The Covington News - - SPORTS -

DETROIT— The Detroit Li­ons gave wide re­ceiver Calvin John­son a six-year deal worth up to $64 mil­lion, a per­son with knowl­edge of the con­tract de­tails told The As­so­ci­ated Press, with just un­der $27.2 mil­lion in guar­an­teed money.

The per­son, who spoke on the con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause both sides agreed to not di­vulge the fi­nances of the con­tract, said the deal guar­an­tees John­son’s salary in each sea­son and will likely be worth $55.5 mil­lion by the mid­dle of his rookie year be­cause of eas­ily trig­gered bonuses.
