Chauncey Gardner-Johnson moves to Eagles


Unable to agree on the terms of a contract extension for defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, the New Orleans Saints traded him to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday. 

The 24-year-old athlete's agent has confirmed the trade to the NFL Network.

The Pennsylvania organization sacrificed a fifth-round pick in 2023, as well as two speaking turns during the sixth round of the 2024 auction to obtain the services of the person who will act as marauder within his new formation. The Eagles also earned a seventh-round pick in 2025.

Selected in the fourth round (105th overall) of the 2019 draft, Gardner-Johnson has been a starter for the Saints for 31 of 45 games he played in the NFL. Last year, he had three interceptions and 46 tackles, including four for losses in the field.

Preston Williams free as air

On the Miami Dolphins side, wide receiver Preston Williams has been released.

This has been offered to other teams on the Goodell circuit for quite a while now, but the Florida club has not been able to make an exchange. Williams' name will therefore be on waivers.

Ignored at the draft, the Colorado State product was hired as a free agent by the Dolphins. In 24 games over three seasons, he caught 111 passes for 787 yards and seven touchdowns.
