Jim Caldwell: Calvin Johnson is going to be in the Hall of Fame
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.
