

    There are only two rookies I'm worried about in terms of signing: Darrelle Revis and Brady Quinn. Revis is talking about sitting out the entire year and re-entering the 2008 Draft, while Quinn is completely oblivious to the whole situation.

      Revis is totally bluffing. If he sits out and then comes back in the 2008 draft, who is going to draft him in the first round knowing he is unsignable?

        I agree. The move is stupid. I love the NFL, but the only thing I hate it about it is the rookie signing process.
