Johnson reiterated Saturday that he plans to remain retired as an NFL player, NFL.com reports. "No. I'm not coming back," noted Johnson, who announced his plans to call it a career after the 2015 season.
Obviously no one player can replace a talent like Johnson, and with that in mind the Lions approach training camp with a wideout corps headed by Golden Tate and free agent acquisition Marvin Jones, with TJ Jones and Jeremy Kerley likely jostling for the team's No. 3 wideout role. In his final season with the Lions, Johnson -- who turns 31 in September -- caught 88 passes for 1,214 yard and nine TDs.
