Lane Johnson knows he “let a lot of people down”


Lane Johnson knows he “let a lot of people down” with his 10-game suspension last season. Mainly, he let down his Eagles teammates.

The Eagles were 2-8 in his absence.

Johnson said he has used his 10-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs as motivation for this season.

“It was the most motivating time in my life and even now,” Johnson said via Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “I know that I let a lot of people down and a lot of people questioned me. But my deal is I just want to show them how good I can really be and I think in the next four or five years, hopefully you’re going to see one of the elite tackles in the league.

“That’s what I’m trying to do. Just more motivation than I’ve ever had, taking my job more serious than I ever have. It’s been a blessing and a curse at the same time.”

    You know you’ve got a great player there if he needed a suspension to get serious about his game.

    Thank god he only cheated the entire league, instead of kneeling in thoughtful reflection during the national anthem.

    Obviously, he’s welcome to come back.

    to the haters, my birds were 5-1 with him and 2-8 without him. and several of the losses were blown leads when the d couldn’t hold on and the offense couldn’t run with consistency.

    the o-line has some depth this time.

    if they had some corners, they would be a better club this year.
