Fans roasted an NFL player on social media Friday after they announced they were changing their name. Detroit Lions defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson has plenty of time on his hands to make a name change. The veteran safety was placed on injured reserve in September after sustaining a torn pectoral.
Gardner-Johnson is an eccentric player for the Lions. He asked Lions fans to mask up during Lions home games earlier this season in just his first year in Detroit.
