Rumors are starting to circulate that the 9-year Lions player is considering retiring. “Like many players at this stage of their career, I am currently evaluating options for my future. I would expect to have a decision regarding this matter in the not-too-distant future,” Johnson said in a statement.
Calvin Johnson is in pain. That is why he is seriously considering retiring from the NFL.

He is simply in pain.
Johnson, 30, has talked to former teammates about what it is like to be retired.
