Trumaine Johnson’s contract dilemma has hung over the Los Angeles Rams for the better part of two calendar years. With Johnson playing the 2017 NFL season on a second consecutive franchise tag for $16.7 million, the situation was ripe to float over the franchise for the duration of the 2017 season.
Tru isn’t having any of that.....

Welp, that clears that up. After being retained over Janoris Jenkins and being the highest paid CB in the NFL this year - in addition to the Rams attempting to trade him this offseason - Tru is ready to cut ties with the Rams.
While it’s refreshing to publicly hear where he stands on the matter, we’re just breaking into camp here folks. Day one of camp. Under a new head coach. And he says this shit.
It takes away from the ‘we not me’ that Sean McVay is attempting to instill and shows everything that was wrong with the Jeff Fisher tenure. Kudos to Tru for clearing the air, but holy hell try to pick a better time to bring this up.
