The Detroit Lions have made wide receiver Calvin Johnson the highest paid receiver in the NFL. He will be making somewhere around $132 million for an 8-year contract. Johnson led the league with 1,681 yards receiving. There is no Johnson is an amazing player not only that but he brings in big merchandising money. I think people forget jerseys and team wear are a big industry for teams.
Now the question is can the Lions get a better running backs to make their money worth it.
