Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been traveling across Europe promoting the brand of American football recently. And in a recent press conference in Italy Johnson was unabashedly envious of Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch.
“He’s in a great situation,” Johnson said after being asked if Johnson has thought about playing with Lynch and the Raiders. per FIDAF TV.
Johnson actually visited Oakland’s facility this year as a guest of Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing, which naturally had Raiders fans salivating everywhere.
