Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson needs Lions fans' help if he's going to top the fan vote for the Pro Bowl. Despite threatening Jerry Rice's single-season yardage record for a wide receiver, Megatron is just fourth in fan voting among NFL wide receivers for the Pro Bowl.
New York's Victor Cruz leads all NFC receivers with over 438,000 votes. Chicago's Brandon Marshall also has more votes than Johnson in the NFC, as Marshall has garnered over 389,000 votes to date. Johnson, meanwhile, only has over 383,000 votes.
Currently, the Lions do not have any leading vote-getter at any position, and Megatron is likely Detroit's only hope at a starting spot in the Pro Bowl. Still, Johnson trails two wide receivers in the NFC, and will need to leapfrog one of them to earn a starting gig.
