CB - CAR
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports CB Trumaine Johnson is signing with the Carolina Panthers.
Johnson was released by the Jets back in March. He had signed a five-year deal back in 2018 but ultimately got benched just last season. Carolina has some major issues on the defensive side of the ball, however, so Johnson could be worth a flyer.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Jets are officially releasing Trumaine Johnson on Wednesday.
This has been expected for a while but now it's official. The Jets will have to eat $12 million in dead money. Johnson is one of the worst free agent signings in team history.
Trumaine Johnson (hamstring) is considered questionable for Sunday's season opener against Buffalo.
Johnson was limited in each practice this week. He is expected to play and figures to see a large role in New York's secondary.
Josina Anderson of ESPN is reporting that Jets starting cornerback Trumaine Johnson is inactive for Sunday’s season finale after “he didn’t show up for some meetings, nor practice” earlier in the week.
Johnson missed Wednesday practice due to what head coach Todd Bowles deemed an “in-house matter.” Neither Bowles nor Johnson provided further details on the matter at the time. Johnson returned to practice Thursday and all indications were he would play in the game but it was ultimately decided he would sit. It’s a sour ending to his first year in New York after signing a five-year, $72.5 million deal in the offseason.
Jets cornerback Trumaine Johnson (quad) was a full participant in Thursday’s practice. It was his first full practice since injuring his quad Week 4.
Johnson returned as a limited participant late last week and now appears fully on track to play in Sunday’s game against the Bills. Prior to the injury he had 13 tackles, one interception, and a forced fumble in four games.
