According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, former Detroit Lions great Calvin Johnson has been named as a finalist for the class of 2021.
From Detroit Free Press:
Johnson told the Free Press in August it would be “the utmost honor” to be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer.
“The guys you just mentioned. Randy, Largent, Jerry. Tremendous respect,” Johnson said. “Followed those guys coming up. I wanted to take certain things from all those guys’ game and piece them together into my game. Not just those guys, but other greats out here, too, but they’re definitely admired.”
