VIDEO: Calvin Johnson's Interview With Jim Rome

Earlier this week, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was a guest on Jim Rome Is Burning. During his nearly six-minute-long interview with Rome, Johnson discussed several topics, including the loss to the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs, what happened in the NFC title game, if this season was a success for the Lions, what the Lions need to work on going into next season, the penalty problems the team had, the craziest thing he has seen from a defense and his contract situation. Check it out:

Via Justin Rogers, here is what Johnson had to say in response to the question about contract talks and if he wants to get something done before next season.

"Yeah man, definitely. We're going to see here soon," Johnson said. "We should have some talks hopefully, get things rolling on that end."

Johnson was also asked if he would have a problem with a deal not getting done before next season, and he said that is something he is talking to his agent about right now.
