In many ways, the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2016 season hinged on the availability of offensive tackle Lane Johnson.

Johnson missed 10 games due to PED violations. The Eagles went 2-8 during that stretch.

‘I know that I let a lot of people down’

He returned for the final two games of the regular season, victories against the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.

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.
