Gardner-Johnson's agency tweets: Eagles' three-year offer was 'fake'


C.J. Gardner Johnson's agency is oddly getting into the fray on Twitter.

Universal Sports Management's Twitter account tweeted on Sunday night following the news that safety CJGJ signed a one-year deal worth up to $8 million with the Detroit Lions.

The agency defended CJGJ's decision, explaining that the Eagles' offer was a "fake" three-year deal worth $24 million with $17 million coming in year three.

The agency was skewered in the comments for getting involved on Twitter, something that CJGJ himself has been criticized of as well. Gardner-Johnson was active on Twitter throughout the negotiation process, occasionally deleting tweets, like one that said, "The disrespect is real," as well as this one.

Gardner-Johnson, 25, was acquired by Howie Roseman from the New Orleans Saints right before the start of last season. The defensive back did not disappoint, recording a career-high six interceptions in 12 games.

The Eagles have been busy during the free-agency period, re-signing cornerback James Bradberry, extended cornerback Darius Slay and bringing veterans RB Boston Scott, DE Brandon Graham, C Jason Kelce, and DT Fletcher Cox back on one-year deals. Contrarily, the Eagles lost some key players like DT Javon Hargrave, LB TJ Edwards, S Marcus Epps, LB Kyzir White, OT Andre Dillard, RB Miles Sanders, G Isaac Seumalo and the aforementioned Slay.

Philadelphia also signed RB Rashaad Penny to a one-year deal worth about $2 million.
