The Detroit Lions wished former wide receiver Calvin Johnson a happy birthday this morning via social media, including a highlight tribute video:

Among his career accolades include sporting the best three year stretch by a receiver in NFL history. A three time All-Pro selection, he holds the NFL season record for receiving yards with 1,964.

His relationship with the Lions since calling it a career in 2016, however, has been strained.

Could this be the first step towards a reconciliation between the two sides?

Let us know what you think!
