Eagles Rumors: CJ Gardner-Johnson recruits free agent WR to Philadelphia
Although the Eagles have an NFC Championship Game to prepare for this week, it doesn’t hurt to take a peak into what next season may bring.
Prior to the Eagles’ Divisional Round matchup vs. New York, WR Odell Beckham Jr. tweeted in support of his former team. Following Philadelphia’s victory, safety CJ Gardner-Johnson let OBJ hear it:

Following the friendly interaction, Gardner-Johnson hinted towards OBJ potentially coming to Philadelphia. Beckham Jr, 30, has spent the 2022 season rehabbing after tearing his ACL in last year’s Super Bowl and had visits with the Giants, Bills, and Cowboys earlier this year.
As teams became wary of OBJ’s ACL recovery, the Eagles were believed to be a team to watch for his services:
Last year, when the OBJ free-agency sputtered, we said, "Watch the Rams." As this year's OBJ free-agency sputters, I'll say this: Watch the Eagles.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) December 7, 2022
“Really happy with the room that we have. The best wideout room I’ve ever been a part of in the NFL,” said Sirianni in December. “We’ve had some good ones, and this is the best one we’ve had.”
With 20 pending free agents heading into the offseason, Philadelphia will have other priorities before looking into players outside of the organization. Until then, the Eagles will host Brock Purdy and the 49ers at Lincoln Financial with a trip to Super Bowl 57 on the line.
