Through seven seasons, Johnson has 579 career catches for 9,492 yards and 68 touchdowns, including catching seven passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns in Detroit’s 35-14 victory over the New York Giants on Monday night.
“Not very often you’re going to catch me comparing one guy to another and particularly when you’re talking about a guy who undoubtedly is going to be a Hall of Famer,” Caldwell said, according to the Detroit Free Press. “There are not many Hall of Famers in this league now that come through the ranks that you get a chance to see. Calvin’s going to be one of those.”
Johnson’s Hall of Fame resume is stacking up as he already has NFL records for receiving yards in a season and is the only receiver to accumulate more than 5,000 yards over any three-year period.
