Calvin Johnson among NFL analyst’s greatest wide receivers of all time

Former Yellow Jacket Calvin Johnson is among NFL analyst Gil Brandt’s greatest wide receivers of all time. 

The former Detroit Lion landed the No. 18 spot on Brandt’s list. The Georgia native was voted to six Pro Bowls and was a First Team All-Pro three times during his career.  

He holds the NFL’s single-season receiving yardage record with 1,964 yards in 2012 and the third-highest receiving yards per game in the league’s history with 86.1.
