Draft Scout Trumaine Johnson News
07/29/17 - CB Trumaine Johnson expressed disappointment in not getting a long-term contract - it's the second straight offseason he and the club failed to come to terms - and while he'll play this season under the franchise tag he appears resigned to the fact his time with the Rams is likely coming to an end after this year.
"I believe the Rams are going in a different direction at the end of the season," Johnson said.
Johnson vows not to let the situation alter his outlook or play.
"I'm here, still playing football, still lacing up my cleats still putting the Rams jersey on," he said. "I'm blessed. I'm here to win football games, that's my goal. Point simple blank."
07/18/17 - CB Trumaine Johnson was unable to reach an agreement on a contract extension Monday with the Rams, and he will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.
The Rams previously placed the franchise tag on Johnson, and the deadline for signing such players to long-term contracts was Monday. Johnson will be paid $17 million this season before reaching free agency.
Johnson was slowed by an ankle injury and only intercepted one pass last season, yet he became the first cornerback to be tagged for a second straight season since Charles Woodson in 2005.
06/27/17 - CB Trumaine Johnson is expected to play the season on the franchise tender after reportedly being unable to reach a long-term deal with the Rams. Johnson, 27, signed his $16.742 million franchise tender for the 2017 season in March, guaranteeing that he will be the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL next season. However, Johnson will reportedly not sign a new deal with the Rams before the league's July 17 deadline. In 14 games last season with Los Angeles, Johnson recorded 57 tackles, one interception and 11 passes defensed.
06/05/17 - CB Trumaine Johnson was back on the field Monday as the Los Angeles Rams began their final phase of OTAs. Johnson told the media he was absent last week because of a personal issue "that I needed to take care of." But he didn't communicate to the team that he wasn't going to attend. "I understand it's a distraction," Johnson said. "I've got to do a better job of communicating with them." The fact Johnson was back Monday is a good sign if contract issues were a concern. Johnson, as of right now, will play next season on a franchise tag for $16.7 million. But he prefers a long-term contract. "Right now, I'm happy to be here and playing ball," Johnson said. "I'm controlling what I can control, and when that contract stuff comes up, I'll handle it." The Rams have also expressed a willingness to lock Johnson up long term but have also said they're taking a wait-and-see approach to confirm he is a good fit for the defensive scheme under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Johnson said he can play in any system. "I'm a complete corner," Johnson said.
03/06/17 - CB Trumaine Johnson signed his franchise tender, according to multiple reports. Johnson has a guaranteed salary of at least $16.7 million, which will make him the highest-paid cornerback in 2017. The Rams placed the franchise tag on Johnson for the second consecutive season last week. He had one interception, 57 tackles and 11 passes defensed in 14 games last season.
