Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is one of the all-time greats when ‘Mic’d Up’ for NFL Films. Not only is his in-game commentary revealing and entertaining, he tends to play extremely well when he’s on the mic. What you may not know is that other players and coaches have been mic’d up over the years and are entertaining in their own right.
Check out the video below as Stafford, Steve Mariucci, Calvin Johnson, and others contribute to the best of the Detroit Lions mic’d up for NFL Films.

Multiple teams contact Detroit Lions regarding trade for Calvin Johnson
Fans of the Detroit Lions have fond memories of Calvin Johnson. During his time as a wide receiver in the Honolulu Blue and Silver, Megatron caught 721 passes for 11,619 yards and 83 touchdowns. His retirement caught many fans by surprise. Even with Johnson struggling with injuries most of his career, his exit was abrupt and seemed to take place when he still had gas left in the tank.
Since he has left the game Johnson has not had particularly kind words for the Detroit Lions franchise. He intimated that he was not treated well by the Detroit organization during a local football camp interview. Then, in an interview in Italy, Megatron made it clear that he might’ve continued playing football if he didn’t have to be located in Detroit.
Well, CJ? You might just get your wish. An ESPN report from Adam Schefter makes it clear that there are still teams interested in the superstar wideout…and the Lions are listening.
