Saints signed CB Marquis Johnson.
A 2010 seventh-round pick, Johnson was waived by the Rams last week after seeing action in four games over the past two seasons. He's a special teams player with shaky value as a sub-package cornerback prospect. Fri, May 11, 2012 11:20:00 AM

Rams waived CB Marquis Johnson, CB Brian Jackson, and OL Thomas Welch.

Johnson, a 2010 seventh-rounder, was no longer needed after the additions of Cortland Finnegan and rookie Janoris Jenkins. Former Giants practice squad Jackson was placed on injured reserve last October, two weeks after signing. Welch was signed off the Patriots' practice squad in November.

Rams placed CB Marquis Johnson on injured reserve with a lacerated spleen, ending his season.

Johnson was admitted to the hospital on Monday with an "abdominal contusion," but was later diagnosed with perhaps the most painful sounding injury to send someone to injured reserve this season. He will not require surgery. A reserve, Johnson brings the number of Rams cornerbacks placed on I.R. since the beginning of training camp to a staggering 10.

Rams CB Marquis Johnson has been hospitalized with an "abdominal contusion," and will stay overnight on Monday.

Things are getting comical in the Rams secondary, which just can't keep anybody healthy. Activated off the PUP list only three weeks ago, Johnson sounds like a poor bet to suit up in Week 12. That's bad news with starter Justin King nursing knee and ankle injuries.

Rams activated CB Marquis Johnson (knee, shoulder) from the PUP list.

Johnson was a pure special teamer as a rookie last season, but could see some time at nickel back with the Rams secondary being decimated by injury.

Rams CB Marquis Johnson (PUP, knee) resumed practicing this week.

Johnson is returning from rotator cuff surgery in addition to microfracture and OATS procedures on his knee. The OATS surgery involved taking a ligament from a non weight-bearing place and replacing it in the knee. Johnson had a "quarter-sized" hole in his knee and was on six weeks of bed rest after the operation. The Rams can't expect a major contribution this season.

Rams placed CB Marquis Johnson on the reserve/PUP list and signed DT Marlon Favorite, formerly of the Eagles.

Favorite has played roster pinball since going undrafted out of LSU in 2009. Johnson underwent offseason knee surgery and hadn't practiced at all in camp. He was only a special teamer, and will be eligible for return in Week 7.

Rams CB Marquis Johnson is recovering from offseason knee surgery.

The severity of the procedure isn't known. Purely a special teamer, Johnson will begin training camp on the active/PUP list, severely hurting his chances of making the final roster.

Rams waived CB Marquis Johnson.

St. Louis is expected to bring back nickel back Kevin Dockery to fill the open roster spot. Johnson will likely be re-signed to the practice squad.
Mon, Sep 27, 2010 05:36:00 PM

Rams waived CB Marquis Johnson, OT Ryan McKee, and WR Brandon McRae.

Johnson, a seventh-round pick out of Alabama's secondary factory, is a practice squad candidate. McRae was making plenty of plays at camp and has good size at 6'4/205. He'll also likely land on the practice squad.
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 05:59:00 PM

Rams signed seventh-round CB Marquis Johnson to a four-year contract.

Johnson played behind Javier Arenas and Kareem Jackson over the last three years, but was used plenty in Alabama's nickel and dime packages while learning a pro-style defense from Nick Saban. The Rams' secondary is annually weak, so Johnson should have a decent shot to make the club.
