Report: Jets Regret Giving Trumaine Johnson His Massive Contract

Last offseason, the Jets gave CB Trumaine Johsnon a massive 5-year, $72.5M contract to come to New York. His contract made him the second highest paid CB in the league behind only Josh Norman.

According to Manish Mehta of the NYDN, the Jets have “massive buyer’s remorse” about giving Johnson that contract.

In his first season with the team, Johnson didn’t get along with HC Todd Bowles, he missed practices and meetings, and only played in 10 games.

Before joining the Jets, Johnson played through back-to-back franchise tags with the Rams.

The Jets are hoping new DC Gregg Williams, who coached Johnson with the Rams, will help Johnson get back to his old self.

Considering how bad that contract looks, Jets GM Mike Maccagnan has already said he won’t break the bank on Le’Veon Bell this offseason. The Jets are projected to have approximately $95M in cap space this offseason.

Even after just one season, Johnson’s contract is up there with Darrelle Revis and Muhammad Wilkerson as big money busts with the Jets.
