FlexWork Sports Management LLC, the company that organized a football camp for Diontae Johnson, is suing the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver for not appearing at the camp in late May.

Johnson's no-show subjected the company to “significant damages, in the form of refunds, credits, and reputational damage,” according to a filing last week in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

As reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the camp was supposed to take place on May 22 at Cupples Stadium on the city's South Side, with the $125 admission fee to include a “team photo” with Johnson, in addition to a camp T-shirt and “take home items from event sponsors.” Other levels of interaction with Johnson were offered for additional money.
