Lions Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders wrote this on barrysanders.com on Tuesday:
“I saw that Calvin Johnson announced his retirement from football today. He was an amazing and rare talent both on and off the field, and I feel lucky to have been able to see him play.
“I hope that Lions and NFL fans will join me in celebrating Calvin’s incredible career and wishing him and his family luck in starting the next chapter of their lives.”
