On Saturday, it was announced that former Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2021 class. It was a great moment for Megatron, who had far too few accolades honoring the talent he displayed on the field for nine years in the NFL.

Saturday night was also an opportunity for fans, analysts and teammates to celebrate Johnson’s phenomenal career. People gathered on social media to share their memories of Calvin and highlights of his greatest moments.

A ton of his peers took part in the celebration, as well, as just about anyone who crossed paths with Johnson was amazed not only by his physical talents, but his unrelenting work ethic.

So here’s just a sampling of Johnson’s teammates who raced to social media in the past 24 hours to honor and celebrate the career of the one-and-only Calvin Johnson:
