On Thursday, former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and his business partner (and former teammate) Rob Simms did an interview with Woodward Sports and when asked about Matthew Stafford, he said he is happy for him and that he looks forward to seeing him play for the Los Angeles Rams.
“I was talking to Matthew yesterday. Matthew’s doing well,” said Johnson. “I’m happy for him because he’s happy that he’s out in California. you know, him and his beautiful family; they’re loving their time out there.”
“When he’s comfortable, he’s good where he’s at. So you can only expect good things from him. I look forward to seeing him out there.”
Johnson also revealed how upset he is that the Lions let Stafford go but not him.
“You know what, it sucked that they didn’t let me go, but they let Matthew go, but hey, you know, it is what it is,” said Johnson. “I’m not mad at Matthew; I love Matthew.”
“Man, I would’ve went anywhere.”
“We asked would they release me or let me go to another team,” said Johnson. “They wouldn’t.”
Well, it sure does not sound like Calvin Johnson’s relationship with the Detroit Lions has gotten much better at all.
