4. Trumaine Johnson
Rams fans remember well just how effective Trumaine Johnson was on the defensive side of the football before the cornerback signed with the New York Jets as a free agent in 2018.
At the time, Los Angeles was in a difficult situation due to the fact that Johnson’s asking price was too high, and they knew he would most likely be too expensive to keep around for the long run.
With that being said, it’s no secret that Johnson hasn’t exactly lived up to his hefty contract with the Jets, and the fact that he was benched earlier in the season shows there’s some frustration on New York’s end.
Most likely, the Jets would love to get Johnson off their hands if the right opportunity were to present itself, and even though the contract isn’t the most attractive factor in the world, maybe the Rams would be able to work something out.
A reunion with Johnson sounds like an absolute long shot just to be considered, but also crazier things have taken place in the NFL over the years where players find a way to return to their former teams.
Johnson’s impressive play from his time with the Rams is part of the reason he was able to earn such a hefty contract from the Jets, and for all they know, a fresh start back in Los Angeles could help him get back on track.
