The Philadelphia Eagles selected OT Lane Johnson out of Oklahoma with the No. 4 overall pick in Thursday night's NFL Draft. Current Eagle -- and team comedian of sorts -- Evan Mathis welcomed the newest member to receive a green Eagles' jersey in rather humorous fashion.

Welcome to Philly @lanejohnson69. No, you can’t have my number. Order my steaks rare.Now let’s get to work.

Evan Mathis currently wears No. 69 for the Eagles, the same number Johnson wore at Oklahoma.

All of Northeast Philadelphia is now lamenting the fact they'll never get the opportunity to purchase a No. 69 Johnson jersey.

Other Eagles welcomed Johnson to Philly as well, but they weren't very funny.

Lane, welcome to Philly.
