With Dallas set to face Detroit on Sunday, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is comparing himself to Lions receiver Calvin Johnson. And one of Johnson’s teammates is scoffing at that.
Asked about Johnson, Bryant said, “I believe I can do whatever he can do.” Lions receiver Nate Burleson heard that comment and chuckled.
“Listen, I like Dez. I think he’s one of the best receivers in the game right now,” Burleson said. “Very talented. Fast, big, strong. He possesses all the tools to possibly be as good as Calvin. But he’s not Calvin Johnson. No way, no how. Sorry, Dez. Keep it real.”
After Burleson said that, Bryant wrote on Twitter, “I see I have to be extra careful about what I say.”
Bryant can say whatever he wants, but Burleson is right: He’s not as good as Megatron.
