Sad News: C.J. Gardner-Johnson has treminate a hug contract that worth $78.8m with the lions….

ALLEN PARK — C.J. Gardner-Johnson’s lone season with the Detroit Lions didn’t go as anyone expected. However, the electric defensive back landed the long-term deal he sought, agreeing to a three-year, $33 million deal to run it back with the Philadelphia Eagles, per NFL Network.

Gardner-Johnson tore his pectoral muscle in the team’s Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He played through the injury, then returned in time for the team’s season finale and three playoff games.

He notched an interception in the finale, then another in the divisional round, too. Now, Gardner-Johnson returns to the team where he led the league in picks in 2022. Landing this long-term deal didn’t seem likely after the injury, not to mention the shift to safety and eventual bump to a three-person rotation to end the season. But the Eagles know more than most about what they’re getting into with the talented defensive back and energetic presence.
