Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver and Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is resigned to the idea that his single-season NFL receiving yardage record will be broken one day.

Speaking to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press (h/t's Kevin Patra), Johnson said: "I mean, it's bound to fall at some point the way it's going, so it is what it is. I held it down, I don't know even know how long, over a decade now."

The physically imposing wideout known as Megatron made history in 2012 when he racked up 1,964 yards on 122 catches, surpassing the previous single-season yardage record of 1,848 yards set by San Francisco 49ers legend Jerry Rice in 1995.
