The year 2021 has been extremely difficult on professional athletes, as it seems like this year more than ever there have been athletes dying left and right. Whether it be the MLB, NFL, NBA or NHL, it seems every couple of days either a present or past athlete has died.
Unfortunately, the latest news in deceased players comes from the Philadelphia Eagles organization. It was announced today that three time former Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowler and defensive tackle Charlie Johnson has passed away.
He played in Super Bowl XV for the Philadelphia Eagles and was selected to three Pro Bowls. Johnson’s three interceptions in 1980 were remarkable because he was typically replaced by teammate Ken Clarke on passing downs. Johnson also played college football at the University of Colorado.
