Eagles safety Keelan Johnson was arrested early Saturday in Arizona after Tempe authorities said he pushed a police officer following a bar brawl, according to various reports. The Eagles acknowledged the arrest and said in a statement that they were "disappointed."

"We are still trying to learn all of the facts that led to his arrest," the team said in the statement. "At this point, it's a pending legal matter and therefore, we will have no further comment."

Attempts to reach Johnson through his agent Monday night were unsuccessful.
