C.J. Gardner-Johnson has agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

The Philadelphia Eagles made a multiyear offer to keep Gardner-Johnson at the beginning of free agency which he didn't accept, according to a source, so the Eagles pivoted and moved forward without the safety.

A fourth-round pick by the New Orleans Saints in 2019, he has 11 interceptions, 36 passes defended and 20 tackles for loss over four seasons.
