He was place on injured reserve last season and over the two seasons these were his diappointing numbers.
Johnson played in 17 games (15 starts) with 5 INTs, 7 PDs, 1 FF, 1 FR, and 62 tackles.
Connor Hughes explains the salary cap implications. The Jets are spreading the hit out over two seasons.
The #Jets released CB Trumaine Johnson with a post-June 1 designation.
That means the #Jets free $11 million now, with a $4 million dead charge. They will have an $8m dead charge in 2021, though.
