When Calvin Johnson retired, he left a Hall of Fame legacy that hopefully won't be forgotten

Calvin Johnson left the NFL long before it was his time to leave. That started the countdown to the Hall of Fame. We have nine practically pristine seasons from Johnson. He didn't fall off in his 30s. There's no memories of him hanging around late in his career with random teams. It's just the greatness he showed with the Detroit Lions. There was absolutely no question about his Hall of Fame credentials. Johnson will be formally inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend.

What Happened to Rafael Palmeiro and Where is He Now?

When the scandals surrounding steroid use began to overtake baseball, speculation began on which players it might keep out of the Baseball Hall of Fame. These days, it’s become clear that the MLB players tarnished with the steroid brush aren’t likely to become Hall of Famers. Home run king (deal with it) Barry Bonds and one of the five best pitchers of the modern era, Roger Clemens, seem unlikely to make the cut, which leaves basically no hope for anybody.
