Kerryon Johnson Jokes With Fan Who Was Gifted His No. 33 Jersey Instead Of Calvin Johnson’s 81

Videos by OutKick

Former Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson had some fun with a fan whose mom thought she was buying a Calvin Johnson jersey.

It was an honest mistake. She saw a Lions jersey with the name Johnson on the back. How many Johnsons could’ve played for the Lions over the years?

Well, at least two: Calvin and Kerryon.

She bought the Kerryon Johnson jersey.


There have been over twenty Johnsons who have suited up for the Lions over the years. She could have purchased a Jack Johnson jersey, a Jimmie Johnson Jersey (not that one), or even a Pepper Johnson.

Johnson β€” Kerryon Johnson β€” responded on Twitter to the photo of the fan holding up his jersey.

Very cool of Kerryon to have a sense of humor about the whole situation.

The former Auburn Tiger spent three seasons with the Lions before moving on to the San Francisco 49ers. He’s currently a free agent.

While his NFL career never really took off the way it seemed like it might, he had a monster of a career at Auburn.

He’s No. 6 all-time on the school’s single-season rushing yards list. He’s No. 4 on Auburn’s single-season touchdown list with 18, a feat he accomplished in 2017. That same year he was named the SEC offensive player of the year.
