The NFL has waived the fine imposed on Philadelphia Eagles safety CJ Gardner-Johnson of Super Bowl 57.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the league has waived Gardner-Johnson’s $14,111 fine he originally received for a hit against Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco in the Super Bowl ago. three weeks. Officials did not throw a flag on the spot.

Johnson, 25, had four tackles in Super Bowl 57. The Eagles lost a heartbreak to the Chiefs by a final score of 38-35, courtesy of a late field goal from Kansas City kicker Harrison Butker.

That winning basket was set up by a controversial defensive call to James Bradberry. Kansas City managed to melt most of the clock, setting the stage for Butker to play the hero.

Here’s a look at the stunt Gardner-Johnson was originally fined for:

The Eagles acquired Gardner-Johnson in a blockbuster trade from the New Orleans Saints before the start of the 2022 season. Gardner-Johnson had his best season to date by far, recording six interceptions and eight pass defenses.

Gardner-Johnson is eligible to enter free agency, which is set to begin March 15. At the moment, however, there is no real indication that the Eagles and Gardner-Johnson are close to a contract extension.

Widely considered one of the top 10 free agents in 2023 NFL Draft class, Gardner-Johnson is set to land a massive contract after completing his rookie contract.

For his career, Gardner-Johnson totaled 228 tackles, four sacks, 11 interceptions and eight pass defenses. After a successful three-year run in New Orleans followed by a big year in Philadelphia, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes one of the highest-paid guards in the league.
