Former Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson works with Oakland Raiders

Recent comments by Calvin Johnson make it pretty clear that he is not on the best of terms with his former team, the Detroit Lions. Many believe his feelings may stem from the fact the Lions forced him to pay back 10% ($320,000) of his $3.2 million signing bonus when he decided to retire prior to his contract running out, others think there may be more to the story than Johnson is telling.

Since retiring before the 2016 season, Johnson has not been around the Lions or their practice facility, but on Tuesday, he found time to make all the way across the country to work with the Oakland Raiders during their OTAs.
