Lions GM: I'm planning on Calvin Johnson being around a long time
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew doesn't plan on losing star wide receiver Calvin Johnson anytime soon. 

"Man, Calvin's a stud," Mayhew said this week at the NFL combine. "Calvin's a great player. He's a phenomenal player, you know? He has a very bright future -- and a very bright past, you know? -- and I plan on him being around for a very long time."

Johnson is due $12.5 million in 2015 with a cap hit of $20.5 million and $15.9 million in 2016 with a $24 million cap hit. He and Matthew Stafford account for much of the Lions' salary. With Johnson dealing with more and more injuries, Mayhew could cut ties with him at some point. But he doesn't see that happening anytime soon.

"Sometimes guys get injured. It's not a big concern for me," Mayhew said. "He's tough. He gets out there and he plays. There was one game this year -- Buffalo -- where he gutted it out. He got out there, and unfortunately, he got another shot in that game in exactly in the same spot. Which was unfortunate."

Charles Tillman: Calvin Johnson still the best receiver in NFL
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Though Calvin Johnson will turn 30 this September, one opposing cornerback still believes the Lions playmaker is still the best receiver in the game.

Bears cornerback Charles Tillman told MLive.com that Johnson, who finished outside of the top 10 in yards with 1,077, that he still is the top at his position.

"Arguably, the best receiver in the game today, in my opinion," Tillman said. "I go against him twice (a season), we match up well. And, yeah, you have to bring your big boy pants when you're going against Calvin Johnson."

Tillman also criticized those that think Johnson has fallen off as the league's best wideout.

"They're a bunch of dummies," he said. "Trust me."

Giants rookie Beckham replaces injured Megatron on Pro Bowl roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been named to the Pro Bowl as a replacement for Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who is unable to play due to injury. Beckham will be the first Giants rookie to play in the Pro Bowl since tight end Jeremy Shockey in 2002.

"It is definitely awesome," Beckham said, per the team's official website. "It is something that means a lot to me, and I am definitely going to cherish the moment. I’m very excited to be going to the Pro Bowl.

"The goal (entering the season) is to be either in the Pro Bowl or the Super Bowl. That is every year. That is something you want to be able to build on and put that on your resume. (We) didn’t end up making it to the Super Bowl, but I did get the invite to the Pro Bowl, so I am very excited and blessed for the opportunity."

Beckham had an outstanding rookie season, totaling 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns.
