Lions' Calvin Johnson: Officially retires
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson filed retirement papers Tuesday and officially announced his retirement from the NFL.

Johnson was said to be leaning strongly in this direction, but the Lions held out some hope that they could coax another year out of him. Despite dealing with constant nagging injuries over the past few seasons, Johnson finishes his nine-year career with 731 receptions for 11,619 yards and 83 touchdowns, having missed just nine games along the way. He averaged at least 70 receiving yards per game in every year besides his rookie campaign, most notably setting an NFL single-season record with his 1,964 yards in 2012. There will probably be comeback rumors at some point in the next few years, as Johnson turns 31 in September and just posted a 88-1,214-9 receiving line in 2015.

Lions' Calvin Johnson: Hasn't made final decision on retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Detroit Lions President Rod Wood said Calvin Johnson hasn't yet made a final decision on retirement, Mike O'Hara of the team's official website reports.

Previous reports suggested that Johnson was strongly leaning toward retirement, but with the superstar wide receiver yet to make an official announcement one way or the other, the Lions are still hoping to coax another season or two out of him. The team likely wants him to negotiate new contract terms, but it seems they'll give Johnson as much time as he needs to make a final decision.

Lions' Calvin Johnson: Lions will attempt to change Johnson's mind
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Detroit Lions will do everything in their power to convince Calvin Johnson to continue playing, NFL.com reports.

In the wake of Sunday's news that Johnson intends to retire, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relayed Monday that the wideout has personally called owner Martha Ford in order "to thank them for everything." While the Lions have noted "profound respect" for Johnson and will give him time to make a decision, Rapoport released another bombshell Monday, stating Johnson wouldn't return on his 2016 salary of $15.95 million, but rather would be offered a two-year contract with reduced cap figures similar to the one signed by Larry Fitzgerald last offseason. However, because Johnson has dealt with serious ankle injuries and general body soreness the last few seasons, the Lions' potential offer of a multi-year deal likely isn't an appealing one.

Report: Lions WR Calvin Johnson plans to retire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvin Johnson intends to retire from the NFL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

At the conclusion of the 2015 season, Johnson shared his thought process with head coach Jim Caldwell, who urged the wideout to take his time with the decision. After tending to ankle issues throughout his career -- but more specifically over the past two campaigns -- Johnson has also dealt with increased general soreness in his body. In a statement made through the Detroit Lions ' organization on Jan. 6, he stated that the call would be confirmed, one way or another, in the "not-too-distant future," but he required less than a month to uphold his desire. Once he files the proper paperwork, he'll conclude his career with 731 receptions for 11,619 yards and 83 touchdowns in 135 games, including the second-most receiving yards per game (86.1) of any player in NFL history.

Lions' Calvin Johnson: No timetable on decision to play in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calvin Johnson 's agent Bus Cook told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press that the wide receiver doesn't have a timetable regarding his decision to play next season.

In a statement three weeks ago, Johnson relayed that a decision would be made in the "not-so-distant future." Because Cook clients have dabbled in the will-he-or-won't-he act in the past -- see, Brett Favre -- Johnson could very well take his time. Fortunately for the Detroit Lions ' new general manager Bob Quinn, the final call won't come out of the blue, meaning all contingency plans should be in place. In the event Johnson isn't donning Honolulu blue and silver in the fall, Golden Tate would become the nominal No. 1 wideout in Detroit.
