Megatron is now Megarich. 

The Lions' star receiver has agreed to a seven-year contract extension worth more than $130 million. The news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, and the Lions announced on their website that the deal is a seven-year extension worth close to $130 million

The contract has a whopping $60 million guarantee, and it is now considered the richest contract ever signed by an NFL player. 

Johnson is 26 and coming off a spectacular season in which he caught 96 passes for 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns.
