Martin Mayhew isn't a stranger to trade deadline deals, but now that his team is a front-runner, he expects the Lions to be quiet come Tuesday.
"I know we kind of talk to everybody around the league, get calls from different teams and things like that," the general manager told reporters in London on Thursday. "But I don't anticipate us making any moves at the trade deadline."
Though Johnson is not a trade target, the 29-year-old is banged up and expected to count for $20 million against the team's salary cap in 2015. In 2016, according to the Detroit Free Press, that number inflates to $24 million.
"You're asking me a hypothetical question," Mayhew said, when asked about any thoughts on Johnson's future.
