According the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport the Los Angeles Rams are in trade talks shopping recently franchised cornerback Trumaine Johnson.
The Rams recently franchised Johnson making him a $17-million hit against the salary cap as the two sides were unable to come to a long-term agreement for the second straight year.
It is unknown who the potential suiters for Johnson would be, but some potential teams could be the Cleveland Browns and Dallas Cowboys.
The Browns signed former Rams’ defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, to call their defense. They are also seen as a landing spot for T.J. McDonald.
The Browns also have the draft capital with an extra first round pick or they could trade high second round pick.
Another team could be the Dallas Cowboys who were potential suitors for Johnson had he hit the free agent market.
The Browns and Cowboys are just guesses as this point, but the Browns especially make sense with the capital, cap space, and Williams connection.
Stay tuned for more updates.
