Calvin Johnson's Ankles Are All Messed Up

Surely Calvin Johnson could still contribute to an NFL team if he wanted, right? He’s only 32 and must be fresh as can be after being out of the game for two seasons. NFL teams, at least two of them, certainly believe it as trading for Megatron’s rights was a storyline for a bit during the 2017 season.
Of course, nothing came of it and we should all expect Johnson to stay retired. In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, Johnson revealed that nine years of burning secondaries has left his ankles in terrible shape, which means comeback talk is nothing but a futile exercise:

“I don’t (think so), man, cause I get up from the bed sometimes in the morning, I’m just like, I shuffle across the ground cause I can’t bend my ankles,” Johnson said. “That was my problem when I played, just ankle’s always stuck or swelled up, I can’t flex them. If you can’t flex your ankles then you’re just running flat-footed all the time.”

Lions fans can rest easy. That lingering fear of Johnson coming back to lead a contender to a Super Bowl isn’t happening. Probably.
