The New York Jets are expected to sign former Los Angeles Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson to a deal worth roughly $15 million per season, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

An annual average value of least $15 million would see Johnson become tied with Josh Norman of the Washington Redskins as the highest-paid corner in the league, according to Spotrac.

Johnson, 28, has spent his entire six-year career with the Rams, playing under the franchise tag the past two seasons, which earned him over $30 million during that span.

The 6-foot-2 corner gives the Jets a bigger-body defensive back, which they have been lacking. He is expected to immediately step in as a starter.
