One of the NFL’s best wide receivers just confirmed some good news.

Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson just announced he is now engaged to his lady-love Brittney McNorton.

Detroit Free Press writes:

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson got engaged this week while in Baltimore for the Ed Block Courage Awards, Johnson and his fiancee, Brittney McNorton, told the Baltimore Sun.

McNorton, who works for the Lions, told the newspaper that Johnson proposed to her along Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

“It’s been a very enjoyable, very memorable trip out here in Baltimore – for many reasons,” Johnson said in a video posted on the newspaper’s website.

Asked why he decided to pop the question in Baltimore, Johnson said, “The situation was just right, just happened to be right, we were on vacation, so why not?”


Congrats to the happy couple. You can check out video of Brittney discussing the engagement with the Baltimore Sun below.


    1. Isn’t it sad that’s the first thing we have to appreciate now? I know most athletes marry black women but the media doesn’t promote that.

  1. I would say congrats but knowing what I know about Calvin, that would be insincere of me. He’s a great wide receiver though. Lol.

      1. This is another side baby situation. Calvin had a rotation just like most athletes. I doubt he’s faithful now. But Britt was willing to mollywhop his baby mama for that ring, so I guess she got what she wanted in the end. But his BM is his high school sweetheart. Everyone just knew he would end up with her lol. It’s so much messiness that goes on with these athletes.

        1. Dang I didn’t know he was getting down like that. He seems like such a good guy with a good head on his shoulders. I guess I should have known better. It seems like all athletes are unfaithful. Smdh.

  2. Damn another fine a-s athlete bites the dust but I wonder how long they have been together because Calvin just had a baby not too long ago with somebody else I think he had a baby on her but let me not be messy lol congrats megatron.

  3. Well at least she’s black, beautiful and educated. He’s smart enough not wife one of these Instagram thots and reality stars.
