Jim Johnson has passed away

According to Brian Seltzer of ESPN950 and multiple other sources, former Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson has passed away. Johnson had taken a turn for the worse in the last few days and he finally lost his battle with cancer today. Johnson was 68 years old.

Another sad day in Philadelphia sports history. We've lost yet another great man. Our prayers and condolences go out to his family.
