As June 1 cut, it frees up $11MM cap space; but $8MM cap hit carries over to next year.  Gives us more flexibility now. and sicne cap space carries over to next year, it is a wash if we don't use the space.

The NY Jets have announced that they released cornerback Trumaine Johnson. He originally signed with the team as a big money free agent in 2018. He never lived up to the contract and his time with the team is now over.

We have released CB Trumaine Johnson.

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.

I don't think any of us thought that signing would turn out to be as bad as it was

Paying near QB money to a zone/press CB2 from a team with a pass rush to play CB1 in pure man coverage for a team with no pass rush.  What could go wrong?

A lot of people here felt this was a disastrous signing at the time.  Maybe it was even worse than we thought, but not by much.

He was terrible but our esteemed head coach had no fing clue with this guy either.  'He's a press corner!'  Bowles has our CBs laying off 15 yards every play.

I'm pretty convinced that part of the reason Bowles did that was as an F U to Macc.  

You can't sign press corners if you don't have a pass rush, which Macc never made a single attempt to do (until the abortion of a pick - Jachai Polite - that is).

He might be the worse free agent signing of all time. He hardly gave us a single good game. The only thing I can remember is the Detroit game where he got the int early. But the got knocked by that WR. It was all downhill from there.
