Andre Dillard, offensive lineman, Tennessee Titans

Andre Dillard, as you know, was a former first-round selection of the Philadelphia Eagles. Those of you who know that also know that he lost the battle to become Jason Peters' successor to a former rugby player who didn't know how to put his helmet on when he arrived at the NovaCare Complex.

Final grade: D

He signed a three-year, $29 million contract with the Tennessee Titans on March 20th, 2023. How's that going you ask? Let's just say Titans fans are ready to move on, and it's assumed the organization may catch up with that reasoning soon.

Sheesh! Let's quit and move on while the getting is good.

C. J. Gardner-Johnson, safety, Detroit Lions

You never would have guessed this at this same time last year, but there's a buzz growing around the idea that C.J. Gardner-Johnson may return to the Eagles this season. That idea has gained both support and fury. There's seemingly no gray area or anyone who appears to be sitting on the fence.

Grade: D

His brief time in the City of Brotherly Love was exciting. The way he handled himself during his exit left much to be desired. All we know is after the Detroit Lions signed him to a one-year, $8 million contract on March 20th of last year, they appear to be set to move on after a single season. To be fair, however, he did miss time with both a leg injury and a torn pectoral muscle.
