Matthew Stafford said it was nothing special, but in a sense, that's what made it special. The Lions quarterback tossed a touchdown pass to wide receiver Calvin Johnson in Thursday's organized team activity. Johnson beat two defenders on a fade route. It looked beautiful ... and routine.
"Not run of the mill," Stafford said. "Obviously, you throw a touchdown, you're excited about it. We've got to keep working. But I feel like we're getting on the same page more and more. He knows what I'm looking at, I know what he's looking at and it's getting better."
This is great news for potential Johnson owners. Johnson will be a top-notch receiver, but Stafford could put up some numbers this year. He'll be drafted as a backup, but has potential to crack your lineup certain weeks.
