Calvin Johnson appears to have mended fences with the Detroit Lions.

On Wednesday, the Lions tweeted a video that immediately grabbed on-lookers’ attention. The team tweeted, “Absolutely love to see it,” and then posted a waving emoji next to Calvin’s Twitter handle. A short video was included. The video featured Johnson hugging Detroit head coach Dan Campbell, signifying a union between the two.

The Lions and Megatron had been at odds over money Johnson felt was owed to him following his retirement in 2015.

It’s good for Detroit, the Lions franchise, and Megatron that the two sides got back in good graces. Johnson is a beloved former Lion who, much like Barry Sanders, had to endure some down, lean years in the Motor City. After all, Calvin was only in his second season in the NFL when the Lions infamously went 0-16. Even still, Johnson made a name for himself with his incredible playing abilities. He set records, jumped over defenders, sometimes more than one, and put on a show en route to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Not only that, but Calvin has also made an effort to be great off the field as well. He’s ventured into the cannabis business, called Primitiv Group, with former teammate Rob Sims in an attempt to amplify the medical cannabis markets in the state of Michigan.

The NFL world had plenty to say about this reunion between Calvin Johnson and the Lions.
