C.J. Gardner-Johnson to honor the late Kobe Bryant with Eagles jersey number

C.J. Gardner-Johnson is back like he never left, agreeing to a three-year deal to rejoin the Philadelphia Eagles.

During his introductory press conference, Gardner-Johnson told the media that he’s getting into “Kobe Mode” and will wear the No. 8.

The talented and versatile safety says he’s the “best” young safety in the league, and he’s already bringing back that swagger that was severely missing from the Eagles’ defense in 2023.
