Lions | Johnson optimistic entering second season

Mike O'Hara, of the Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson says he expects to be a more complete receiver this season in the offense of new coordinator Jim Colletto. The Lions expect to run more and use more two-receiver formations, which should play to Johnson's strengths. "We learned a lot," Johnson said of Colletto's system. "We're a lot better route-runners. Every position has gotten better." Johnson also will play this season at 230 pounds, at least five pounds lighter than his rookie season.
