Lions receiver Calvin Johnson: 'I still have some good years left'

Friday July 10th, 2015

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson says that despite recent injuries, he has a lot left to offer his team.

Johnson turns 30 in two months. Despite missing three games last season with ankle and finger injuries, he still caught 71 passes for 1,077 yards and a team-leading eight touchdowns.

Johnson said he still has several good years left in him.

"No doubt," he said, according to the Detroit Free Press. "What did I miss, four, almost five games last year? Still came up with just over 1,000 [yards]. I still have some [good years] left."

He isn’t worried about turning 30 either.

"Not really," he said. "It's a mindset more than anything. If you have injuries, it's tough. But I'm feeling good right now."
