    For what it;s worth, Johnson has stated that he believes he is ready to play, but hasn't been cleared by the medical staff.

    That's just the money belt he has strapped around his waist.

    Maybe we will see Tru Johnson play football again sometime. I don't think a pulled quad is a career ending injury but based on what were seeing so far with him, I guess you don't know for sure

    Nah. I don't watch ESPN I don't have cable.

    I work long hours have to be at work early am my free time is limited. I follow my team I don't pretend to be a super fan that follows every other team and every player. I get my NFL news from profootballtalk which allows me to stay up to date on the latest news & rumors from around the NFL.

    That said if a player is good I've heard of him and if I've heard of him I make it a goal of mine to focus on that player when that team's game is showed on tv here.

    I never heard of this guy before the Jets signed him.

    That's fair.

    He was a top 10 free agent on profootballtalk and the top CB.

    https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/03/06/pfts-free-agent-top-100/

    The following are PFT’s top 100 free agents for the start of the 2018 league year. The rankings include prospective unrestricted and restricted free agents, as well as released players. The list will be updated as events warrant, with signings, tags and re-signings denoted when announced and/or reported.

    1. Saints quarterback Drew Brees (re-signed with Saints March 13).

    2. Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins (agreed to terms with the Vikings on March 13).

    3. Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell (received franchise tag March 6).

    4. Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (received franchise tag March 5).

    5. Panthers offensive guard Andrew Norwell (agreed to terms with Jaguars March 13).

    6. Vikings quarterback Case Keenum (agreed to terms with Broncos March 12).

    7. Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson (agreed to terms with Bears March 13).

    8. Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (received franchise tag February 27).

    9. Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (agreed to terms with Rams on March 26).

    10. Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson (agreed to terms with the Jets on March 13).

    Musta been a very crummy crop of free agent CBs.

    I go back to my adage just because a team pays ________ player like a superstar that don't make him a superstar. Just because they paid this guy like he was Revis 2009 edition that don't make him a shutdown CB.

    I never heard of this guy before the Jets signed him so far I've been VERY unimpressed with what I've seen from him in a Jets uniform.

    Best press-man corner last year statistically.

    So because you've never heard of him, and anyone else who's seen him actually play or the very experts YOU said you look to for your NFL news don't matter?

    That's pretty selective.

    The talent of FAs varies from year to year.

    He was the top CB.

    Mac went after the top CB to solidify the defensive backfield.

    So we're going to kill Tru and Mac because he's injured?

    Because is "bag is secured?"

    Incredible how whiny Jet fans are.

    We have $100 million to spend next year and if every one of those guys we sign doesn't become a Pro Bowler folks are going to bitch.

    Trumaine Johnson was a VERY good CB for the Rams--whether you saw him or not.

    For some reason, CBs production varies massively from year to year--like relief pitchers in baseball.

    So you've never heard of the guy, you've never seen him play but you're making suppositions on him NOT being there and not any of the other factors. Like an incredible offense. And the signing of Suh? And the maturation of McVeigh?

    Oh wait, you have no idea who plays for or coaches the Rams, you just look at records.

    And like to whine.

    Salary cap, like most teams. They let go of Robert Quinn too. They did Franchise Tag him twice to keep him around, but I'm guessing contract talks were at an impasse after that.

    On the other hand, we had the money to use up at the time.

    I thought this was a joke and only read it for the punchline. There was none. Do you have any proof of one thing you accused him of? I mean, this thread makes me embarrassed to be part of this site. I ain't gonna say what I am thinking so I'll just say I will not judge this player until i see him play more then a few games but man, this is a fucking pathetic!!!!
