Trade talk is insanity

ALLEN PARK — Apparently some misguided fans on local sports talk radio think it might be a good idea for the Lions to trade wide receiver Calvin Johnson for draft picks.

That’s preposterous.

If you don’t believe me, here’s what offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said: “To me it’s completely insane. Calvin Johnson is one of the best receivers in football. ... Once you’ve got one of those, you don’t want to lose one.’’

Here’s what coach Jim Schwartz said: “He’s one of the best players in his position in the National Football League. He’s done nothing to disappoint us. There would be no reason to make a move like that.’’

End of discussion.
