Richard Sherman changes his twitter handle to Optimus Prime
After breaking out with the Detroit Lions, wide receiver Calvin Johnson received the nickname ‘Megatron’ from fellow wide receiver Roy Williams. The nickname stuck with fans and Calvin Johnson is now forever known as Megatron. For those that do not know, Megatron is a decepticon character from the Transformers franchise. Megatron is often the leader of the bad guys in Transformers. After being shut down on Monday night by Chicago Bears corner back Charles Tillman, Calvin Johnson will look to put up big numbers against Seattle this weekend. If the Detroit Lions are going to have a chance to win this weekend, they will need Johnson to step it up.
In an obvious shot at Calvin “Megatron” Johnson, Richard Sherman, the corner back who will be covering Johnson this weekend, has changed his Twitter name to Optimus Prime. In the Transformers franchise, Optimus Prime is the leader of the autobots and the good guys.
