·1 min read

The Eagles acquired their new safety, trading for trashing talking Saints defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson.

The trade compensation has been announced, and Philadelphia is trading a 2023 fifth-round pick and the sixth-round pick acquired from the Seahawks in the J.J. Arcega-Whiteside trade in 2024 for the defensive back and a future seventh-round pick.

To create an opening for the versatile defender, Philadelphia released Anthony Harris, pairing Gardner-Johnson with Marcus Epps at deep safety.

Combined with the cornerback trio of Darius Slay, Avonte Maddox, and James Bradberry, the Eagles are now primed to be one of the favorites in the competitive NFC East.
