Former Eagles safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson reached agreement tonight with the Detroit Lions, as per Adam Schefter.
Gardner-Johnson agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with $6.5M fully guaranteed signing, as per Tom Pelissero.
Gardner-Johnson was traded to the Eagles during the 2022 preseason and promptly helped elevate the defense to one of the NFL’s top units.
If not for a lacerated kidney that cost him five games, Gardner-Johnson likely would have been a Pro Bowler and All-Pro after being a co-leader in interceptions with six total.
