Fans of the New Orleans Saints were quite frustrated during last off-season when the team traded away one of their best, young defensive players.

The Saints traded defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson to the Philadelphia Eagles for day three draft capital.

Gardner-Johnson and the team just had too many disagreements. Coaches didn’t see his position the same that he did. The front office wasn’t going to give him the extension he was looking for at the time.

Accordingly, the Saints moved him to Philly.

Gardner-Johnson had a solid year with the Eagles when healthy this season. He recorded six interceptions this season. That would have led the Saints defense.

Now, the former Saints fan favorite isn’t holding back or mincing words when asked about New Orleans. 

Gardner-Johnson says that it isn’t disrespect to the Saints, but it certainly is.

He basically said that the talent in Philly beats the talent that replayed with in New Orleans. That’s debatable.

Gardner-Johnson played with the likes of Marshon Lattimore, Marcus Williams, Malcolm Jenkins, among others with the Saints.

The secondary in Philadelphia is impressive, but there’s no reason to try to undermine the secondaries that he played for in New Orleans.
