Everybody Taking Notice Of Calvin Johnson's New Contract

The biggest NFL news so far today is Calvin Johnson's new contract. He has been trending on Twitter ever since the news broke, and there was even a "#CalvinJohnsonIpodPlaylist" hashtag trending (Justin Durant and some other Detroit Lions players were having fun with the news about Johnson's new contract).

The nice thing about Twitter is that we can get the reaction of athletes to stories as soon as they break, and quite a few Lions players shared their thoughts on Johnson's new contract. Here are just a few of the tweets:

Former Lions running back Barry Sanders and head coach Jim Schwartz also shared their thoughts on the new deal.

Even Miami Heat star LeBron James felt compelled to tweet about Johnson's new deal.

Johnson's new contract is indeed a "MegaDeal."
