Calvin Johnson now has the richest contract among wide receivers in NFL history after Detroit gave him an eight-year package worth up to $132 million.

His agent says the deal is worth $60 million guaranteed if Johnson plays through the 2019 season. It is one of the richest deals in league history and tops by $10 million the eight-year deal Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald got last year.

Johnson is a five-year veteran and two-time Pro Bowler. His 45 receiving touchdowns are the most in the NFL since 2008.
