The deal, understandably, sent football-starved Eagles fans into a frenzy and generated high praise from the media. The reactions keep pouring in:

ESPN analyst Mina Kimes is all-in on the Birds:

FantasyPoints' Joe Dolan knows CGJ has that dawg in him:

IgglesBlitz's Tommy Lawlor throws out a lofty comp for Gardner-Johnson in Malcom Jenkins:

Hoagie maestro Eric Fink is just a tad excited about the trade:

Former Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III knows this roster is loaded:
