ESPN’s much anticipated interview of Calvin Johnson on their E:60 program airs Thursday night at 10 p.m. ET. As we discussed on Wednesday, the segment appears to show Johnson in a candid fashion that we aren’t accustomed to with the legendary receiver.
Already, we know Johnson will talk about the factors that led to his retirement, the wear-and-tear on his body throughout his career and some issues he has with NFL doctors and medication use. Here are a few teasers ESPN has put out for the interview:
We will be covering the interview live on the Facebook Live platform. If you are unaware of Facebook Live, it is an interactive feature on Facebook that allows us to live video stream while you, the viewer, can comment, ask questions or give us any reaction to the news.
