A look back: Calvin at the Combine

Just heard a great Calvin Johnson story from when he was at the 2007 NFL Combine, thanks to the NFL Network. He had decided not to run so he loaned his shoes to quarterback James Pinkney to use. Then Johnson came onto the field through the tunnel, saw the lights and decided to run.

Johnson found the QB, got his shoes back and then ran a 40 in 4.38.

Certainly a lights-out moment at the Combine.
