Calvin Johnson has decided to call it a career at the age of 30, but even when he said he was retiring, some of his teammates didn’t believe him. Specifically, wide receiver Corey Fuller, who knew that Megatron could potentially hang it up early on in the 2015 season.
“Every time he mentioned it to me, I kind of took it as a joke,” Fuller said Thursday night. “Like, ‘Yeah, whatever. No you’re not.’ It wasn’t until close the end of the season, when he said it — he said it like two or three times — like, ‘Are you for real?’
“Then after the season, when it came out, it was for real.”
It was obviously shocking, and Fuller sounded off on how much he’s going to miss Johnson in the coming seasons.
“It still hasn’t hit me all the way yet,” Fuller said. “I’m definitely going to miss him. Miss the jokes. Miss his presence.”
Fuller’s going to miss Johnson, but it’s safe to say that fans of the NFL are going to miss him just as much, if not more. I mean, who won’t miss seeing this?
