Johnson is arguably the best if not one of the best tackle in the league. And, his place in the team is very important. With him on the field, quarterback Carson Wentz is a much better passer in terms of accuracy and play making.
Having an anchor as good as Johnson on your offensive line is crucial and the Eagles know that. This extension is critical because it’s always important to protect your franchises most expansive asset.
What’s next for Johnson and the Eagles, a trip to Miami to take on the Dolphins. He’ll be back after missing last week’s game with a concussion. With him back, the Eagles will look to get back on track with a win. Fly Eagles Fly!
