I thought it would be a useful reference to see the entire list of occurrences of the phrase ego eimi in the New Testament. We can see:

a) That a great many different people used the phrase, not just Jesus.

b) That it was not considered blasphemous on any occasion.

c) That in the great majority of occasions, an object is either explicitly expressed, or clearly implied and supplied by the translators.

d) I count 9 times where ego eimi is translated as "I am he" with the "he" added.

The capitalization by some translators of the occurrence in John 8:58 is clearly not justified. It is simply the common expression which each one of us probably uses every day of our lives, not a title of deity.

The expression ego eimi in the New Testament (taken from the book, What Is His Name? by Alfred Norris, Aletheia Books, London England; Appendix table 45)
