Summary

283 carries for 1,225 yards (4.3 per carry), eight touchdowns, 61 receptions, 527 yards, and three receiving scores is an impressive stat line. Unfortunately, it took Kerryon Johnson three seasons to rack up those totals, which is why the new regime cut him. The Eagles claimed Johnson off waivers, and he'll compete with Jordan Howard, Boston Scott, and rookie Kenneth Gainwell for snaps behind Miles Sanders. When healthy, Johnson is a three-down talent with no real holes in his game. He's a willing blocker, an able receiver, and doesn't shy away from contact. But he's missed too much time with a bad knee and other injuries. (May 18)

Eagles | Kerryon Johnson restructured deal (Wed Jun 2, 09:36 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Kerryon Johnson agreed to a restructured contract that will pay him the veteran minimum of $920,000 with a matching cap hit in 2021, according to a league source.

Our View: Johnson is getting a second chance in the league to prove himself. The 43rd overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft by the Lions, Johnson struggled to stay healthy and impress. The Lions waived him this offseason and the Eagles scooped him up. He'll compete with Jordan Howard, Boston Scott, and rookie Kenneth Gainwell for snaps behind Miles Sanders.
