Lions still awaiting Calvin Johnson decision

The Detroit Lions are still waiting for word from wide receiver Calvin Johnson on if he wants to retire, or not. Johnson is believed to be leaning toward retiring. He would count $24 million against the salary cap if he's still on the roster in three weeks. Team president Rod Wood, appearing on 105.1 FM in Detroit on Thursday, said Johnson has not yet made a decision. “It’s still in Calvin’s camp to make a decision,” Wood said. “I talked to him on Monday. Bob Quinn talked to him. Calvin has not made a decision. “If he wants to come back, we’d love to have him back. If he decides to retire, we’re going to support that, too.  He needs to decide what’s fight for him. The worst thing we could do is put pressure on him.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
