Cris Carter said last week that Calvin Johnson isn’t one of the NFL’s elite receivers, then backtracked when called on it.
Carter’s comments had some Lions fans riled up, but Johnson himself isn’t worried about it.
“I don’t really care,” Johnson said. “I don’t really listen. I didn’t even know what happened until one of the guys told me the other day. I have my remarks, but I’m going to keep that to myself.”
Johnson declined to get into his own rankings of the top receivers in the league, but he did take issue with one thing Carter said: Carter claims that Johnson gets shut down by single coverage, and Johnson says that’s news to him.
“I wish,” Johnson said. “I wish I could get single coverage every game. That’d be fantastic.”
