Banner On The Passing Of Johnson

Eagles president Joe Banner and head coach Andy Reid will hold a press conference very shortly regarding the passing of longtime defensive coordinator Jim Johnson.

In an email sent to the employees of the Eagles organization breaking the sad, sad news, Banner expressed how everyone at this time feels - "we will miss him."

"For 10 years, Jim Johnson was an exceptional coach for the Philadelphia Eagles, but perhaps more importantly we know that Jim was a strong, wise man, dedicated to his family and friends," Banner said. "While his presence will be missed, his legacy of excellence will be felt for years to come. Our hearts go out to his wife, Vicky and his wonderful family. We will miss him."
