MK Sports Talk, a prominent voice among Eagles fans, criticized the move, claiming that Gardner-Johnson had become a “constant clown” and had chosen to join a lesser team for less money.

“This guy was beloved in Philly. Now he's nothing but a constant clown that has Eagle envy,” MK Sports Talk tweeted. “Took less money to be a lesser team. Grass isn't always greener (pun intended).”
