Houston receiver Andre Johnson is widely regarded as the best receiver in football. He’s also the poster boy for the anti-diva wide receiver. He’s not showy or loud or arrogant. He doesn’t brag.
A guest on Dan LeBatard’s radio show on 790 The Ticket in Miami, Johnson showed all that off.
LeBatard: Are you the best wide receiver in football?
Johnson: “No. I’m not the best [laughs].
LeBatard: “Come on who is better?”
Johnson: “There’s a lot of great guys out there man. I’m a fan of the game. You look at ... I’m a big fan of Calvin. Calvin Johnson. Right now I would probably say he is the best.”
Dan LeBatard: “He's taller than you?”
Johnson: “He’s a pretty big guy. He’s a very talented guy. He’s my favorite guy from a fan perspective from the outside looking in.”
LeBatard: Are you a top-five wide receiver?
Johnson: “I’m somewhere in there.”
He’s somewhere in there all right. Somewhere right around No. 1.
