Megatron Returns? Lions prez thinks Johnson ready

(TSX / STATS) -- Might Calvin Johnson be seriously considering the invitation to training camp extended by the Detroit Lions?

Team president Rod Wood sounds confident that Johnson might join the Lions after the team sent a formal invitation. Johnson retired before the 2016 season and said recently that he walked away because the franchise was not close to reaching the Super Bowl.

"As I said on WJR (Radio), we had a very nice, cordial exchange," Wood said of his discussion with the receiver known as Megatron. "I'm hoping he comes. I'm not going to say anymore beyond that. I do have confidence it'll work out ultimately."
