Trumaine Johnson has been one of the key cogs on the dominant Rams defense over the past few years.
America's team has had some struggles at the back of their defense over the past couple seasons, but they may be in the running for some serious talent:
Now that Richard Sherman signed with the 49ers, I have to believe the Oakland Raiders are now in business for Trumaine Johnson as are the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys..— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 11, 2018
The Cowboys and Johnson seem like a match made in heaven. With Jourdan Lewis and Orlando Scandrick as the top two corners on their roster, they clearly need a No. 1 corner.
Last season, Johnson racked up 57 tackles to go along with 2 INTs and 13 passes defended in 2017. According to PFR, last season was his best since his 2015 season where he posted 7 INTs.
Unfortunately for Dallas, the money is going to be a little tight on this deal. Johnson will demand a contract in the range of $9-$12 million annually for at least three years, so it'll be tough for Dallas to make the money work without finessing their roster.
Stop throwing the Cowboys name out there for clicks lmao. Everyone knows the 'Boys can't afford to sign Trumaine Johnson— Jay Belch (@PlatypusApostle) March 11, 2018
We'll see how this plays out over the next week.
