Calvin was in the news this past offseason when he signed the biggest contract a wide receiver had ever received. He followed that by having the biggest season a wide receiver has ever had by breaking Jerry Rice‘s single-season receiving yards record.
Not much went right for the Lions in 2012 but Calvin Johnson’s season leaves no doubt about two things. One, he wasn’t responsible for the team’s offensive woes and two, the “Madden curse” doesn’t exist.
Johnson has risen his play in each of the last two seasons. Is it possible there is another level above what we saw this year?
