Eagles | D. Johnson to take over as holder

Bob Kent, of reports Philadelphia Eagles P Dirk Johnson will assume the role of holder on all field goals and PATs, after the team released QB Koy Detmer. "Every rep, it becomes more comfortable," Johnson said. "Obviously, we don't have game reps as much yet, but they're going to come. It's just going to keep coming. The more we (he and PK David Akers) work together, the more familiar we get with each other, the more comfortable I'm going to be in there. It's just time and reps." Johnson has worked at his new craft throughout the spring and summer. He's actually worked at it in practice over the last few years in the event anything were to happen to Detmer.
