Buffalo Bills wide receiver is doing all he can to get into good shape, and avoid the injury bug that has plagued him over the past two seasons.
One player Johnson likes when he sees him, is Detroit Lions all pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Johnson rarely misses games while dealing with a ton of punishment on a regular basis.
Stevie Johnson’s personal trainer, Travelle Gaines, says that their off-season workouts this year are designed to make Stevie a bigger, stronger more physically imposing receiver, like Calvin Johnson.
Gaines was on NFL AM Wednesday, and according to Pro Football Talk, Stevie Johnson “wants a body like Megatron.”
“Stevie came to me and said, ‘I want to be considered a Top 5 wide receiver in the NFL. I want that Calvin Johnson type frame, that Calvin Johnson type of intimidation,’” Gaines said on NFL AM. “So he really hit the weights hard. He’s in the best shape of his life.”
“I think with Stevie’s personality, people think he’s just a jokester and a clown. But when he’s ready to go, he goes, and he’s 100 percent focused when he’s in the weight room,” Gaines said.
Stevie Johnson can never be like Calvin Johnson because he’s three inches shorter and thirty pounds lighter. He can benefit from being a bit stronger and in better shape.

Detroit Lions special teams coordinator John Bonamego says running back Reggie Bush will have a role as a returner.
“Reggie will have a role,” Bonamego told detroitlions.com. “Reggie (can return punts) and is willing to do it. That’s more situational — we need one, let’s put him back there and let’s see if he can make something happen.
“I had him his first two years...
We here at WCSN have spent a great deal of time recently poking fun of Matthew Stafford for this chart, which shows that the Lions have gone 1-23 against teams with a winning record with Stafford as their quarterback.

Hopefully this is a good sign that Broyles is well on his way to getting back to a 100% for the start of the season. The Lions need him and he could be a nice late round flier in fantasy.
