He also played golf with Downing, head coach Jack Del Rio and QB Derek Carr.

Lions | Calvin Johnson's return could put Lions in bind (Tue Jul 18, 11:30 AM) - Former Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson, if he decided to come out of retirement, could force the team to release him.

Our View: This is an interesting story to keep an eye on as Johnson has recently opened up about why he walked away from the Lions and into retirement. If he returned, Johnson's old salary would count against the team's cap. According to Spotrac, Johnson cleared over $11 million in salary cap space when he retired, which would put the Lions over the threshold.
