Calvin Johnson responded today to the Detroit media about the comments made by Ravens’ safety Matt Elam that he’s “pretty old.”
“Sometimes you keep your mouth shut,’’ Johnson said. “He’s a rookie he’ll learn.’’
When will he learn?
“Hopefully this Monday.”
Did Johnson know who Elam was?
“Nah, I didn’t.’’
Johnson has had success against previous defensive backs who have slighted him. Coincidence?
“It’s motivation, but moreso coming from somebody I’m actually playing. I’m playing him but I see him, like I say, if I run past him down the field it’s not like he lines up on me every play,’’ Johnson said.
Kickoff at 8:40 p.m. Monday.
