Rams finally have a No. 1 corner under contract for next two seasons if you utilize 5 th year option. Trumaine Johnson was not a No 1 CB but he was the best they had. They tried to sign him long term but he wants No.1 ++ money and he has held up negotiations with the other key pieces of their team that needed to be addressed. I know the Rams will be giving up draft picks including this years 1st round pick in the deal but the alternative of watching Johnson sign somewhere else and try to find a replacement with your 23rd pick in the first round would have been a poor option. The Rams are built to win now and we all know how quickly those windows close. The trade will free up money to try to get Joyner signed and possibly franchise Sammy for a year and finally get the Aaron Donald deal done. Rams are in win now mode.
