The Eagles announced Friday that the team will not comment further.
Johnson, who still counts on the roster, met with coach Chip Kelly on Thursday in Philadelphia.
The safety was arrested July 19 in Tempe where he played 49 games for Arizona State on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. A probable cause statement says Johnson ''violently pushed'' an officer in the chest, causing him to strike his head against a tree. Police say Johnson appeared drunk and refused officers' orders.
