The announcement in January that Calvin Johnson was considering retirement hit many outside the Detroit Lions' locker room like a manifested anvil in a Looney Tunes film.
Apparently, some within Johnson's own receivers room didn't believe Megatron was seriously considering walking away.
"Then after the season, when it came out, it was for real."
"It still hasn't hit me all the way yet," Fuller said. "I'm definitely going to miss him. Miss the jokes. Miss his presence."
With Johnson gone, Fuller could be one of the players Detroit attempts to utilize as a deep threat, something they've lacked outside Megatron the last several seasons. Fuller has just 18 catches in two NFL seasons and lacked consistency when given a chance to play third fiddle in the Lions' passing game.
