Free agent defensive back Lemarcus Joyner agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the New York Jets, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Joyner spent the previous two seasons with the Raiders, where he primarily played nickel in Paul Guenther's scheme. He'll move to safety under new Jets' coach Robert Salah. The former Florida State Seminole has recorded 417 tackles and four interceptions over his seven-year career.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Raiders are releasing veteran safety, Lamarcus Joyner.
With Joyned set to have a cap hit of $9.95 million in 2021, the move makes a lot of sense in this cap environment. With the Raiders making several moves to free up salary cap including the releases of veterans Richie Incognito and Gabe Jackson along with the rumors of Trent Brown being shopped, the Raiders are clearly searching for cap space for 2021. Joyner now becomes the third starter the Raiders have released this week.
FS Lamarcus Joyner collected five solo tackles, two assisted tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 6 win against the Denver Broncos.
Joyner started the season slowly, but has been heating up as of late. Keep an eye on him if you're desperate for safety help, or as a potential bye week fill-in at the position.
FS Lamarcus Joyner recorded one solo tackle and four assisted tackles in the Los Angeles Rams' Week 5 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
Joyner has recorded between four and six total tackles in every game this year except a goose egg in Week 2 against the offensively-inept Arizona Cardinals. Expect similar production moving forward.
Rams' S Lamarcus Joyner recorded five solo tackles and one assisted tackle in their Week 1 matchup against the Raiders.
Joyner didn't flash, but he didn't make any big mistakes either. The Rams defense has plenty of superstars, and teams are likely to throw his way to avoid them. Joyner has the opportunity to produce on the stat sheet if he stays healthy and can make teams pay for targeting him.
