Cole talked about how Calvin is dealing with a lot of leg injuries and is an aging player who may drop quickly. He also said that it would be very hard to cut Calvin after this season due to how much money it would cost the Lions. Johnson signed an eight-year deal in March 2012, that is worth up to $132 million
Cole laid out two possible scenarios that the Lions are hoping for:
1. Get Calvin Johnson to take a pay-cut
2. Re-structure his contract to lower the cap number
Cole explained that these scenarios are aimed at the perception that Calvin will no longer be a Detroit Lion after the 2015 season.
He went on to claim that the Lions will draft a top WR, such as Amari Cooper from Alabama, in this year’s draft in order to begin this transition period.
According to this report, Calvin Johnson’s time in Detroit is coming to an end.MORE NEWS: City of Hamtramck To Handout Water Filters On Oct.26
