Rams signed franchise player CB Trumaine Johnson to a one-year, $13.952 million contract.
He'll settle for the franchise tender while the two sides work toward a long-term agreement. With Johnson taken care of, the Rams will now shift their attention to Janoris Jenkins, who is hoping for an annual salary in the $12 million range. That's a steep cost, but Los Angeles has over $45 million in cap space. Mar 4 - 3:37 PM

Rams assigned the franchise tag to CB Trumaine Johnson.

The Rams have chosen Johnson over fellow free agent CB Janoris Jenkins, though they'll almost certainly work to keep Jenkins in the fold ahead of next week's open market. Johnson is locked into $13.952 million for next season. The sides have until July to reach a long-term agreement. Johnson emerged as one of the league's better corners in 2015, and just turned 26 in January.
Mar 1 - 3:41 PM's Ian Rapoport reports the Rams are "leaning toward" franchise tagging free agent CB Trumaine Johnson.

The Rams also want to keep free agent Janoris Jenkins, but it sounds like they have a slightly higher grade on Johnson. Jenkins recently changed agents, suggesting he's prepared to hit the open market. With Josh Norman not going anywhere, Jenkins would be the top corner available if he isn't re-signed.

CBS Sports Jason La Canfora reports the Rams will use the franchise tag on either CB Trumaine Johnson or CB Janoris Jenkins.

Both young corners are headed to free agency, and GM Les Snead has said his "priority A" is re-signing both. That goal may not be feasible prior to the March 1 deadline to use the franchise tag, however, meaning the Rams would have to choose. La Canfora reports the organization has yet to make a decision, but he "wouldn't be shocked if they ended up tagging Johnson." Signing one to a long-term deal before Tuesday and tagging the other would be the best-case scenario.

Rams GM Les Snead says his "priority A" is re-signing free agent CBs Trumaine Johnson and Janoris Jenkins.

Both players were amongst the better corners in the league last season. Jenkins is the bigger name, but Johnson was arguably the better player in 2015. Jenkins wasn't far behind, however. The Rams have the cap space to retain both players if they're serious about keeping their secondary together.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jim Thomas "heard earlier this offseason" the Rams might place the transition tag on free agent LCB Trumaine Johnson.

The Rams' goal is a long-term deal with Johnson, but the transition tag could be a way for Los Angeles to secure Johnson's 2016 rights if a longer agreement can't be reached. Only 26, Johnson is coming off a monster season in which he recorded 17 pass breakups and seven interceptions while earning a top-20 cornerback grade among 118 qualifiers from Pro Football Focus.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson was benched for the opening series of Sunday's loss for violating team rules.

"Trumaine violated team rules, so I started (Marcus Roberson)," coach Jeff Fisher said. "Not going to go into it; no, it’s between me and Trumaine." Johnson went on to have his second consecutive strong game. It shouldn't be an issue going forward.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 2.

It's an indication Johnson has been cleared. Johnson was having a strong game in Sunday's upset of the Seahawks before going down. Marcus Roberson is No. 3 on the depth chart.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson exited Week 1 against the Seahawks with a concussion.

Johnson won the right-corner job after CB E.J. Gaines was lost with a Lisfranc injury. Johnson made a terrific interception on Russell Wilson in the first half to set up a Rams field goal. Marcus Roberson is now in the game.

Trumaine Johnson is expected to start opposite RCB Janoris Jenkins following E.J. Gaines' season-ending foot injury.

A 2012 third-round pick, Johnson has started 17 games the past two seasons, turning in mostly mediocre performances. Things are much shakier for the Rams' defense in the back than they are up front. Gaines was St. Louis' top cornerback in 2014. There is no reason to believe Johnson is as good or better.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (knee) is listed as probable for Week 9 against the 49ers.

Johnson has been sidelined since the preseason with an MCL sprain. Johnson will provide a nice boost to the Rams' struggling and banged-up secondary.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Slow to recover from his preseason MCL sprain, Johnson couldn't get healthy during St. Louis' Week 4 bye. Rookie E.J. Gaines will continue to make starts.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson has a sprained MCL and is expected to miss six weeks.

It's actually good news after Johnson was carted off in noticeable pain Saturday night. It had the looks of a possible season-ending injury. Johnson will certainly miss the opener, and may not be available before Week 2 or 3. The Rams may choose to hold him out through the Week 4 bye. Second-year CB Brandon McGee will likely fill in opposite Janoris Jenkins for the first few weeks of the season. The Johnson injury is a reminder to avoid overdrafting the Rams' fantasy defense, which boasts a talented front four but is leaky in the back seven.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson was carted off with an apparent left knee injury in Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

Johnson got blown up by one of his own teammates. It had the looks of a serious injury. Johnson buried his head in a towel as he was towed to the locker room. The Rams are thin behind Johnson and fellow starter Janoris Jenkins, with Brandon McGee and sixth-rounder E.J. Gaines serving as the only real depth. The team also has safety/nickel hybrids Lamarcus Joyner and Rodney McLeod.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson is a player the team wants to "let breathe" a bit in 2014.

It's part of the reason the Rams released CB Cortland Finnegan earlier this month. They want Johnson and RCB Janoris Jenkins to take the next step in their development and not have to look over their shoulders at a veteran like Finnegan. Johnson has the size (6-foot-2, 208) that every team looks for. Quarterbacks managed just a 74.5 passer rating while throwing at Johnson last season.
