The Philadelphia Eagles brought aboard a trio of former Alliance of American Football players, and two come with notable accomplishments from the former league.
Johnson, most recently with the Orlando Apollos, headlines the group. The 6-foot-2, 217-pound Johnson led the AAF in receiving the entire season, totaling 687 yards receiving and five touchdowns on 45 catches in eight games.
"I always knew I could play, play at a high level," Johnson previously told NFL.com. "I mean, unfortunately I've had a few injuries and things throughout my career in the NFL that's kind of pushed me back."
A fully healthy Johnson now has the opportunity to carry over momentum in Philadelphia.
Ward, who played for the San Antonio Commanders, returns for a second tour of duty after spending time with the Eagles from 2017 to 2018. The converted college quarterback won the AAF's Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 6 after recording a 79-yard punt return for a touchdown.
