Anyway, what I didn't know until Friend of The Blog Jeff McDevitt illuminated the subject is that Reigns was a co-captain on the team with none other than Calvin Johnson, currently the best wide receiver in all of professional football. The stats may not have borne out last year, but like his Ramblin' Wreck teammate, Johnson spent a good bit of the fall out on the sidelines hurt. If only he were healthy, maybe he could have helped to keep Roman strong. Ah, the what-ifs of sports are as complex as the Universe itself. If only Reigns had kept Johnson's number, then maybe The Shield would still be together with Dean Ambrose, Reigns, and Megatron holding down the fort. I mean, that picture above does indicate a certain level of cool brotherhood, right?
