Jets to sign Trumaine Johnson, top free-agent cornerback

Jets to sign Trumaine Johnson, top free-agent cornerback”

The New York Jets have reportedly agreed to a deal with former L.A. Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson, taking one of the top free agents off the board.

It was obvious Trumaine's days with the Los Angeles Rams were numbered after the Rams acquired Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib over the past couple weeks.

The 6-2, 213-pound Johnson, who spent the first six years of his career with the Rams, had 14 pass deflections and two interceptions last season. He was on the franchise tag in each of the last two seasons, and while Los Angeles wanted to keep him, they couldn't continue to justify paying his high price tag with other pieces at their disposal. He's started at least 12 games with double-digit passes defensed and more than 50 tackles in three straight seasons.

The New York Jets have been making noise in free agency this year, re-signing Josh McCown, in the mix for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and signing running back Isaiah Crowell.

Johnson, who is a class guy, will also be going from one of the best teams in the National Football League, perhaps even a Super Bowl contender, to one probably years away from contending in the same division with perennial division victor New England.
