    By all accounts, a classy guy and hard worker. It is sad news indeed.

    It always sucks when cancer wins those battles. Very sad news for the Eagles and for the family of Jim Johnson.

    And, unfortunately, it almost always does win - as it did with my mom about 5 months ago. It is better once it's over, though, so hopefully this will be as quick as possible for both him and his family.

    And, for heaven's sake, if anyone out there has a family history go and get checked. I know I did.

    A melanoma is treatable in the early stages by excising the
    melanoma and the surrounding tissue. Once it gets below the
    surface of the skin it metastasizes and spreads to the brain, lungs,
    or liver. I have a dimple on my right calf where an early stage
    melanoma was removed.

    Best DC of my generation.. It was amazing watch him have waves and waves of blitz's coming after the QB and still have everyone covered..

    RIP JJ and best wishes to his family
