Detroit Lions Calvin Johnson proposes to girlfriend

While Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is just a few weeks away from getting married, his teammate Calvin Johnson is next in line.

The Lions wide receiver proposed to his girlfriend Brittney McNorton while in Baltimore for the Ed Block Courage Award dinner on Monday night.

“I thought it may be coming but I was totally surprised. I had no idea it was coming this soon,’’ McNorton told the Baltimore Sun in a video.

She said he proposed along the Inner Harbor. 

“It was beautiful — the sky, the stars,’’ McNorton said.

Johnson, quiet as always didn’t have much to say in the Sun’s video.

“The situation was just right, we were on vacation, so why not?’’ Johnson said.

McNorton is the Lions promotions manager. Her dad Bruce was a Lions cornerback from 1982-1990.

Stafford and his long-time girlfriend Kelly Hall will be married on April 4.

Well OK. Bruce tried to stop passes, Calvin has been really good at catching them, and now he just threw a hail Mary that was received by Brittney. Hope Megatron's already fragile knees aren't any the worse for wear after proposing. LOL
