By Ryan Ebert – Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson calls not only teammate Calvin Johnson Jr. a freak of nature, but also former teammate Randy Moss a freak of nature too. "Very similar," Burleson said. "Calvin might be slightly stronger. Moss might be slightly faster. They can go back and forth on the attributes, physically. They both have a high IQ for the game. Both (have) extremely strong hands. And they're freaks of nature."
"These are guys that could have easily not only played a different position on the football field -- gained 20 pounds and be the best D-end in the game, or best tight end -- but they could also have been premier athletes in other sports," Burleson added. "You talk about a couple of guys who could have played Major League Baseball, obviously basketball was something they could have done."
