Lions invite Calvin Johnson to visit training camp after negative words

Less than a week after former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson spoke about the leaving the Lions in Italy, there is news the team extended him an invite to training camp.

"If I was to keep playing, I would have to play in Detroit, and that just wasn't for me anymore", Johnson said.

Those comments came shortly after an ESPN report saying Johnson was forced to repay $1 million of his remaining protracted signing bonus upon his retirement. As one could surmise, Johnson and the team may not be on the best terms.

"Hopefully he shows up", Wood told WJR-760 AM in Detroit. He's a great player, we want to have him kind of in the tent, not outside the tent.

When Johnson retired in March of a year ago, he did not hold a news conference and did not talk to anyone in the media until June 2016.

Johnson is the franchise's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, but admitted he retired because he didn't see a bright future with the Lions and couldn't get out of his contract.
