Sad as eagle’s Fletcher Cox set to retire; C.J. Gardner-Johnson to make a return to Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is set for a retool, and GM Howie Roseman has the assets to add a dynamic player to a revamped roster.

The Eagles have their first-round draft pick, No. 22 overall, plus a pair of second-round picks (Nos. 50 and 53), giving them three selections among the first 53 draft picks. Altogether, the Birds have eight picks and are expected to have another four compensatory picks from the league, which could include an additional third-round pick.

Philadelphia’s has some roster decisions on players like Haason Reddick and Darius Slay, but the biggest news could focus on a legend’s departure, and a fiery defenders return.

With the final day of the NFL combine set, Jeremy Fowler reports that Fletcher Cox is “closer” to retirement, while C.J. Gardner-Johnson could return to the Birds.

Adam Schefter previously reported that Jason Kelce and Fletcher Cox were leaning towards retirement after a disappointing NFC wild card loss.

Jeremy Fowler reports that Cox’s position hasn’t changed after more than a month to think about his future,

Last off-season, Eagles GM Howie Roseman essentially chose James Bradberry over C.J. Gardner-Johnson, with the talented safety taking his talents and Philadelphia’s swagger with him to Detroit.

A C.J. Gardner-Johnson reunion in Philadelphia is on my radar. The Eagles realized they missed the talented safety in the secondary. Tennessee makes sense for him, too. Titans defensive coordinator Dennard Wilson is a big fan of Gardner-Johnson from their Philly days.

Jeremy Fowler reports that Roseman is looking for a do-over, and Gardner-Johnson could return to Philadelphia.
