Two years ago, the New York Jets made a questionable decision in paying Trumaine Johnson a massive five-year deal worth $72.5 million to help fill a void at the cornerback position.

At the time, Johnson was considered an effective cornerback in the league, but plenty of football fans believed the Jets were overpaying a defender who never even earned Pro Bowl honors.

With New York recently making the tough decision to part ways with Johnson after only two seasons, now becomes the fun part in seeing which team will be up for giving the veteran another shot in 2020.

Obviously, Johnson isn’t going to make anywhere near the kind of money he originally signed with the Jets, but at least there are still numerous teams in need of depth at cornerback, including the Eagles.

As great as it was to see Philadelphia recently acquire Slay in a trade, someone like Johnson could at least provide some extra competition to the younger cornerbacks currently on the roster.

Not to mention, if the Eagles were to convince Johnson to come on board at a fair price, maybe they could be lucky enough to see the veteran return to his form from a few years ago when he was a member of the Los Angeles Rams.
