Former Eagle says he ‘can’t stand’ ‘disgusting’ Philadelphians

It’s a pretty fair assumption to say that C.J. Gardner Johnson didn’t exactly love his time in Philadelphia.

The safety’s time on the field with the Eagles was unforgettable, as he and the Birds went 14-3 and won the NFC.

But there seems to be a good reason why Gardner-Johnson only spent one season with them and then was dumped by the Detroit Lions.

Gardner-Johnson was streaming playing video games when he said a fan paid him five dollars to answer what his favorite and least favorite parts of Philly were.

“Okay, okay,” Gardner Johnson began. “My favorite thing is people. They’re disgusting. I can’t resist them.”

His favorite thing? “I with the weather.”

Gardner Johnson may have some degree of bias against the citizens of Philly. He said his car was stolen after the Eagles’ playoff win over the New York Giants in January.

“Wow. Wow, this is how you get down in Philly?” They said.

He led the NFL with six interceptions last year and signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Lions in the offseason.

Detroit’s offense is poised to lead them to their first NFC North title in franchise history and first playoff appearance since the 2016 season. They scored 26.6 points per game last year, drafted running back Jahmir Gibbs with the 12th pick, and will return a fully healthy Jameson Williams from a six-game suspension.

However, they allowed 25.1 points per game last season, fifth-most in the league, so Gardner-Johnson will certainly look welcome in the secondary.

The Lions went 9-8 last season, went 8-2 in their last 10 games, and were alive for the playoffs at the start of Week 18, but were knocked out just before their season finale in Green Bay.
