The current hold up in contract negotiations between the Eagles and rookie Lane Johnson is a disagreement in offset language.

Johnson told PhillyMag.com that he wants a contract that’s like everyone elses.

“I’m just trying to get a similar deal to everyone else,” said Johnson in a phone conversation with Birds 24/7 Tuesday. “I just want to do what everyone else has done, the picks above and below me.”

Johnson was asked how long he’ll take to sign a contract.

“I think it will be resolved, especially in the next week or two,” said Johnson. “I don’t want to hold out. I want to be there with the guys. I want to be with the team and I think something will happen in the next week or so.”
