Jets agreed to terms with CB Trumaine Johnson, formerly of the Rams.
Johnson was the top free-agent corner on the market after spending his first six seasons with the Rams. New York whiffed on Kirk Cousins but still find someone to spend a large chunk of their salary cap on with Johnson. A 6'2/213 press-man corner, Johnson has had bouts of uneven play over his career, and the Rams didn't seem interested at all in bringing him back. Johnson was Pro Football Focus' No. 69 cover corner out of 121 qualifiers last season. Mar 13 - 7:04 PM

Free agent CB Trumaine Johnson admitted Sunday that he won't be re-signing with the Rams.

In a social media post, Johnson thanked the Rams and his fans. A big hit as a third-round pick in 2012, Johnson appeared in 85-of-96 games in his six years with the team, making 62 starts and picking off 18 passes. The Rams are moving on with Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib at corner, while Johnson will be a hot free agent this week. He's the top corner available and has already been linked to the Jets, 49ers, and Raiders. Johnson just turned 28 on New Year's Day.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets have interest in free agent CBs Trumaine Johnson and Malcolm Butler.

New York has also been talking to Morris Claiborne but so far the two sides have been far apart in contract negotiations. The Jets may have reservations about Claiborne's long-term health after battling injuries the past several seasons. Money isn't an issue for the Jets—they have over $90 million in cap space—but Cimini expects Johnson and Butler will both be "highly coveted." Johnson, who is also drawing interest from the 49ers and Raiders, became expendable last week when the Rams acquired Marcus Peters from Kansas City.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports the 49ers are expected to be the Raiders' "main competition" for free agent CB Trumaine Johnson.

Pauline reported the Raiders' interest on Tuesday. Walking from the Rams after the team acquired Kansas City's Marcus Peters, Johnson is the market's top corner.
Mar 1 - 8:23 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports impending free agent CB Trumaine Johnson is the Raiders' "No. 1 target."

Johnson isn't going back to the Rams after they traded for Marcus Peters. 28-year-old Johnson will get his first bite at free agency after getting franchise-tagged each of the previous two seasons. He'll be the No. 1 corner on the market and should have a variety of suitors. The Raiders are planning to overhaul their cornerback room and have already cut David Amerson, with Sean Smith likely next on the chopping block. Johnson (6'2/213) is a prime press-man corner.

The Rams will likely move on from free agent CB Trumaine Johnson following the team's acquisition of Marcus Peters.

The Rams assigned him the franchise tag for the second straight year in 2017, but never came close to reaching a long-term deal and will now let Johnson walk after acquiring Peters from Kansas City. Johnson regressed last season, earning PFF's No. 75 grade out of 120 qualifiers at cornerback. Despite this, the 28-year-old should be among the most coveted defensive backs on the market this winter.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson is week to week with a concussion.

Johnson suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The Rams are hosting Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardinals for Week 7.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson left Sunday's Week 2 game against the Redskins with an apparent right leg injury.

Johnson was helped off late in the fourth quarter. With so little time left, it would be a stunner if he returned to this game. With Kayvon Webster (shoulder) also sidelined, the Rams are now without their top two corners.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 1.

This gives us an opportunity to give some love to defensive players. Johnson, the Rams' franchise player in back-to-back years, pick-sixed Scott Tolzien on his first pass and allowed just two catches in his coverage all day, earning PFF's No. 3 cover grade among corners. We'd say he fits in new DC Wade Phillips' scheme, which GM Les Snead questioned a number of times in the spring.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Steelers are among the teams interested in a "possible (Trumaine) Johnson trade."

La Canfora goes on to note the trade of E.J. Gaines on Friday made it "even less likely" the Rams trade Johnson, who is due $16.7 million via his franchise tag. Viewed as a questionable fit in DC Wade Phillips' scheme and unlikely to receive a long-term deal, the Rams would be sensible to field offers for Johnson.

Franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson said he wanted a long-term deal with the Rams "big time."

Obviously he didn't get one and now he senses that the Rams are moving in another direction. Clearly the Rams feel that Johnson is a questionable fit in new DC Wade Phillips' man-coverage scheme and don't see him as a long-term fix. The 27-year-old will earn $16.742 million under the franchise tag this season.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson confirms the Rams are not expected to reach a long-term agreement with franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson by next week's deadline.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and CBS' Jason La Canfora both reported the same thing last month. Johnson would surely prefer a long-term deal, but it's hard for him to complain, as he'll head into free agency having made $31 million off franchise tags in 2016-17. Johnson turns 28 on New Year's Day.
Tue, Jul 11, 2017 02:25:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams will not reach a long-term agreement with franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson before the July 17 deadline.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the same a week ago, and it does not look like anything has changed. Unable to sign Johnson to a long-term deal after tagging him last year, it would have been difficult for the Rams to handle this situation any worse, and it now looks like Johnson will head to free agency next spring having earned $31 million over two seasons.
Tue, Jun 27, 2017 10:23:00 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora believes there is no chance the Rams and franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson work out a long-term deal before the July 17 deadline.

La Canfora reports the two sides have had one conversation about a long-term deal and were so far apart there was no need for a follow-up call. The Rams have truly mangled this situation, and it now looks like Johnson will head to free agency next spring having pocketed $31 million over two years.

Rams GM Les Snead remains "noncommittal" about extending franchise player CB Trumaine Johnson.

Snead wanted to see how Johnson fit in new DC Wade Phillips' man-coverage scheme before opening contract talks. Now Johnson has a month of practices under his belt, but the Rams are no closer to signing him long term. "We're going to continue to sit and discuss -- because his situation is based on all the people we have, whether it's Aaron [Donald], [Alec] Ogletree, Tru -- and navigate those waters," said Snead. Johnson is reportedly seeking at least as much as Desmond Trufant, who landed a five-year, $69 million extension in Atlanta.
