Draft Scout Trumaine Johnson News
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.
03/01/17 - CB Trumaine Johnson had the franchise tag placed on him for the second consecutive season. The move was expected and will make Johnson the NFL's highest-paid cornerback in 2017 with an expected franchise tag salary of $16 million. The Rams and Johnson can discuss a long-term contract until July 15 at 4 p.m. ET., and if no deal is reached by that time, he will play the 2017 season under the franchise tender.
12/07/16 - CB Trumaine Johnson is preparing for one of his biggest challenges of the season defending Falcons Pro-Bowl WR Julio Jones, who leads all NFL receivers in yards (1,253) and yards per catch (17.4).
"Good matchup, man," Johnson said. "He can do it all. Literally, he can do it all. One of the best we're going to face this year. I can't wait."
Further complicating the matter, the Rams could be without E.J. Gaines, their starting cornerback opposite Johnson. Gaines left Sunday's game against the Patriots with a quad injury.
"We've been playing the next-man-up philosophy all year," Johnson said. "I've lined up with Troy (Hill), E.J. and now Mike (Jordan). As you could see in that (New England) game, Mike had a good game, to come in and produce like he did. I can't wait. It's going to be a good matchup for us."
11/10/16 - CB Trumaine Johnson did not practice Wednesday with an ankle injury. His status for Sunday is uncertain.
