A new contract the size of Calvin Johnson’s makes everyone take note, even his teammates. Here is what some of them were saying on twitter when the news broke earlier today:

I must say that was well deserved for Calvin Johnson. One of the hardest workers I’ve seen. Not to mention very humble. Happy for him!

Great day for the NFL, Lions, and city of Detroit as Calvin Johnson signs an 8-year deal to potentially keep him a Lion for life.
