Report: Trumaine Johnson expected to sign with Jets for $15M per year

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.

Joe Thomas pushes for own annual holiday in Cleveland
I’d like to lobby @CityofCleveland to make 7/3 an official holiday where the city government is closed, banks are closed, mandatory day off for all workers. It only make sense to roll into America’s birthday with a little pre-game holiday for all on the 3rd. Retweet if you agree
Gronk angling to play for the '69ers'
I think Rob Gronkowski just crashed my bachelor party in disguise. Not sure if he's going to retire, but said he could be playing for the "69ers" next season. I love my job. I love Gronk. #Patriots
