NFL RUSH
Calvin Johnson: Eight Truths and a Couple Lies

MEGATRON!!!  He's one of the most dynamic players in the NFL and tons of fun to watch.  Below are 10 of the coolest facts about him.  Eight are 100% true and two of them are, well, let’s just say… okay, we made them up! 

 

Can you choose the truth from the lies?  Tell us in comments.

 

1. He was born in Newnan, Georgia.

 

2. His number was retired by Sandy Creek High School.

 

3. He was a two-time All-American for the Georgia Tech Bulldogs.

 

4. He was the #3 Fantasy Football wide-receiver last season.

 

5. At the NFL Combine he was timed at 4.35 in the 40-yard dash.

 

6. The Detroit Lions drafted him with the first overall pick of the 2007 NFL Draft.

 

7.  He defended the Lions Megacore in Season 2 of "Rush Zone: Guardians Unleashed."

 

8.  His uniform number for the Detroit Lions is 81.

 

9.  He set the single season NFL receiving record with 1,964 yards in 2012.

 

10.  In his brief career he’s already amassed 9,328 receiving yards.

 

 

The made up fact from last week's Richard Sherman post was:

 

#4 As a child his nickname was "Super Sherman." (Of course Richard didn’t get that nickname until he and the Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII)
