Trumaine Johnson says goodbye to Rams ahead of free agency

After the Los Angeles Rams added Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib and Sam Shields in a matter of weeks, the writing was on the wall as it pertains to Trumaine Johnson’s future. Seeking a lucrative long-term deal, Johnson won’t be returning to the Rams this offseason.

He’ll hit the open market on March 14 and is expected to become one of, if not the highest paid cornerbacks in the game today. Knowing this fact, he said goodbye to the Rams, his teammates and everyone in the organization.

The legal tampering period, which allows teams to negotiate contracts with free agents, begins on Monday at 4 p.m. It’s very likely that Johnson will get a done fairly quickly, earning north of $13-14 million per year.

That money won’t come from the Rams’ pockets, considering how many additions they just made to the secondary this offseason.
