With the offseason nearly over, summer vacation is just about complete for NFL players. I'm sure quite a few players are spending their final moments before training camp relaxing, but Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson does not belong in that category. Instead, he's been busy gearing up for training camp, and he took his training to another level on Tuesday with a Bane-style mask:

Wearing all of that extra gear while training in the sweltering Atlanta sun does not look too appealing, but I suppose there's a reason Calvin Johnson is such a special talent.
