Trumaine Johnson deal with Jets proves cornerback was too expensive for Rams

They haven't neglected the defensive side of the ball and ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Jets have agreed to terms and will sign cornerback Trumaine Johnson.

Even better, the amount of money Peters and Talib are making combined is far less than what Los Angeles had to pay Johnson alone during the 2017 season when he was playing under the franchise tag.

The former third-round pick has spent all six years of his National Football League career with the Rams, and while he has never made a Pro Bowl, he's considered to be a solid number one corner. 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.

Johnson has double-digit pass deflections in each of his last three seasons in addition to 10 interceptions.

The Jets finished 25th in total defense, especially struggling to stop opposing passing attacks.

Johnson was expected to sign with either the Oakland Raiders or San Francisco 49ers, so the Jets had to come in with an offer he couldn't refuse.

Johnson now joins McCown and Isaiah Crowell as unrestricted free agents set to join the Jets officially on Wednesday.
