Philadelphia Eagles Reportedly Pursing Trade With Lions For Calvin Johnson

Sunday morning started with a bombshell report from ESPN insider Adam Schefter that multiple teams were interesting in making a trade with retired Lions WR Calvin Johnson before the NFL trade deadline come Tuesday.

We now know who one of those teams are, the team with the best record in the league, the Philadelphia Eagles.


To heat up rumors even further, Johnson was spotted on a plane to Philadelphia Sunday.

Detroit still owns the rights for Megatron, which they can trade to a Super Bowl contender that Johnson would be motivated to come back and play for, while the Lions would receive assets in return.

Johnson would be a perfect fit with the pass happy Eagles, adding another weapon to MVP favorite Carson Wentz and the Philly offense.
