http://mweb.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-o...eport-calvin-johnson-tells-lions-hes-retiring "Like many players at this stage of their career, I am currently evaluating options for my future," Johnson said in a statement earlier in January. "I would expect to have a decision regarding this matter in the not-too-distant future." According to Schefter, Lions coach Jim Caldwell told him to take his time and not "rush" his decision. After a few weeks of thinking it over (or pretending to think it over?) Johnson has apparently made a final call. Johnson, per Schefter, told Stephen Tulloch and Matthew Stafford about the decision during the year but didn't relay it to the organization until afterwards. The 30-year-old (he would be 31 when the 2016 NFL season begins) is 43rd all time in catches, 27th all time in receiving yards and 22nd all time in touchdown catches.
