Twitter reacts to C.J. Gardner-Johnson’s cryptic tweet fanning free agency flames

Howie Roseman and the Eagles have said all the right things about wanting to keep C.J. Gardner-Johnson on a long-term deal, but as the new league year fast approaches, things could be changing.

Philadelphia will now head into NFL free agency with limited cap space and a looming contract extension for All-Pro quarterback Jalen Hurts.

As expected, the Eagles let Tuesday’s franchise and transition tag deadline pass without locking down C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Javon Hargrave, or any of their 19 pending free agents.

Likely seeing the writing on the wall, Gardner-Johnson posted this cryptic Tweet, saying one love to Philly fans with a hype video to remind folks just how good he was in 2022.

Social media reacts to everything and Gardner-Johnson essentially saying goodbye to fans drew some urgent responses.

I’m not sure a ballad will keep Gardner-Johnson in Philly.
