If you’re anything like me, you saw a teaser for the news last night that showed a mugshot and promised an “Eagles player” got arrested. You then looked at the mugshot and thought to yourself, “Are they sure he’s an Eagles player?” He is. Kinda.
Keelan Johnson, a safety who spent some time on the practice squad before making the roster for two games and making one tackle, was arrested in Arizona on Saturday after he allegedly “‘violently pushed’ an officer in the chest, causing him to strike his head against a tree.” He’s been charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. So what did the new Philadelphia Eagles, who hate doors and secrets, say about this? “We are disappointed … We are still trying to learn all of the facts.” Among those facts is probably when they can cut all ties with him. Does Friday around 4pm sound good? Although, there’s already no one paying attention to this story, so they can actually do it whenever.
